    Coolant Question

    I have a 2015 CLA 250 4Matic with flex fuel. I need to add some coolant and the BeVo 310 sheet shows that spec 325.0 (G-05) is ok for passenger cars up to April 2014. Sheet 325.5 (G-40) says not to use in passenger vehicles. Does anyone know what a 2015 CLA 250 uses?

    Depending on production date yours may use the pink coloured coolant ... the initial runs used the blue coloured stuff
    Safest bet is get the same coolant from the dealer?
    Was looking at the Bevo sheets and nothing specific for >2014 ... odd

    This is for the CLA250. It's a concentrate which means you gotta mix it manually with DISTILLED water @ 50/50 ratio.

    AMSOIL has a option, but just plain old green?

    This is what I use in mine for last 2 years:

    AMSOIL Antifreeze/Coolants are poly-organic acid formulations that do not contain inorganic salts (phosphate, nitrate, nitrite, silicate, borate, amine) found in conventional and hybrid organic acid (HOAT) antifreeze/coolants. These materials are responsible for almost all scaling issues in cooling systems, and they can also precipitate to form scale if the antifreeze/coolant inhibitor system is at the wrong pH or mixed with incompatible products. AMSOIL Antifreeze/Coolants virtually eliminate scaling problems.

    Long-Life Formulations
    AMSOIL Antifreeze/Coolants do not contain inorganic salts that deplete over time and turn into scale deposits. Their unique blend of organic acids provide durable and long-lasting protection of cooling system components. Passenger Car/Light Truck Antifreeze & Coolant can be used for 150,000 miles or five years, whichever comes first, in passenger cars and light trucks. Heavy-Duty Antifreeze & Coolant can be used for 600,000 miles, 12,000 hours of operation or six years, whichever comes first, in heavy-duty and off-road applications.

    Compatible With Other Fluids
    AMSOIL Antifreeze/Coolants are compatible with all ethylene and propylene antifreeze and coolant colors, as well as all plastics and elastomers (hoses, gaskets, etc.) found in cooling systems. However, mixing propylene and ethylene glycol formulations can make it difficult to predict freeze protection. If mixing for top-off is unavoidable, it is recommended to flush the cooling system at the next convenient opportunity.

    AMSOIL PASSENGER CAR/LIGHT TRUCK ANTIFREEZE & COOLANT (ANTPC)

    Engineered to exceed original equipment manufacturer (OEM) requirements.
    Pre-mixed 50/50 with high-purity water.
    Unique poly-organic acid formulation imparts multi-vehicle application.
    Phosphate-, nitrate-, nitrite-, silicate-, borate- and amine-free.
    Boil-over protection up to 265°F with a 15 psi radiator cap.
    Freeze protection down to -34°F.

    AMSOIL Passenger Car/Light Truck Antifreeze & Coolant is formulated for use in ALL domestic and import passenger cars and light trucks.
    SERVICE LIFE
    Protection up to 150,000 miles or 5 years, whichever comes first, in passenger cars and light trucks.
