Default Water Wetter vs Everybody Else

I ran across this comparison in Turbo Mag.

Interesting results. I am currently testing Purple Ice with plain water, will post my results soon.
Cheers,

They did not test that, so I was not going to recommend it, but yes dish soap should be about the same.

Unlike Water Wetter some of those alternatives contain glycols. So don't use them in a race vehicle unless you KNOW they do not contain glycol. Glycol on the track is bad, bad, bad.

Yeah, they saw 5* temperature variance in both ambient temps and resultant temps. Big surprise.
