Does anybody know why anti-freeze for the Slingshot is so expensive? Does it have to be special or will any anti-freeze work in it? Thanks for any and all info!

I'm not near my owners manual, but it's probably just a relabeled GM Dexcool antifreeze. They came out with that back in the 90's and rated it at 100,000 life and GM mandated it for their fleet. Just a guess, but that was what was up their sleeve that started off this "GM only fluid deal where they basically sold a license to manufacturers so those companies could sell their products as GM recommended and approved. Another idea to generate additional profits.

Thanks for the info! I guess with 100K mile life, I won't have to worry about buying any then, right?
