I have. No real difference but I have 50/50 mix. That stuff works best with I believe with 15% coolant to water.

It ain't easy being cheesy:

I have used redline water wetter and a couple others which is basically the same thing with straight water alone and antifreeze and I have never seen any difference.

My '03 takes a special anti-freeze according to the cap on the over flow bottle. It's a light reddish colored as verses the lime green stuff of yore.
