Make sure you flush it really good. You don't want any of the green in there when putting in G-05 or Mopars coolant.

You can use the green IF you do a complete flush of the block, heater core, etc. Get all of the old coolant out. Any /all of the coolant I have seen sold says long term/ high milage-IF- you completely flush out what ever WAS in there before. Now that being said- The Zerex is still probably better coolant.IMO
