I like to use BMW coolant since its phosphate free (doesn't corrode aluminum). Last year I bought 2 gallons and the total came out to under $40. This year I went to go buy one gallon and the price was over 50 bones. What up with the 2.5x price increase... and... can anyone get some for cheap?

coolant prices are WAY up...not just bmw coolant...i work at a truck shop/manafacturer and our prices went up huge..i can't remember the reasoning...but expect to pay more every where....

steel prices are also WAY up...the chinese were buying all the scrap up..

Prestone isn't phosphate free :-( But you're right in that I'll be looking somewhere else for coolant
