I just looked up my 2015 scout at the Indian website looking for coolants and all I can find is a 1qt bottle of 50/50 premix with a picture of a scout on it... However, it says it doesn't fit my scout, lol. Website error? I'm just as happy to go to the auto store and get the right kind BUT: I can't find what the right kind is after search for a hour on the net. Anybody have a specific type they are using that is compatible with the scouts system?

Actual ingredients are varied across the many brands, other than having mainly ethylene glycol in them.

Indian’s says:

Ethylene Glycol
107-21-1
45 - 55%
Diethylene Glycol
111-46-6
1.0 - 3.0%
Organic acid Salts
Proprietary
1.0 - 3.0%
Denatonium Benzoate
3734-33-6
< 0.1%

For example here is a Mobil:

2-ETHYLHEXANOIC ACID, SODIUM SALT 19766-89-3 0.1 - < 1% H361(D)
DISODIUM TETRABORATE PENTAHYDRATE 12179-04-3 0.1 - < 0.3% H319(2A), H360(1B)(D), H360(1B)(F)
ETHYLENE GLYCOL 107-21-1 30 - < 40% H302, H373

I looked at a couple others and each has some difference.
I think I would just go with Indian to be sure it’s exactly right.

Oh yeah, I looked up that benzoate stuff. Apparently just an additive to make it bitter tasting.
Bitrex is its brand name.
