ATV enthusiasts use their machines for a variety of different applications from hunting and farm work, leisure and travel, to high performance racing and freestyle competition. No matter the style, all-terrain vehicles are frequently pushed to their limits. From extreme heat and cold, to deep mud, water and other various conditions, it’s important to have products you can rely on to keep you running and away from the garage. In addition to temperature control, your machine's coolant is also responsible for lubricating internal seals and components, and corrosion prevention. Whether you continue to run traditional 50/50 antifreeze, or convert to Evans Powersports Coolant, here are a few things you should know:
Extreme heat can do serious damage to your car. With a heat wave driving temperatures into the 100s this summer, motorists need to take extra precautions to avoid boilovers, which can turn deadly when the internal temperature of your engine reaches a critical level. Not only do boilovers stop your engine (and the air conditioning), they can result in expensive repairs.
When I’m at the races, it’s fairly common for people to ask how our waterless coolant compares to other brands like Engine Ice, Maxima Coolanol, Bel-Ray Moto Chill, Amsoil, etc. While there are differences between antifreeze formulations, the one rule is that they are all half water. Based on that fact, their boiling point, vapor pressure, corrosion protection, and lifespan are all pretty much the same.
You’re gassed up, fully inspected, in sound mechanical condition, and ready to hit the trails? Not so fast. Before you leave the pavement, be sure you have all the equipment you need.
As the only manufacturer of waterless engine coolants, Evans Cooling Systems has coolants that work for almost any engine, but some vehicles will benefit from waterless coolant more than others. How do you know if you are a candidate for Evans waterless coolant in your engine? This simple checklist will help you decide.
