    This coolant can be bought online (S&H included) for about 1/2 the price of SLLC at the Toyota dealership.

    It is made by Valvoline, and the spec sheet seems to mirror pretty well what I think I know about SLLC .

    Opinions please.

    Addendum:
    General info
    Places to buy:
    Locally at NAPA auto parts. $14 a gallon in my city
    Online; best price I found was $13 a gallon through zorotools.com ($50 purchase has free S&H)

    My comment would be, for something that is changed so infrequently why would you want to save a few dollars on this?

    I paid $18.95 for my last gal of Toyota SLLC, so the price difference is not worth it to me. However, the chemistry is advertised to be very similar to most Asian coolants, so I think it will probably work fine.

    I am going to drain/refill both coolant circuits during my next 'big' DIY maintenance. I'll need about 4 gallons of coolant, and could pay about $100 at the dealership, or I can pay $52 online and have the stuff delivered to my home.

    Huh. Let me think about this ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...
