Time to put the Miata away for the winter. I have some blue stuff left over from my BMW. Can I use it in my SM? FWIW, I have a Ron Davis AL rad. Thanks,

If "blue stuff" is conventional anti freeze, yes.

I see your signature says "NASA". In our region antifreeze is not allowed (unless stated in the supps).

WW: in our region, the first event of the year was conducted with snow falling and overnight temps in the mid 20s F ..... want to guess how many cars had a bit of antifreeze in them [scratchchin]

So did ours, hence the "unless stated in the supps"

It isn't stated in the supps here - but, sub zero overnight and plenty of cars outside ..... draw your own conclusions. Kinda unstated supps I guess!
