      corporation pop and a bit of anti freeze, dont think you need to use any expensive evian type stuff.

                Is the expansion tank empty or just low, if it is only a small amount then just top up with water. if you go the VXL they do a winter check which includes the checking of the anti freeze strength etc

                  may have a slight leak, just need to keep an eye on it and top it up. but ill be doing some miles over the next weeks so id rather have some with me in the boot as a precaution. better safe than sorry.

                            don't mix different brands of anti freeze though.... i use distilled water, anti freeze 50/50 mix and also water wetter.
