Default Anybody use Peak Long Life?

My subie was due for a coolant change and I ended up settling with Peak Long Life, 50/50 pre mixed, and a bottle of Subaru coolant conditioner. I drained the old coolant(Subaru Long Life green), put in distilled water, ran a cycle, drained, and added Peak/Subaru coolant conditioner.

Well, I was reading the ingredients and it shows "proprietary inhibitors", which means it has 2-EHA. So essentially I put Dexcool into my car, along with Subaru coolant conditioner.

Has anybody else used Peak Long Life? Did you have any issues using it? Should I run this until the next coolant change interval(30k/3 years) or just drain/flush and use Subaru super coolant in a year?

Subaru coolant is not expensive. Just get it. It's not like oil that you change more often. Many people run prestone or peak in subies and Hondas even though the manufacturer recommends their own, and I have rarely heard of any major issues. Some people claim of premature water pump failure but who really knows. For every story I hear bad there is a guy using prestone forever. I use the manufacture because I do it myself and I am saving money anyway.

Where did you get Peak Global? I checked Autozone, Napa, and Walmart. None seem to carry it. They only have the universal stuff.

Napa is where I get mine. Tell them to order part # PEA 00407 this is for one gallon of full strength Peak Global. The only thing I don't like is the color because that light gold tone is hard to see in the over flow bottle.

I found Peak Global Lifetime at Walgreens as well. Really strange that I had to go to a pharmacy to pick up something a bunch of auto parts stores won't stock.
