Default Best antifreeze from auto zone or O'Reilly Auto Parts

What is the best version of antifreeze to use from auto zone or O'Reilly Auto Parts.

I put some fleet pride with SCA Pink top in the other day but I think I did not get enough as I can not see any now in the glass area.
I used my Napa card and got half off.

I am only close by a auto zone or O'Reilly Auto Parts. Need to hit the road tomorrow.

What would be the best to use with SCA from one of the stores no Napa by us. Do other store have the fleet pride?

For a 8v92

Thanks

You can also check out this:
Shell Rotella Ultra ELC Antifreeze, or "fill-for-life" in conjunction with a monitoring program and the use of Rotella ELC Extender, chemistry is designed for heavy-duty diesel, gasoline and natural gas powered engines. Detroit Diesel 93K217

It may also be acceptable, but I have not used it as Ionly use the DD Power Cool. $9.50 a gallon at my local DD dealer.

O Riley's has nothing and advanceautoparts only has the Peak Fleet Charge SCA Precharged

Looks like my only choice.

I just found a local tractor store that says they have Rotella with SCA in it 50/50 mix.

So my choice is
Rotella with SCA
or
Peak Fleet Charge SCA Precharged this is on sale for less money right now

Dose it matter if i mix brands as long as they have the SCA IN THEM?

You must ensure the coolant your adding is compatible with whats in the system. DO NOT MIX TYPES!!! If your are unsure of what you have add Distilled Water until you can find what you need. Why take the chance in disaster with the coolant? When you find what you need, buy extra.

I do not know what the last owner used I know he had it flushed a few years ago.

I added in the Napa Fleet pride the other day. Now after reading a lot in here I found that it seems a lot of people are using the Peak Fleet Charge.

So i think I will go with that as the posts I read say it is compatible with each other and power cool.

If I just added in Distilled Water how well will that work?

I just called the last owner and he did have it flushed and they put in Malcool he says.
