Duratek 420R Coolant

Evening all,

Apologies if this has been asked before but i need to top up the anti-freeze/coolant and not sure exactly what to buy. The Caterham manual says Ford Super Plus Anti-Freeze but I've read it's fine to buy something else from Halfords. It's currently pink in colour on a 2019 420R.

Any help welcome, thanks.

Here's what's under the bonnet of my 2020 310R:

Obviously it doesn't have to be MOTUL, any OAT should be fine if it's pink or orange. That said, I do have a top up bottle of MOTUL just to make sure it's the same. I think I bought from Opie Oils with the club discount.

If it's orange in colour then you would have been originally filled with Motul, my 2019 kit was supplied with Comma G30 concentrate, which is more pink in colour.

If the coolant is pink/red ish in colour then it should be an Organic Additive Technology (OAT) coolant. Halfords sell their own OAT undiluted or ready mixed plus other brands.

10% voucher will come in handy.

Thanks all, bought the Comma G30, similar colour so I'm happy. My label under the bonnet just says any Caterham approved.
