DIY recommended coolant?

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and would like to ask if anyone could recommend a coolant for the MCS. I'm kinda lost. Should I just get those generic ones off the shelve?

Would greatly appreciate some input.
Thanks
=D

Didn't realise there was a difference until googled it, its all about the PGs and EGs .

Didn't even have it 3 weeks when I had to top it up.
