I noticed today that the coolant reservoir in my MINI needs topping up. (It has done 300 miles since new)Checking out the Owner's Handbook, I found that there is no specification provided for the coolant. It mentions something about 'MINI Service' which sounds like a scam to deter punters from using Halford's, or some such, cheaper but adequate own label stuff.

Any suggestions, please?:confused:

Not all cars say in the manual. Check for a label near the pressure cap or coolant reservoir that specifies kind, amount, mix, etc...

Basically, it's the green kind (2 years) or orange kind (5 years). Probably a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water like almost every other car in the world.

Don't take a chance, call the dealer for the info if you can't find it.
