Coolant question

Can i put this coolant (it goes up to -37) and it has these specs:

BMW N 600 69.0
MB Blatt 325.0
MTU-MTL 5048
OPEL/GM B 040 0240, QL 130 100

ASTM D 1122 ASTM D 1287 ASTM D 3321

If its Glycol based then yes it will be fine but it needs mixing still to protect to around -23 degrees... thats what "type-d" means afterall, not the colour or the fact the pre-mix from Renault has this written on the label.

Yes, it's based on mono-ethyl-glycol (MEG) + additives to prevent corosion on aluminium...and mixed it protects to -37 degrees. Is it ok to use it, because now i have some red (VAG) coolant.

If you mix it more it'll be weaker and so protect to whatever you need it to... Hydrometers are cheap these days and very easy to use ;)

I can't see why it wouldn't be okay to use as it has corrosion inhibitors. Its just a tad strong at -37 degrees for this climate.
