Re: How much G12 is needed for Coolant flush ?? (VDUBLUVENTO)

G12 is for newer cars(pink coolant), you need G11(blue coolant).
One gallon should be fine.

The pink stuff is fine.
Some aftermarket companies make the same stuff but for a lot cheaper. ACDelco and Pentosin are the two I found out here. Make sure it's the pink stuff though.
The capacity is 6.5L(1.7 gallon).

you can use whatever vw coolant you want as long as you have the system flushed clean before changing types. for instance, i am running the purple vw G12+ coolant from the late mk4 cars in my 16v.

if you change types and dont have it clean, the two will mix together and turn to gel. not good. however, the G12+ supposedly can be mixed with either G11 or G12 without adverse effects. just dont mix G11 and G12.
