Pinto antifreeze

Hi all I've just fitted a new all aluminium radiator to my 2 litre pinto. I'm not sure which type of antifreeze is best / safest to use please? Cheers.

Safest bet is blue. Downside is it should be replaced every few years.
OAT (pink/red usually) lasts longer but more care is needed regarding metals in the system.

John Deere Cool-Guard II (not the PG version) is a really good option for corrosion even in multi-metal systems

also they have dealers all over the UK so its really easy to find
