    FYI undiluted anti freeze will burn with a colorless flame!Dont let coolant get too hot and be carefull when using a torch to heat a pesky dripper-Mike Moloney

    You are running your shot coolant way to hot if it ignites. Also as any other chemical you must use in a well ventalated area. Anti freeze can be explossive if given the right air to vapor to temp conditions.

    check out above link for a little more info.

    How many cars have been set fire do to a coolant leak ? Im sure it has happened somewhere @ sometime but not many.
