    IPA is a brilliant cleaning agent, but its a rubbish antifreeze!
    To survive -4C withouth freezing you'd need a 10% mix - 65 litres!!

    What do you need it for in this country? If your water is pure it won't freeze until it's well below -10°c. I had mine still liquid at -15°C when we were testing. The only reason it freezes is there's some impurities in it for the ice to crystallise around.
