Prestone De Icer for SC in Florida

Hello All,

Anyone out there running a RIPP Supercharger in Florida - I need your help. I am installing the SC this weekend, but can't find the Prestone De Icer for the intercooler.

I have searched, but let's face it, in Florida we really don't have a problem with ice on the windshield.

Any know where I can put my hands on a gallon of this stuff?

Thanks

Yeah, they still do, but I wanted to get some before this weekend. I was hoping I could find some down here.

Yeah, I got that as well, but when you call these fine retailers, you get "What? De Icer? What the hell do you use that for in Florida?"

I have called everyone on that list, and no De Icer.

I was really hoping that someone who ran a RIPP unit could tell me if anyone down here in the sunny South actually carries it.
