T444E coolant meeting International B1 Type III specifications

Found this deal on Amazon -- six gallons of Delo (227808497-6PK) Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant for $163. Doesn't seem half bad. THIS PDF verifies that it does indeed meet B1 Type III specifications and it is free of nitrates, borates, silicates, phosphates and amines ... rated for 700,000 miles or 15k road hours.

What are we all using in our T444E's? Anyone using a cheaper option out there?

While fixing leaks in my 86 radiator I have been using fleet charge by PEAK that is stated as formulated for all heavy duty engines and cost around 16$ a gallon.
A few other things is through an engineering forum I follow is that 1 the EPA is changing antifreeze again (don't have the specifics in front of me) and by 2020 they want to change (mandated) auto freon to a 510? Type ? 2 for AC units they want to change to a 1233&1234 instead of 134 and 410. For the refrigerant men
Some of my numbers might be off a little cause I am playing on here instead of my homework. But more EPA stuff!

1234 is already in use in some cars now... it has similar cooling efficiency properties to 134a at Low RPM's / low flow.. and better cooling efficiencies than 134a at high speed / high flow...

Is this compliant to International B1 Type III specifications? They are very specific on the "right" stuff...
