Antifreeze question

Anybody use any additives in their antifreeze? I'm replacing cracked radiator with CFS 3 core heavy duty new water pump thermostat and was wondering if any of the additives are worth putting in or if they do more harm than good.

No harm, and really no benefit either.

A new Gallup opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

IMHO they might help a Very small amount as a band aid for a poor cooling system. For a well maintained cooling system that is functioning properly they are a waste of money.
