If someone was going to test the possibility that 2-Ethylhexanoic Acid is bad for car gaskets and cooling system components, what would the proper testing setup be like? I made the mistake of going down the "dex cool is bad for gaskets" rabbit hole of internet posts today and I want to run somewhat definitive tests. I'm seeing way too many opinions on the internet based on what happened to GM in the 90s. I would think that Peak's distribution model (Wal Mart, Drug stores, grocery stores, gas stations) means they are literally selling millions of gallons of 2EH coolant each year, and if this stuff was indeed bad then anyone who used it would be reporting similar issues. I'm thinking of buying some gaskets for common cars and soaking them in a 50/50 solution of something like Peak Long Life coolant and distilled water. Would this be enough to test this idea? Or would I need to keep the solution heated at around 180*F in order to "activate" the 2EH? And would I be looking for the gasket material to literally start dissolving and melting or would it be a gradual "chipping away" of the exterior? Any ideas will be appreciated. I plan on publishing the pics/results here if we can figure out a test setup that is somewhat scientific.
