    • Halfords Antifreeze Tester MEG is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 30.
      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy Better I usually find Halfords brand products are good value. This time however they fall short. This tester is quite small and can be difficult to use on some cars, those that I tried where no problem. So three stars for that. Price was,as they say, cheap as chips. So another three stars But, I am afraid it just did not work. I tried it on my car, two little balls rose up. Anti-freeze top up required ? As per instructions, I cleaned the tester in fresh water. Two little balls rose up ! Curious, I tested the fresh anti-freeze I just bought. You probably guessed. Again two of those pesky balls rose up !! So I am afraid for performance, just one star.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from A most helpful product I needed to check the antifreeze level and this tester is ideal - so simple to use and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended!

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work Bought antifreeze tester today,thought I had good reading until I went to wash the item under cold tap water and found that normal tap water was medium on the reading,so maybe the reading is not so accurate????

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!.. Halfords Antifreeze Tester MEG: Some of the reviews that I read about this product when deciding which tester to buy were unduly negative! It is exactly as advertised, indicating sufficiently accurately the antifreeze condition. easily & economically. Actually I did not eventually even buy the current product!! Meanwhile I had discovered the exact same product amongst many tools I recovered from over ten years ago, & it still works as well as ever. No contest, Victor.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two minutes check An absolute great little gadget,takes only two minutes to check your antifreeze,simple to use ,dip into your antifreeze squeeze the top and that takes an amount of antifreeze into the clear container then just check count your floating balls,its as simple as that a child could do it.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick & Easy Check Great piece of kit for DIY car maintenance. Not sure why there are some neg reviews, what do some people expect for under £2? - if you want a workshop hydrometer go and spend £10-£20. We have 3 cars, an old Peugeot run about - the tester indicated no antifreeze (therefore action req'd), a Saab - the indicator showed medium strength (so good for -15C degrees), and an AMG Merc - the indicator showed max strength (good for -30C degrees)...... job done.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from What does it test? I tested this product using water straight from the tap (no antifreeze added) and got a reading of 'low'!! A mixture of 40% antifreeze to 60% water gave a reading between 'medium' and 'high'. Certainly not 'ideal' for checking your protection from freezing.
