 For a 15 psi cap, the boiling point of a 50/50 mix is 264F. For straight water, it's 250F. At a lower pressure cap the gap is smaller. Sooooo....in the case of the 7 psi cap boiling at 220 - 225, the system is boiling earlier than it should. If had any anti-freeze at all in there, the boiling point should have been even higher. --- Nory P wrote: > > > You can't say a given radiator with a given pressure > cap will overheat at a set number of degrees -- it > would depend on the coolant mix (assuming nobody is > crazy enough to run straight water), right?
