Where can I buy FL22 coolant?

I'VE SEARCHED!(but my Search-Fu is weak.)

I've been to Kragen, Vatozone, and Napa. They all looked at me weird when I said "FL22 coolant." I don't wanna drive to the dealership for a gallon or so. I'm gonna try Vacavalley Auto Part tomorrow. Any suggestions?

You can buy it at mazda,

Here's what mazda says:

To enhance service life, reduce waste material, and lower maintenance costs, a new long-life pre-mixed “FL22”
engine coolant is being introduced into mass-production for the models shown above.

It is recommended that FL22 coolant continue to be used for models originally filled with FL22 coolant from the
factory.
CAUTION: FL22 coolant is “pre-mixed” and must be added to the cooling system as is. DO NOT ADD
WATER TO FL22 COOLANT. Adding water will dilute the solution and lessen the effectiveness of
the coolant.
If coolant replacement becomes necessary for prior Mazda models (not originally filled with FL22 coolant), FL22
coolant can be used. If FL22 coolant is used for prior models, be sure to place the FL22 sticker on the reserve
tank or degas bottle to indicate FL22 coolant is being used.
NOTE:
• In the case of prior models, the coolant replacement interval is every five (5) years or 60,000 miles
(96,000 km).
• Six (6) FL22 stickers are included with each case of coolant.

Not very clear, but it's just another new type of coolant. Says here on the bottle, "ethylene glycol based.... 55/45 mixture recommended..... developed to provide corrosion and rust protection.....boiling point 270 degrees, freezing point -47 degrees. Ingrediants: Ethylene Glycol (107-21-1), Water (7732-18-5), Diethylene Glycol (111-46-6), Potassium Hydroxide (1310-58-3), Proprietary Inhibitors (NJTSRN 217).

LoL

Not asking if I can use it or not. My car comes equipped with it, I'm just a little on the low side( below minimum ) and need to buy some. I've looked at those 3 stores and couldn't find any.

hopefully it works better than GM's ill-fated Dexcool long life coolant. sure you didn't have to change the coolant for 100k miles, but you had to replace the water pump in half that

is that like the GM crap that actually started eating away at their heater cores (check out GM cars 1999-2001ish and the lack of a heater)? what's that called... dex something. Whatever happened to just reg. ole anti freeze.

I get the picture.... posting too many replies on this site and you get mocked at with a spammie. i'll use the other mazda forums for awhile. email me if you need something or have any questions as i guess im one of the few people that actually like to help.
