Anybody use Amsoil Antifreeze?

Amsoil claim:

Anti-Scale
AMSOIL Antifreeze/Coolants are poly-organic acid formulations that do not contain inorganic salts (phosphate, nitrate, nitrite, silicate, borate, amine) found in conventional and hybrid organic acid (HOAT) antifreeze/coolants. These materials are responsible for almost all scaling issues in cooling systems, and they can also precipitate to form scale if the antifreeze/coolant inhibitor system is at the wrong pH or mixed with incompatible products. AMSOIL Antifreeze/Coolants virtually eliminate scaling problems.

2012 Tungsten R/T Classic, 6 speed w/STP, 730 RHR w/sound group II and heritage wheels.

I run it, i put it in when I installed my CAM. I also use the coolant boost. I won't be changing it out for a couple more years so I won't be able to update you on any kind of build up that I may find. I use their products from end to end and I have for almost 10 years now. I really trust their products (No I'm not a retailer/distributor). I don't think you can go wrong using it.

There should be no issue running the Amsoil antifreeze correct? 2012 5.7L require the HOAT type antifreeze. I want to be sure that I use something compatible.

Are planning to do a complete flush? The concern is mixing the different types as you end up with a Gel instead of a fluid. So if you do a complete flush there is no concern at all. However Amsoil coolant will mix with other types.

Compatible With Other Fluids
AMSOIL Antifreeze/Coolants are compatible with all ethylene and propylene antifreeze
and coolant colors, as well as all plastics and elastomers (hoses, gaskets, etc.) found
in cooling systems. However, mixing propylene and ethylene glycol formulations can
make it difficult to predict freeze protection. If mixing for top-off is unavoidable, it is
recommended to flush the cooling system at the next convenient opportunity.

The amsoil coolant used for 2012 5.7L is ANTPC according to their website.
