What kind of antifreeze?

I've been searching the forums but I can't seem to find a good answer for what kind of antifreeze I should put in my l110. Any help?

I just use diesel engine antifreeze in my R110 (same sd220 engine as your L110), I heard it has anti-foaming agents in it, has worked fine for years

I use Prestone in all my trucks including the S120. I don't know the exact amount but mine takes a bit over 2 gallons
56 S120 4x4,

yea, we woke up and my wife said stop shaking the bed,,,,,I said YOU stop shaking the bed,,,,,then I woke up more and said Earthquake!

I then thought about that emergency bug out bag I told myself I'd make after the last one we had,

never did and probably won't again,,,nice to think about doing though,

About a year ago or more, we had one here in Iowa of all places, it was unmistakable as to what it was, but such an odd feeling if you have never been through one. Felt like I was sitting on an old porch "Davenport that a bunch of guy had lifted and were moving around while I sat!
