Sporty's shipped quick. Seems like fewer FBOs are stocking it.

Pros: TKS fluid works great. The main problem is getting some. Sporty's carrying this and in a larger size is great. My plane holds about 5 gallons and that lasts about 2 hours. This is a long time because you should never hang around in ice. The TKS just gives you some time to get out. Shipping is a great deal with Sporty's. Two of the 5 gallons and only about $18 for shipping! This is for 90 pounds of TKS! Cons: Expensive. If you have TKS then there is really nothing to say about product. You need this like you need gas. I just wish it was more available at local FBO so I could get refilled when I am travelling.

I ordered the 5 gallon "jug" of TKS fluid and can't get the damn thing open. It looks like there's a threaded part to the main opening cap (assuming there is some special tool that wasn't provided). Any ideas how to get this thing open? Pretty frustrating!
Adam W on May 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Take a pair of large pliers that fit around the cap, squeeze tightly and twist off. You are right, they are tough to get started.
Is this deicer per SAE AMS1435C?
Chuck T on Jul 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It does not specifically list this on the labeling or the manufacturer's website.

Is the Kilfrost 406B TKS fluid certified for use in the Cessna 208 Caravan G1000?
David C on Mar 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I do not know about the Cessna, I use it in my 2015 Cirrus SR22 GTS with no problems.
Can you confirm that this meets the specs of AL-5 (DTC-406b) that is required by Cirrus? Thank you.
