You should not use any coolant on your VW - only use the VW-recommended G12 or G12+(pink) type of anti-freeze. Try this brand from any local auto parts stores in your area; Beck/Arnley - Engine Coolant / Antifreeze = Part # 252-1022. This type of anti-freeze utilizes phosphated organic acid technology also known as Hybrid Organic Acid Technology (HOAT).
At the recommended 50/50 mixture of anti-freeze to water - the cooling system takes 3.8 quarts (little less than 1 gallon) versus the total system capacity of: 7.6 quarts.
