I use Prestone Extended Life 5/150, 5yr/150,000 mile. This is silicate, phosphate, and borate free.

Available at WalMart.

Make sure you don't get the DEXCOOL, it's not the same!

From their web page:

Q. Does Prestone® Antifreeze/Coolant contain phosphates?
A. Some European automobile manufacturers request that a phosphate-free antifreeze be used in their vehicles. This issue is related to the extremely high mineral content of the water in Europe. If you were to mix an antifreeze that contained phosphates with the type of water they have in Europe, it may produce deposits that can settle in the cooling system and promote corrosion. However, in North America we do not have this type of water problem. Typical North American coolants have contained phosphates (which is part of the corrosion inhibitor package) for many years. Therefore, the question of phosphates is a non-issue here in North America. Prestone® Antifreeze/Coolant is completely safe for use in both foreign and domestic vehicles. [b]For those consumers who would feel more comfortable using a phosphate-free antifreeze, our Prestone® Extended Life 5/150 Antifreeze/Coolant is phosphate, silicate, and borate free.[/b] This coolant uses a special chemistry and technology that extends the life of the corrosion inhibitor package so that it lasts for five years or 150,000 miles (whichever comes first), and is safe for all cars and light trucks (old or new).

The Wal-Mart's around here carry the Peak Global they will work. Advance Auto, and Auto Zone didn't have anything the last time I looked.
Wal-Mart use to carry the Havoline Extended Life, but the've switched to the Peak Global's. They carry two different ones, one is a heavy duty truck coolant, the other is more geared towards passanger cars, I buy the heavy duty, but either will work.
