A story why I prefer distilled water. I worked for a major communications company and maintained many microwave repeater stations that had diesel emergency alternators. They were inside the building with heaters that kept the temperature above freezing so we didn't use antifreeze. We used an anti rust product mixed with distilled water and we never had any radiator or engine crud problem at all. You could look inside the radiator fill cap and see that the copper inside looked brand new.
So that sold me on never using tap water. As Dave said, tap water has too many minerals and they cause crud build-up.
