The reason I commented on both the colour of the coolant and the container was to raise the question of whether both types are actually the same thing. The blue stuff we get here comes in a container with numerous languages on the label of similar styling to most MB products sold world-wide. The cost is pressumably a result of it being shipped from Germany. I was interested that your (yellow) coolant comes in a container with an almost after-market appearance, labelled it would appear, only in English. Is it really manufactured by Mercedes-Benz or someone else suggesting the possibility of it being available under a different brand name? I cannot see the country of origin in the pic of the coolant Technique posted however I notice that it is 1 US gallon rather than say 5 litres. I am still puzzled as to why the availability of two distinctly different looking products, each claiming to be the genuine product. What colour MB coolant is used in countries other than Australia and USA?
