Exclamation NEW "Blue" MB Coolant- compatible w/"yellow"

Cross-posted from the "list" managed by MBCCA Technical Editor, Stu Ritter.

My feeling is the "blue" hides any contaminents better than "yellow", esp. due to the high FSS intervals.

While preparing tech materials for the STAR I ran across this little tech bulletin.

ALL PASSENGER CAR MODELS, COOLANT: For your information, recently the factory started using TWO kinds of engine coolant anti-freeze. The
original one is tinted yellowish and the new one is tinted bluish. Both coolant anti-freezes are compatible with each other.

I just thought of this .... if you mix yellow and blue, don't you get green?! This might add confusion about which coolant someone is using.
