It's very much light dependent! Sorry the pictures won't come out straight. This is straight from the bottle. You can see its purple when outside of the black container but orange when in the radiator!

Okay , the 13+ coolant is purple. ...from the factory.

Once the purple coolant gets HOT , it changes to an ORANGE slash pinkish orange?

Unbelievable. ..

Checked it cold and it's spot on. Liquid level just into the fill neck and comes up when pinched. Coolant res is a dot below max when cold. I'm satisfied with it. I get no bubbles when squeezing the upper radiator hose and it's firm when the thermostat opens. All in all success!

Universal Coolants

A bit of newer info but nothing to answer all questions.

OK now I'm really kind of confused and scratching my balls. After about 12,000 miles I decided to suck a gallon of the global lifetime coolant out of the radiator it's self. Lo and behold after sitting for a couple of hours in the garage the damn stuff turned orange.

When this stuff is still in the jug and has never been used it is a golden amber color.

I am going to not worry about it one bit though I know I've got some of the best coolant available in my radiator and reservoir so I'm gonna try to sleep at night. Here is a pic!

I'm going to filter the coolant through a coffee filter and reuse it overtime.

If there comes a time when I can't find PGL @ Loves or Walgreens I will do a flush & switch to G-05 for sure!
I always have 3 Gal of PGL in the garage though.
