most likely have pink G12 which is superseded by purple G12

look in the reservoir and see what color it is it will either be pink or purple. G12 comes pink or purple. The purple is the latest coolant and can be mixed with the pink however if you are doing a complete flush you should just convert to purple. The change must have just occurred and that is why they still sell pink (they still have a warehouse full of it).
