    Great thread everyone.

But, just to be sure, this time I carefully and slowly pulled the dipstick out and re-examined the color. It definitely still looks green on this dipstick, and it also still looks green through the plastic coolant tank, so I am now totally convinced that the Stinger does take the typical green coolant. It is definitely not blue, or even a sickly yellow....the coolant is green...
    Thanks for doing this @lrvanallen

    What ever you use do not pour the green one in there, as it has be aluminum compatible.

    LOL!!....hey I have nothing but Nissan's on my garage and they use the blue color coolant, so that maybe where the confusion came from, however I am going to check the reservoir on the Stinger once I get home to find out exactly what color is it.

    I think it was GREEN until you topped it off with blue and turned it teal.... ;-)

    Luckily I have yet to top it off, but now that you mention it, that would be a cool looking color for the coolant
