What Color is the HOAT Coolant?

I ask because the coolant in my resevoir bottle is PINK, not red/orange, and it is possible the previous owner filled up with pink RV antifreeze just to save a buck. The only pic I've seen of a resevoir bottle, the coolant was red/orange, almost brownish. Mine is definitley pink. Anyone?

I don't know all the colors but the OEM is orange and the Zerex I have used is orange. Hope this helps a little...

Mopar is pinky-orange-red depending on the age, the lot, and your eyes.

If it's pink pink pink, it might not be the right stuff.

I am color blind, but my wife says the Mopar stuff is orange. Couldn't prove it by me though.

HOAT coolant is clear and who ever is selling it adds what ever color dye they want,or have the supplier add dye.
