It's the 5yr./150k mile orange stuff that GM puts in all their new vehicles.
Good stuff. Less prone to cause corrosion like the green G-11 that came in
my car. I think the orange G-12 is basically the same, but I'm not sure.

Don't use either. I put Dex Cool in each of the 3 VR6's I've owned.
It cost less than half as much, works just as well, and you can buy it most anywhere.
Any concerns about the aluminum corrosion- Dex Cool comes in the all aluminum LS1.
