Why do I have blue coolant?

Why did honda give me blue coolant? Its Honda Fluid Type 2 50/50 with extra performance additive or some crap. Is that why its blue. Anybody else using this? Any probs with using it? I filled the coolant passage in my block up with it. Im not mixing it with other coolant. Everything is empty right now, other than the block.

Peace

Yo listen up: here's a story
About a little guy
That lives in a blue world
And all day and all night and everything he sees is
Just blue like him inside and outside
Blue his house with a blue little window
And a blue Corvette and everything is blue for him
And himself and everybody around

'Cause he aint got nobody to listen: ...
I'm blue (da ba dee)
I'm blue (da ba dee)
I'm blue (da ba dee)
I'm blue (da ba dee)


I have a blue house with a blue window
Blue is the color of all that I wear
Blue are the streets and all the trees are too
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue
Blue are the people here that walk around
Blue like my Corvette it's standing outside
Blue are the words I say and what I think
Blue are the feeling that live inside me
I'm blue (da ba dee)
I'm blue (da ba dee)

honda changed it to blue. It used to be green. I talked to the reps when I bought some coolant at the dealer and they told me its new style, im using the blue coolant and no trouble.

yeah, ti just way to ID the Honda fluid from the rest. That way the people at Jiffy lube know that the civic need a fluid they don't carry, then you have to go to Honda to get it.

By the way, my diesel is red and only cost about 2.30 a gallon
