Feser tube.

HydrX is one of the best additives around and it comes in the green you're looking for. It's a pump lubricant, anti-corrosive, and biocide all in one. The $2.99 bottle mixed with distilled water makes a liter of fluid.

Yeah it all peters out pretty quick...If you don't mind just blue, you can get a bottle of "Tracer-Line" UV dye at most auto parts stores for $5 or 6 bux for a 1 ounce bottle...I just use a couple of drops so I can leak test with a UV light...Its pretty bright and you just have to add a couple more drops when it goes bad...

Here is what it looks like mixed with G11 Pentosin and a couple of drops of the "Tracer-Line", it was a new re-fill, I had a couple of UV's on the bottom of my res...




And a darker shot of the same mix...

Its sounding to me like just using distilled water with some pt nuke and pentosin would be the best bet. for tubing ill just get the green feser tubing. dont know how the pentosin will look in the green tubing but it sounds like the safest formula.

Whatever their website says Feser have always recommended to me that you only use the same colour or clear water in their tubes...
