    ye it should have g12+

    Original G12 and the normal green stuff dont mix well, and can often turn to brown sludgy mess. Newer G12+ is better in this respect.

    I'd give the radiator a flush and drain it all well down before refilling it, and you should be fine.

    PAS Fluid can be had from most factors. Stuff i got was called Comma CHF11S
