They may have changed their packing. They make 3 different mixes of fuel. I used to run the Trinity Monster Horsepower fuel (was in a white colored bottle) and it was a light purple color. Now it appears they put it in a clear bottle. They also make a high end Platinum blend that appears to be red in color and they make a RTR monster truck blend that I'm not sure what color that is...looks dark blue or greenish color in pics.

Default Byrons

Ditch that purple koolaide and run Byrons 30%. I used to run trinity monster and now I run byrons, what a difference! It runs little cooler and doesnt have as much oil in it so it doesnt gunk up your crankcase. my engine guy (Monty Houston ) turned me on to it. I was impressed he first tank Ii ran, It had more pop and much better top end.
