Default ATE SuperBlue now Federally BANNED



Ive known for years ATE SuperBlue isnt DOT Legal, and thats why I strongly discouraged it always. ATE 200 is the same fluid just not blue.

Beyond the DOT Legality, ATE SuperBlue dyed the reservoir blue, and it stayed blue even after youve flushed the fluid with other fluids

Works fine for me and hasn't stained any of my reservoirs. I still have a couple cans left for the track car. I liked it because if you alternate colors, it's easy to tell when you've flushed the whole system.

Now those blue headlights on the road...

It is just due to the color.

It does look like a fancy energy/sports drink!!

We've got like 500 cans of it!! I wonder what the $^%^#$^$ we are going to do w/ that?

Its always been Off-Road use only. The Memo says its a violation of Fed Law to continue selling it at all.

Think of how many Off-Road only parts are sold on a daily basis. Wonder why now for ATE SuperBlue.

Perhaps I can meet up with you guys at a track day, and you can give me some cans for free. Oh, and don't forget that I owe you some money for something completely unrelated, and I will pay you back the money that I owe you at the same time.
