Sounds like Klotz, I run it in all my sleds mostly because I like the smell of it compared to other Brands.

Maybe the previous owner topped up with klotz, but there was some blue oil left in it.
Red+ Blue=purple

sounds like Arctic cat oil. not the reg. oil. the higher priced one. just checked my new Cat yesterday after i took it for its first ride ( Green Bay got about 4 inches Sat. but is gone today, temps got to 45) and it had purple colored oil from dealer.

should have added to the post above that this was on a new non valved sled. so i don't thinks its the APV oil.
