Flush it all out and put some good ec-1 rated ELC from fleetrite, rotella, cat etc. Most ELCs are Red.

Yea, return the green. It was Yellow (Gold really) and you don't want to put the silica based green in it now...

Tubular's giving you good advice, ELC is what you want to flush & replace it with

If you are going to change coolant color (type) you must flush out the old. DO NOT mix color/types!! if you are going through the trouble of flushing might as well put the good stuff in there! ELC!
