Hmmmm, I don't remember you ever asking me about this, but I might have an
answer for you.  The red stuff is Dexron II ATF, the recomended power
steering fluid for the TQC.  The green stuff is Pentosin, the stuff that
Audi recomendeds for the later cars.  If I were you, I wouldn't go around
mixing the two.  Stick with the red, and avoid seal damage.
