Default Did Prestone stop making green antifreeze?

I can't find it anywhere! I looked at four stores looking for Prestone Long Life (green) antifreeze as was suggested on here, and all any of them had from Prestone were the Dex (I know better) types and the pre-diluted yellow, straight yellow, and mix with any color yellow. In the meantime I had to top off with yellow MWAC and I hope there'* nothing as devestating about it as there is with the Dex...

Anybody have any ideas?

I will probably be getting a full system flush at or just after the beginning of this summer once I get some money (full-time student), so hopefully if there is something wrong with the stuff it won't have time to damage anything

EDIT: I also diluted the yellow at least 50-50, probably a little more with distilled water so hopefully that will help as well? I was just uncomfortable not putting green in it but I looked pretty much everywhere in this town (didn't want to drive it TOO much, with hardly anything but some water in the overflow tank, and I know water is good, but this is WV and it DOES freeze, so i wanted to find something decent before nightfall as snow is a possibility next week)

I use the straight yellow and dilute it myself.. It actually looks like the lime green you are used to when you get it out of the jug.
