White. Stray coolant and oil are readily seen.

Re: What is the best Color for an Engine?

I voted PINK ... same benefits of white and orange only more fun! Why be so serious about it... give ya a good conversation piece with others. Why be boring?

Pink would be nice, but white the logical choice.

Re: What is the best Color for an Engine?

The OP must be a Yanmar owner as he has omitted green from the poll. I must admit Volvo green is a bit wishy washy but what's wrong with either Lister Green or British Racing Green? It took the curse off my Volvo....

Re: What is the best Color for an Engine?

I like originality so would go with whatever the manufacturer used in the first place.
