Shed preserver - that isn't a horrible colour!

Can anybody recommend a decent wood preserver for a new shed. The shed is made with treated wood, which is a nice natural light brown colour. I want to keep this colour as close as possible, but have now bought 3 (!) different tins of coloured preserver that look nice on the label, but in reality once you open them and do a test piece, do not look like natural wood colours at all.

One option is to use a clear preserver, but I am worried that this will not keep the current colour and over time the wood will go grey.

Basically just looking for a way to keep the shed looking as it does now, for a long as possible.

Many thanks in advance

I believe Sadolin does some conventional colours in among the red cedars, and greys.
