Default Antifreeze / Coolant

Now this is an embarrasing question how much and what type antifreeze is needed in a B16a2 engine. I have just spoken to my local Honda dealer and they did not know and I work in a parts dept and nobody seems to do the info any more.

Pretty safe with an off-the-shelf brand, and 50/50 mix

As the system is empty I thought it would be safe to use normal stuff but since I work in an ex Rover dealer I know the damage done to K Series when the wrong type of antifreeze is used.
