Default i need help with anti-freeze

Hey all, im in need of some anti-freeze coolant. The nearest honda dealership is 30mi. away. My reservoir tank next to my battery doesn't even show the min. line. But is like 3" below the min. line. Can i use another kind of anti-freeze? It recommends honda genuine, what would you recommend?

95' Honda Accord EX 4cyl. V-TEC Auto trans.

If it's a '95, then I hope this isn't the first time it's ever been changed. The important thing is not mixing types. So if you don't really know what's in there now, it's good to drain, rinse, rinse again until it's clear, then fill. When you get rid of all the old stuff, then you can use any good stuff.

The anti-freeze is always ethene glycol, that's OK. But it's the anti-corrosion package that's different. And they don't always play nicely together.
