So I'll be changing my coolant as it's 13 yrs old to my knowledge.

I've read the recommended amount is 5.3L from Honda but I have already ordered only 5L Type 2 from CoxMotorParts.

Can I use 300ml from the one that I drain (given that it is the same colour and looks acceptable)? I really don't want to order again just for 300ml and seeing that there will always be a little left behind an extra 300ml of the old won't hurt I assume?

That is pretty much what I did. It really annoys me the way Honda sell this coolant.
Thanks, Das. I can't see it being an issue and yes, very annoying. Another question, the car is just about to tick over 50k miles but is 13 yrs old. Should I look at the valve clearance do you think? I do not think I have a ticking noise. There is something when idle but it goes away when I increase the RPMs and it's very very faint.
