I have two 8G cars, a 2010 1.8 petrol and 2011 FN2 CTR.

The 1.8 is coming up for 10 years old when a coolant change is required according to service schedule.
The current coolant is original Honda blue/green coloured stuff as far as I know.
Would any coolant of the correct type for the engine be okay rather than the "real" Honda stuff?

CTR will need a change in 2021 so would the same stuff be right for that?

There isnt a comparable coolant that I know of, which is blooming annoying tbh. Whatever you do do not back flush the system because all you can buy is pre mixed Honda coolant, they don't sell concentrated.

Also meant to ask about the life span of the aux belt.

Both cars have only just passed the 50K mile mark and the belts look fine.
