Honda Type 2 50/50 Coolant - where to get?

My coolant level when cold is at the min line while at hot it gets like 1 inch above the min line. Should I top it off to the max?

Is there any place online to buy this stuff or should I just get it at the Honda dealer? How much should I be expected to pay for a gallon of the Honda pre mix coolant at the dealer?

expect to pay about $10 or so for each gallon of the honda coolant. Its not cheap, but it is already premixed.

$10 sounds like a fair price from Honda (sort of) I paid $17 for a gallon of Toyota OEM fluid. I would stick with Honda brand.

The level will jump around a lot depending on outside temps.

I always check mine when hot and top it to the full level.

I just went to the dealer and paid 14.99 + tax for a gallon.

Anyone know what the shelf life of this stuff is?

I dont think there is a shelf life expectancy for the coolant. If it can sit in a car for 100,000 miles with normal driving, I am sure it can sit on the shelf for a few years or longer.
