Yes a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water. I disagree, I'll explain why A 100% antifreeze solution is perfectly acceptable. However you will only get a small increase in protection against overheating or freezing as compared to a 50/50 mixture of anti-freeze and water. By the way, the water doesn't have to be distilled. If your water supply is hard or has some other mineral deposits then you should use soft water. In the near term, the iron content in hard water won't impede the overheating and freezing protection that you get from the antifreeze, but it will extend the life of your cooling system by preventing the iron ions (or calcium ions or whatever mineral is present in the water) from corroding and clogging the coolant passages. It will also allow for a more efficient heat transfer between the hot internal engine block surfaces and the antifreeze itself.
AnswerThe coolant should be totally drained and replaced every 2 years. Use premixed coolant so you don't have to dilute with any water. If you do use concentrated antifreeze, dilute only with DISTILLED water. Make sure you buy either genuine Honda coolant, or silicate-free coolant that is designed for aluminum engines.
You should use the correct antifreeze as listed in your owner's manual. There is 3 types of antifreeze, Ethylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, and HOAT antifreeze. These will be of a different color. Green, orange, yellow and possibly others. Don't rely of the color. Never mix these together. In your Honda, which uses long life antifreeze, either use Honda or use Zerez Asian Vehicle coolant. Avoid universal coolants that claim to meet all specifications. Also mix your antifreeze with distilled water and not tap water. To be absolutely sure just buy Honda Antifreeze and you will know it is the correct coolant. It will cost very little more.
Honda coolant is weird. Honda designed its water pumps around Japanese antifreeze, which is silicate-free. Traditionally, American antifreeze has silicates for corrosion resistance. This, however, will break a Honda water pump. You need either the real Honda Genuine at eleven bucks for a gallon of 50/50 premix, or the "all makes all models" antifreeze at a car parts store. Any other kind will eat the bearings in your water pump. Now let me ask you: if Honda knows they sell millions of cars every year in a place where the antifreeze is hostile to their water pumps, why wouldn't they buy American-antifreeze-compatible water pumps for the cars they sell here?
