Default Another Honda Coolant Question - Thanks

I previously posted regarding using genuine Honda coolant on a 98 Civic
LX. Thanks for the great answers..

I took off the tank cap and noticed GREEN coolant in it.

Is genuine Honda coolant green or is it the wrong kind in there..

Thanks,

Rich

Genuine Honda antifreeze was a clear dark green for the longest time. They
recently switched to a clear dark blue as of last year. I don't know if
that's US and Canada, or just Canada.

It was green in the US also. The factory coolant in my '95 Integra, '96
Odyssey and 2000 TL was all green.

California (often the leader in such things) may have legislated or
prohibited the use of certain chemicals, and the substituted formulation
may have been colored differently to distinguish it from the old.
