Bottom line up front: Will O'Reilly's 1 Gallon Yellow OAT Antifreeze work in a 2009 Honda Civic 1.8L?

The long version:

I am about to change the coolant out in my 2009 Honda Civic 1.8L. I cannot find any references that indicate what fluids I can use in the Civic except genuine Honda fluids, which are not readily available at my location. Oriley's has one that their website says is a match. However, I'm hesitant to trust the website. Also, I see it is concentrate. Can I just pour the fluid then a proportional amount of distilled water in the radiator and it will naturally mix on its own?

Here is the link:

You might look at the Pentofrost lines of antifreeze for your vehicle. They are more specific to vehicle type and are still about $10/gal at Autozone.

Id use the pentofrost concentrate. Once I know there was only water in the system Id fill the correct ratio of antifreeze into the system and top off with water. It will mix in the engine

I wouldn't use O'R Dexclone with 2eha in a Honda. Right now as noted previously, Walmart has Valvoline Asian Vehicle, in Honda matching blue tint for ~$12/gal. It's the same as Zerex Asian Formula, just sold at WM.

Readily available, Asian PHOAT so matches Honda oem AF type chemistry. Link is to VAV red/pink tint, however most WM stores now stock the for Honda blue tint AF.

EDIT Just noticed comment above about Pentofrost at AZ and forgot about that deal. If you can find the A3 still in stock for $10/gal, that looks best value now.
