If yours is a bosch engine, the coolant that is most likely in it is dexcool. If yours is a gems engine, it should be using green oat. You can flush the coolant completely out of there and use w/e you would like. I personally prefer the green stuff.

you'll be fine. just make sure it's okay for Alum engines...which pretty much all of them are now.

Not sure if things are different in UK, but my Bosch uses OAT coolant which is an orangey/pink colour.

Also to the best of my knowledge Dex-cool is OAT. The green stuff is the older type normally used in GEMS engines.
