Default No Coolant?

The other day I was taking my radiator fans out of my car when I spilled some coolant by accidentaly detaching the hose leading into the radiator. I probably only spilled 1 cup of coolant and my coolant tank was only slightly below the fill line after running my car for a few hours. I just opened up my hood and I have barely any coolant left. My car hasn't been running hot, but I know I need to add some more. Can I just top it off? What kind of coolant should I use?

you can stop by your dealer and pick up some subaru coolant, or just get some prestone or texaco...GREEN coolant and top it off, its not pre mixed make sure you mix it with water 50/50

Just a note -- you should use distilled or deionized water when mixing coolant.
