    If you need to add coolant there is a leak. Fix it.

    There are coolants formulated as "univeral top-up" products suited for what you want. So, you can either use Subaru coolant, something that says specifically "suited for topping up absolutely anything" or if the quantity is low, just use distilled water.

    Then just use distilled water; any difference in coolant concentration will not be significant since you are likely adding less than a few hundred ml. It's available at grocers and it's cheap; just make sure it's distilled.
