    If it's not too low then yeah just water will do. If it's quite low then you should have some anti-freeze in it.

    There are types of antifreeze though, you cannot mix them as over time it will turn to a jelly type substance. If it is a red/pink colour then thats the new stuff - maybe advisable to get a top up bottle from Vauxhall.
