there is no problem...as long as it's ethylene glycol and not tap water...you'll be alright...congrats on the maintenance, btw~

Mixing them really does not create any serious problems, OTHER than the coolant looses it's extended life properties. So it will need to be treated as conventional "green" coolant as far as service intervals are concerned.
