Lost 400ml of coolant in 8 months

Recommended Posts

Topped up to in between min and max when cold the couple of times I've topped up.... I only do short mileage 2.5 mile commute every weekday.... Is 400ml over 8 months acceptable coolant loss with those short drives?

Shouldn't be using any but I've noticed if I fill mine when cold it always seems to lose some till it finds its level just above the min mark. It never goes below min so I think it's pushing the extra out the over flow when hot. I've left mine months now and it's still at the same level.

I fill it cold to midway, never seen excess coming out of an overflow.... When it's hot the level is still about 35mm below the max level anyway.... I must check where the overflow is
