My coolant has been slowly disappearing, too... Had to put a quart in it yesterday, as the degas bottle was almost completely empty. No signs of puking though, and no steam from the exhaust.

are there signs of puking out the bottle. yellow residue on the bottle. you might want it to be low. if its not puking, dont worry about it. i was told by innovative when i tuned mine to lower the coolant to below the min line. the min line is the new max line.

pressure test the cooling system or better yet if you can pull a vacuum on the system and see if it is leaking. may be an external leak
