The minimum mark is where we are supose to keep it. My wife's excursion has a sticker on the degass bottle showing that the minimum mark is the full mark.

I have been watching mine as well... I think it dumps on bouncy roads or something, and the stable level is at the minimum mark...

I do not add any, and it has not moved now in a couple thousand kms... As it turns out from talking to others, some just seem to throw out the coolant above the min. level in some trucks... all OK

Has any of it been puking out of the cap(milky residue around the bottle)? If it stays at the Min level you should be Ok. If it keeps going you need to get it checked out for the EGR cooler/headgaskets. My bottle would run dry on some longer trips and I just kept refilling till I got it fixed...never once ran hot.
