I chased a similar mystery on my sedan, the tank level kept dropping at
a very slow rate with no sign anywhere of a leak.
I eventually spotted a small puddle below the afterrun pump. I swapped
in a copper elbow (conveniently leftover from the day the avant peed all
over the parking lot at work) and no more dropping coolant level.
