    Coolant tank was empty
    Filled tank and lost 1/4 tank after 20 mile run.
    Large amounts of water spitting from exhaust.

    No temperature gauge on car, there is a hidden menu can access on the clock display and on idle the coolant temp is between 55 and 60.

    No white smoke from exhaust
    No bubbles coming through tank the only bubbles I could see were presumably from the return water stream hitting the water surface.
    No noticeable loss in engine performance.

    No signs of any leaks.
