    Coolent level problem??

    Hi all, just recently I think my cars using quite a bit of coolent. I got the warning light on about 2 weeks ago so topped up to the bit where the top and bottom of the bottle meet and just checked it again as I've got drive on the mway soon and it's half way on the bottom part of the tank? Is this right am I over filling underfilling?
