I realize this problem has been solved, but I would offer my experience. Not only was I loosing coolant, but the bleed pipe at the right of the temperature block was blowing out the cap. It was suggested that the problem was the rear seal leaking. This wasn't the problem, but I solved it after buying a new cap for the reservoir (the second before it was solved) and also replacing the temperature gauge as the bleed pipe broke at a later date. Since then there has been no loss of coolant and the temp has remained satisfactory, even when towing.
