    Adam only refills his supply every 3-4 months? Lucky him. I work as a cnc machine operator, making plaques. We've 18 machines, and we probably go through 200 gallons of the mixed coolant every week or two. Losses come from evaporation, coolant being sprayed out of the machine, or most commonly, machines being over filled because they were filled while running, or started to foam up. Then again, we have 18 machines running 24/6. By Sunday, they've all finished their runs (most likely) and automatically turned off.
