Water pump, its behind the cam cover so you can't see it. Get a pressure test done, then you'll find where its going. Also get the cap tested in case its given up the ghost.

You do remember to bleed it each time you fill it up.

Mine was using a L of water every tank of petrol. No smoke, no power loss, good idle, clean(ish) oil.

Changed the HG and it was all good.

Head gaskets get neglected just like valve stem seals do.
Every one maybe presumes or hopes it's already been done by someone else or these things last forever.;)
