If the car is used on short journeys or driven round town a lot then the water vapour that settles on the engine internals will not boil off and you will end up with that sort of mayo round the filler cap! If theres no sign of coolant levels dropping or oil in the coolant i would suggest taking it for a good thrashing on a regular basis to stop this happening! It will also give you a huge grin whenever you do it!

Thanks. I have only driven it a couple times in 2 days for very short trips. Gave it a clean and gave it a good 70mph drive up the motorway, got home and no sign of the gunk.
