    Leave the car and look for fluid leaks several hours later (overnight is easiest)
    You may need to remove the tray in order to complete the inspection

    What sort of volume of consumption?

    Even when parked up after a journey there should be some fluid loss
    Sounds like it is running on to the tray and sitting there
    Equally, next time look at the offside tyre and inspect for fluid
