Your heater core is leaking. Maybe not much but enough so you can smell it. Check the passenger side floor. It will show up here. ALSO DONT WASTE TIME WITH STOP LEAK, REPLACE IT. STOP LEAK WILL NOT HELP YOU HERE. ALSO ONE MORE THING, GET A BUNCH OF WINDEX TO CLEAN THE WINDOWS IF IT GETS THAT BAD. IT WILL OMIT A GLAZE ON THE WINDOWS THAT WILL DRIVE YOU NUTS.

What causes your engine to burn antifreeze?

Your car shouldn't "burn" antifreeze. If it actually is "burning" antifreeze then chances are you have a blown/leaking head gasket or possibly a cracked engine block which allows antifreeze to enter the combustion chambers. If your antifreeze is just disappearing then it is probably leaking out from somewhere. Possible leak areas to check out would be the radiator hoses, heater hoses, radiator, water pump, and the heater core. Most of the time if the heater core is leaking you'll be able to smell the antifreeze inside the car while the engine is running and the heater is on.
