None. If you are sure that it is burning coolant and not just condensation from the exhaust (cold weather) then it is either a blow gasket, cracked head or cracked block. Remove the radiator cap when the engine is cold, run the car to warm it up and look in the rad for bubbles. If you see bubbles, then the air from the cylinder is pressurising into the coolant system and you can be 99% sure that you have one of the problems I mentioned above.
