where do you fill your coolant too?

A lot of discussion about overflow on the degas bottle. Where are you guys filling to? My truck cold it sits below the cold fill line, but at regular operation temp is right between the lines... Thats just how it came from ford, wondering if i should add more?? :

should be at the cold line when cold, but a hair or two under isn't going to hurt anything.

Mine sits an inch below the minimum line when it's been sitting for a while and has cooled off. When at operating temperatures it sits right between the minimum and maximum line. I asked my Ford diesel tech and he told me that it was normal.
