I´ve been using a 16lb cap until recently when I thought I´d try a 17lber.
No good reason, just to see what effects it has.
Drove the car into town to the upholsterer, about ten minutes, water temp reached 180ºF.
After awhile I came out to the car and an old guy was looking at it,
wanting to know what it was.
Showed him the interior and when I opened the hood I immediately noticed the overflow tank was right down to empty.
The heated engine had sucked water in rather than it expand out when hot.

Is this something I should expect ?
