went to check my power steering fluid before going for a drive to adelaide and noticed it was basically completely empty, last time i checked it would have been about 2 months ago. i cant see anywhere it would be leaking or would it have like evaporated and is normal since been driving to adelaide a fair bit in these warmer months

If no oil is visible leaking on the outside, then it is possible that it is leaking into the rack boots.
Have a look for excessive oil sweating at the rack boot's zip ties and clamps.

Check your power steering pressure sensor.

When they leak, it is very visible, and it fills the wiring harness up with oil too.

I reckon it's filling the rack boots up....seen it before many times, and not just on Falcons either.
