During my commute, I burn

During my commute, I burn about 0.4 gallons in just less than an hour. It takes about 10 minutes before I get up to operating temp. Once the thermostat opens, since I guess there is about twice as much coolant in the radiator, it would take another 2o minute to heat the whole system to 192F. That leaves about 25 minutes at 0.4 GPH burn rate to cause an overheating condition.

No problems yet.

I have the SuperMID M-1 only. The T-1, which I had on the Prius monitors ECT, AIT among other things. I didn't think it was worth another $150 for the T-1 in the del sol.

xB temps

I usually run about 182-184 with the peak at 192 but yesterday I got into some city traffic and heard the radiator fan turn on for the first time ever at 205 degrees.

that is crazy setup. Since I

that is crazy setup. Since I live where the weather is most of the time warm I run the risk of overheating my car.

JanGeo perhaps you need a higher bar radiator cap??? Due to my 1.2 my fans turn on very rare now. With a .9 they used to turn a lot in city driving.
