    .......................False alarm guys!! went out today and its reading very hot, around 100 degrees!!
    I'd be happy with 90 degrees when moving, was 100 degrees also when moving or stationary/slow moving traffic. I'd be happy(ish) if the fan was on at 100 in traffic.

    The big question is, can the temp gauge be relied upon ?!!

    Do you have an infra-red temp gauge ( Infrared Thermometer, Digital IR Laser Thermometer Temperature Gun 688209908015 | eBay )
    The above could be used to determine gauge accuracy, and maybe if your rad has a blockage. Handy tool to have.

        Oooh good thinking! I actually have something similar for covid testing... lol! Yes its slow moving , but after running it down motorway it seemed to stay around 100 degrees even over it seemed!!

        Could be guage or blocked rad. Ill try to bleed it then check.. if it persists, ill flush system and check thermostat seating, as i recently fitted this.
