That is better, no more guessing. Yeah that is normal, I would call that 2/5. The only time I had a gauge go up to 1/2 is when it started overheating (few minutes later it was in the red). The fuel/coolant temp gauges aren't very accurate anyway, just a guide for the driver to know if it's cold, just right or overheating. I noticed the gauge needle starts moving around 130-140 degrees F.this is the picture of my gauge when it work for 30 minutes, but I run it in 2speed for 10 minutes, i was driving a little faster just to see if temp will go a little hyer, with normal driving temp. is lover then here on picture, what do you think??
