On cool days both my BN2 and BJ8 will run at 160F or less on the 
highway, but display the usual heating behavior in stop-and-go traffic.  
Both have tested thermostats.  I have no explanation.

Still making my way home from Monterey and encountering rain and some snow at high altitudes. The temp gauge is dropping down to 120 at speed. Not sure what temp thermostat I am running. The car is a BN6 with the temp sensor in the top of the rad so I would suspect that the thermostat is closed and not circulating through the rad and while the rad is cooling down the engine temp should be higher?
