It's hard to tell from the picture, but for the most part, my needle location is a hair higher than one click below half way. This is at night with ambient display reading 58 degrees outside after a 50 mile drive and I filled up with gas, then parked. Humidity - 45%, near sea level.
I was wondering what the guage looks like on everyone's car on average?
The outside temp. in my area ranges with lows of 55F and highs of 80F. Pretty much stable needle position.
I don't think i've ever made the needle go half way or hotter than half way. It seems like its always a fraction of a click below the half way point. Usually the needle is "touching" the one click below mark, but not centered over it.
