So, I have a question for you. Did you do a before and after test of your coolant system, 10 minute idle, in town driving and highway speeds, if so what were your numbers?

I live in Miami, FL. Temps around 90's now. My truck has ~ 110k miles running without a/c and always premium fuel. Before: Temps were just mid gauge position.
Yesterday, I did a short round trip thru Xpressway and idle for around 20 minutes to make sure it was running properly. I added a bottle of Water Wetter plus mix of Walmart (.64 cents a gallon) distilled water 70% and antifreeze (Autozone Peak something) 25%. No bleeding valve. I can tell my truck runs fresher now. Plus, temp is just under mid gauge without a/c. I am ready for summer. Snorkel prep on the way for hurricane season! Sorry, I have no numbers or scangauges.

You never use the factory temp gauge to judge the engines temp, it hits that mark at 150 degrees and won't move to 230 plus degrees.
