This car normally runs with a temperature guage reading around 170 - 180 degrees. The high speed running pushed it up to the 190 mark. We stopped for fuel and the temp increased to 212 as we were stopped, but it dropped down to 190 once on the move again. It stayed there quite happily until we hit stop go traffic for the last 40 miles. At one point I switched the engine off and saw the guage reading climb to peg at 130,but once I fired the engine up it dropped to 212 and once on the move again came down to 190 ish, where it stayed till we reached our destination.
We got a great welcome when we arrived at Aldercarr Hall, our B&B for the week. Because we were staying a while we got upgraded to a suite which is great as I'm an early riser and the lounge area means I can get up without disturbing she who must be obeyed.
