It's hard to read the guage (they calibrate it so the useful range
is way down at the bottom), but my '89 100Q never seems to get past
about 90C (194F), and certainly never to 120C (248F). Is my guage busted.
It never really occured to me that this was a problem, just that the
guage is designed stupidly.
