My temp gauge is right there, as well. 1st thick bar to 1/2 way.
I was just wondering waht the two small "tick marks" past 1/2way might
indicate and thought my enginge might be running cool.
I'm getting crummy mileage but haven't really spent time analyzing it.

Ever since I did the T-stat, "normal" has been PEGGED right at the first
"thick" bar (which I guess is the second bar) in the city and on the
highway and everywhere else. It goes up a bit when sitting in traffic
but never beyond half. I would say it runs 90% on the first thick bar.
Before the T-stat, it ran always on the highway on cold sometimes almost
never coming up beyond the first bar; and only hitting the first thick
bar in the city.
I cannot explain it. All I know is post T-stat replacement and addition
of the correct blue coolant, my engine temp's been pegged at the first
big bar and I've been getting great mileage...PLUS my afterrun system is
in sync (which is the most important reason I messed with the T-State in
the first place)
That's about all for observations.
