Running Hot!

I ran 15 gallons of distilled water through before adding 3.5 gallons of cat ec-1. Weird... I have nearly NO temp differentiation between ECT/EOT now but the engine is running way hotter with the cat coolant. Before it wouldn't top 198 EOT but It got to 208 today.... it is also like 85 degree today though...

Wasn't uncommon to see 213 EOT and 210 Coolant. Does this mean my thermostat's not functioning of maybe I did add enough EC1 concentrate (put in nearly 4 gallons)?

Love that delta though!

nope, didn't touch the t-stat. My tstat seems to kick in around an ECT of 188 then slowly climbs if I'm in stop and go traffic.
