EOT vs ECT vs Air Temp

It has been cold since I got my edge. When it was in the 20s I was seeing like 182ECT and 188EOT(delta 6). Has been like 43 out lately I get 184ECT and 188EOT(delta 4) with max at 188ECT and 192EOT(delta 4). Should I worry?

I typically run 191/200 ECT to EOT and just towed my boat and a couple thousand pounds of other crap across the country with no issues. Keep an eye on your ECT as that is a tab bit low for what it's supposed to run (191'ish) and so your t-stat might be showing signs of aging. I'm not a mechanic but an avid researcher and I had the same issue. 182-184 is still within spec. I was running 176-179 when I finally changed mine out when I put in ELC.

Those numbers are right where they should be in 30-40 degree weather

Towed for the first time since I got my Insight CS. Weight slip was only 14600 truck and dump trailer. ECT was 188 and EOT was 192 the whole time. Temp was 39. Its easy to see though how the previous owner blew the HGs with no gauges. With a load the boost can easily spend all day over 25psi. I dont constantly run it like that. Without a gauge though one would not know.
