Normal EOT range?

I am beginning to think my tstat is bad, so having a problem assessing the EOT.

So, what would be considered normal EOT cruising at 65, empty, with ambient of around 30*F?

My ECT wont' go above around 184 for longer than a few seconds at a time, which is why I think it is bad. It was replaced this summer when I did a coolant flush/swap.

ECT runs around 184 or so. I am just trying to figure if my oil cooler is ok, that is why I am wondering what would be considered normal EOT, without using the delta.

Your stat is bad, you will get much fast heating and better fuel economy with a new one. Your oil cooler will be possibly the same differencial no mather what is the water temperature, because we are talking of diferential through the cooler. I doubt the flow is any diferent in the cooler with cooler water. Mine ranges from 5 to 8 max at 10 and that is towing my trailer in the signiture, with a new cooler and thermostat at 65 MPH. New thermostat coolant temperature normal is at 191/193F

Kinda what I thought, the delta should be the same regardless of the ect. Even with a bad tstat, then the eot should stay within 10 of it, right?
