I believe you may need to run the truck alittle longer if it was only an 8 mile road. something like 30-40 minutes at 65 to get a clearer picture of your trucks deltas....

I second the Tstat needs to be replaced before you can get an actual read. make sure the truck is fully up to operating temp and check at 65mph after running for 5 or 10 minutes.

I got a brand new t-stat a while ago......Let's just say motorcraft's quality control isn't exactly that great....Me, you and others get new T-stats that seem to open at 184 to 188....I've been told you can modify them to the right spot with small shims/washers...Will try it some day....

So before you go changing it out just to possibly get the same results, the real question is does the delta range remain the same with the lower temps or will the oil heat up more regardless after so long.

I put a new t/stat and oil cooler in this week and mine run ect 188-190, eot 194-196 after its good a warm. You could replace the t/stat but I would get it out and drive it for a while first.
