    I work at advance Auto, the the temp setting on the t-stat we list as OEM is 186*. Earlier I mentioned that you will run rich with a colder t-stat(especially if you have no tune or are in a colder area), this is because you engine thinks it is supposed to be within a set temp range and it will dump gas to try to bring engine temps up. It will never reach a closed operating loop with a t-stat that is too cold.

    thanks for all of your help. I dont think i'll have much of a problem in the winter months with fuel efficency since the car will be sitting in the garage collecting dust. It wont see the road again untill next spring. Of course unless we have a winter like the past where it was 60 degrees in december.

    Thanks again
