Those graphs speak volumes.
Proves that those who think coolant temps above 90C is overheating are still living in the flathead V8 era. Engines that run cold are not efficient.
On some modern day cars, like the current gen ND Miata and its twin Fiat 124, the temp gauge doesn't even start to register until 100C. And in the case of the Fiat, that is a car which uses a dinosaur tech engine (iron block, port injection, etc.).
