That is exactly the same VDO gauge I have in my car with a stock sensor.
Reads around 80 PSI at cold start (at idle)
Reads around 35-45 PSI when hot (at idle) depending on ambient temperature.
Reads around 60-70 PSI when hot (at speed) depending on ambient temperature.

My background and profession is Steam Boilers, so all my gauges (and brain) are calibrated in PSI.
