oil temps

I just installed a VDO-310012 oil temp gauge 120-300 degree range ,and temp senser is a yr old.
I just compleated a 600 +mile trip to the Indy fall color run, to and from with a very spirited 50 mile run in the middle of it .
Outside,temps in the low to high 60 degree range , never went over 190, speeds in the 80 to 90 range, on the drive to and from. needless to say i was very pleased.
My stock gauge was always very close to the red line. This was a good investment for just the peace of mind.
My 914 is a 1.7 very good condition,i.e.compresssion, single 2-blr. carb,oil is Mobil -1 , 15-50 .
Hope this is a help .
Dave
