After I changed my fluid and drove up the road it jumped right up to half way then went back down and has never been up since, I'm not sure why.

It usually sits around the T in temperature mark.

Mine has never gone above the start of the normal sector, so probably about 1/4. I have a 82deg thermostat

:D Prob had a air lock.

I recently asked same question & settled for Nulon long life(3yrs) concentrate @ 50/50 mix.
Apparently if you mix over 60% coolant it starts loosing its affect!
