On my Paseo (its different for every car) the temperature should never go beyond 201. That is the temperature the fan is supposed to kick on at. The thermostat temperature is what the car normally runs at. In my case I just put in a 192 degree thermostat. At highway speeds I should be right around 192 then as you don't use a fan on the highway.

The gauge on the car is incredibly inaccurate. I can't tell a difference between 180 and 210 on it.
