Have you considered adding an oil temperature gauge, y'know, for science?
Yep, I have. I'm not exactly sure where I'd put it though. If you're going to nerd out, you'd like one in the pan and then after the heater to see how much its really doing.

I do like Oil Pan's method of using a pressure gauge to monitor things too. Its straight forward and tells you when the oil is thinning out.
