Thanks for the update! I was wondering what would happen if you sprayed too much. Keep us informed.

This week MPG 20.50 with DO 5 nozzle so it is still climbing still had 7" of washer fluid after 3 weeks of driving. On Friday I went & picked up my tractor 120 mile round trip trailer empty 1500 lbs. tractor 5000-5500 somewhere in that ballpark I have never been on the scales with it so I will have some towing mileage next week.
Outside Temp 98 degrees, Towing empty trailer EGT's speed 65-70 MPH flat ground 750-850, incline 850-950, hammer down on a incline 1113, Coolant Temp 183.2.
With Tractor On-board EGT's speed 65-70 MPH flat ground 750-900, incline 900-1000, hammer down on a incline 1090, Coolant Temp 186.8-188.6.
And an add plus I wanted to fill the Water Methanol tank before I headed out so stopped at dollar general picked up 3 gallons of distilled water capped off the tank it held 2-1/2 gallons.
I am very impressed with running water methanol injection & the fact that my EGT's stayed cooler with the pedal on the floor with the tractor on the trailer.

Those are pretty decent numbers! Surprising how a little water keeps the EGTs down!

What surprised me is my daily drive everyday my coolant temp is 186.8 & with just the trailer on it was spaying almost the hole 60 mile trip the coolant temp was 183.2 it was really cooling the head down. I still don't understand the stant thermostat yet is says 190 on the bottom of the thermostat but it opens at 185 my old cummins thermostat opened at 190 I just hate to give 73 dollars for it so I went with the stant for 25. Does stant sell a 195 degree thermostat for an 2001 I did some searches but could find one I was thinking if the 190 opened at 185 the 195 would open at 190 which really quiets the motor down and may help the mileage as well.

I am not sure about the 195* stat, but I have been told that Cummins is the best place to go for one that works like you would think. Maybe someone else with more info will chime in?

Thanks
I get a lot of parts from the local Cummins dealer they are so much cheaper in price but that thermostat is not one of those items. I may flush and replace the coolant this summer and bite the bullet and pick up a Cummins thermostat.

Have a Great Day!

I've been using NAPA thermostats for ever. Never had a issue just change the thermostat every time you change coolant. Also you can use a 200*F thermostat as well in these trucks.

Thanks Mopar1973man

It's just to hot here to run a 200 degree thermostat Winter temps are in the 50's Summer temps are at 100 degrees and it has been 98 here for the last 2 weeks and I still can't get my temps above 185 without pulling a loaded trailer. I guess I'm going the have to go back to the Cummins thermostat.

Thanks again!

Have a Great Day!

I would not call that too hot. You are having a hard time getting 185* unless you are working it. These engines really like internal heat!
