I noticed the other day that my rad fan (2.0ts) was kicking in quite a bit. The 30 min car journey on Saturday in heavy traffic (sunny 20C day), it must have kicked in about 4 or 5 times.

How often does your 145s and 146s rad fans kick in on a sunny hot day in regular town traffic?

I forgot to say that the temp is usually just under 90c and then when the fan kicks in the temp guage is just over 90c with it falling back to normal when the fan kicks off.

Yeah that's perfectly fine.

In traffic (and 25-30 degC) my rad will kick in even more regularly (I think - haven't truly focused on that). Agreed with EA, also 90degC is 100%.
