[DML] Re: Need advise

My 2 cents:

The stainless steel tank, which had a higher temperature reading, was
the better tank in your situation.  Because more heat was conducted
away from the coolant, therefore the higher temperature reading on the
stainless steel tank.

Another variable that should be considered is the radiator efficiency.
 If radiators from both vehicles perform identically and the coolant
flow rate and chemistry are the same, then the stainless steel tank
definitely is a better thermal conductor.  Without the other pieces of
data, it's difficult to determine which one is better.

Maybe Toby can comment on this.
