Re: [DML] Re: Need advise


The difference in temperature was not caused by actual temperature. It was a 
reading error. Stainless steel has different emissivity when compared to 
aluminum or plastic. That might cause a large error in reading when using an 
infrared thermometer. To accurately measure the temperature of such 
different materials using one of those thermometers you can cover the 
surface with masking tape and then take the reading.
Another possibility is that one car was low on coolant and the bottle was 
just empty and that's why it stayed cooler.
