Mine sits bang on halfway during normal driving, and will move fractionally higher when in traffic before the fans kick in!

They are not the most accurate in the world, my sapph one sometimes reads just at the bottom of the red, but runs normal temp, good old ford guages.

Replace the sender in the head, mine was reading below NORM but SECS was always spot on, replaced the sender and now sits bag in the middle
