Default oil pressure question

2011 hemi sport CC. Stock. Where should the oil pressure gauge be just cruising at 65 mph, cruise set, eco on? Mine is sitting just below the 3/4 line. Truck is 2 months new to me so feedback would be great. thanks

That's where mine is. The only time it will go over the 3/4 mark is if I floor it when has not warmed up. Not a good thing to do anyway.

Yes that sounds about right. If you look at your vehicle info on the EVIC, you should read somewhere around 50-54psi for oil pressure with your needle in the just below 3/4 mark. At idle and warmed up after a long drive like you did, you will probably see oil pressure at 24-26psi with needle just around half or less. I hook up my tuner to verify numbers to be of equal value on pressures and temps.
