Thats a good one there desert dog! Actually I live in North Pole Alaska. by all accounts its been around -48 F here the last couple of days but my guage only says -40. I was just questioning if it was just off that far or was it at its limit? Thanks

depending where the temp prob is at on the vehicle will determin how accurate the gage will be ..

meaning if the brob is on the front grill / bumper area you will pick up some engine heat depending on wind direction and so forth..

the mirror mounted ones are best at least while moving

Way to help out, DD! And that was a good question. Maybe it does only go to -40!

40- or 48- degrees And your worried about accuracy ? Your kiddin right ? Man any time it's below 48+ degrees it's time for long Johns . Seriously ,if you can get that truck to still turn over and start ? Head south Bro before you freeze y'alls thingy off.
