Here in Texas summer heat, I routinely have 4 bars. The base bar and 3 above that. In Temps above 90 in traffic it will add a fifth bar if stop and go. I saw 6 once at about 98 indicated temp. I just plan around rush hour traffic now. Same results with the BMW shop oil and Walmart oil. Switching to Mobile 1 next week for my 12K check.
