My S/C Stato sits on 1/4 and will get up to 1/2 in heavy traffic or hot days before the thermo's kick in but never goes over half!
Your safe:thumbsup:

the VS gauges are very active in comparison to other models. have a look at the fuel gauge next time you put your foot down ;) quite amusing
as stated above, provided bthe car doesn't go over halfway when idling for a short period, it should be ok. maccas is murder on mine :( mine will creep up even higher than half, still haven't diagnosed the problem...
urs sounds all good tho mate
