Now that you are getting closer to the Fall winter and its already cooling off you may want to stick with the 195F for the winter months.... Some have ran the 180F and been happy with it... I have heard a few that stated that the heating ability or effiency was reduced somewhat by the 180F T-stat...

And again, it really depends on where you are and how cold it gets... You do want the engine to get warm enough to burn off the moisture that develops in the crankcase...

I reccomend a 195, at least for the winter
