I am thinking, however, that temps like that might not be healthy for the PE tubing; and the last thing I want to do is end up with part of it softening/coming apart and jammed up in my pan or elsewhere.
Thoughts experience on temp?
I warmed my engine up to operating temp and used the Mityvac right away. No problems at all and the tubing showed absolutely no signs of softening. I do believe the hot oil temp was factored into the material design based on it's intended use.
