Temperature at these locations is being recorded during daily driving activities, primarily a morning and afternoon commute lasting approximately 30 minutes.

Results from the Morning drive are shown in the chart below:

The results from the afternoon drive are shown on the next chart below:

Temperature at the filter and grill inlet becomes surprisingly high during slow speed and stopped conditions.  Even when driving the filter location remains higher than the grill inlet location.
