Many of them like to level-out just above the top of the tubes....then they're happy! DD

mine would be well over half the tank full. Probably wouldn't be far off what you have .

Mine actually likes to run below the tube tops, rarely goes above about 170 even in the summer. If I fill it over the tubes it just flows out into my recovery bottle while driving.

Not what your asking, but I fill it to the top and let it desire what it needs. It'll let you know. If your running cool-ish don't worry.
