    My original Bosch coil is 0.40 ohms.

    I measure real low resistance by pumping 1.00 amps into the resistance and measuring the voltage over the resistance. Hence I read 0.40 volts when I do that.

    I've not done any long distance driving but just the past few days have almost burnt a half tank of gas idling in my garage testing the temp gauge sensor. No problem with the ignition.

    You will get a smoother idle running the mixture rich. But then you get bad MPG, smelly exhaust, damaged CAT. Is that smooth idle really that important?

    Ran the new absolute temperature test starting cold and slowly heating the sensor by turning the hot plate on and off for very short times. Hence the change in temps was much slower. I still think...

    I did a new absolute temperature check. Not any big change.

    260 deg. on gauge = 243 deg. F on sensor
    7/8 deg. on gauge = 234 deg. F on sensor
    3/4 deg. on gauge = 224 deg. F on sensor
    5/8 deg....

    It's more like a 1/4 turn to go from one extreme dwell reading (10 deg) to the other (85 deg.). I have not test it to engine stall.

    That number is saying your mixture is pretty far off. The ECU has maxed out it's adjustment range. Move your mixture screw a little bit one way or the other and see if that number changes.
