I generally take temps from inside the can, thru ventholes
Outside can temps vary too much, from my experience

But who cares about the temp of an ice cube or coffee. What matters is accurate temp of the motor so again, boil an old can and check it.
Will do... I just found this information interesting to the settings...

Yes I do that, but when the temp gauge is not reading correctly it really does not matter to what location you take the temp from... My gauge read via the vent hole 289, and used another temp gauge (Exergen) it was 194... Same spot with in 1 second... So I trying to figure out how to make this freaking temp gauge read a correct temp.

Does the gauge read a normal ear temp of 98f ?
I've heard this is an excellent way of determining accuracy, as it is a consistent temp

Yep. It only has a problem at high temps like 150 and above.

Are you just temping electric motors? If so set it at 77 and just figure in a +/- of maybe 5 deg. Very accurate for our sport.
