Higher temps and better oil will get you more MPG too..... if that makes a difference.

I was running a 160 thermostat for the summer. But on cool nights it would run in the 170's. I bumped up to the a 180 thermostat to make sure the oil would have efficient heat to burn off condensation and sludge......

Yes.......the oil is most likely 40 to 50 degrees warmer than the engine coolant. Not a problem.....oil needs to be in that range to properly lubricate the engine. It also helps eliminate condensation from the oil.
WHY are you concerned ?

If I am running a 180 thermostat. Most likely the engine oil is hotter than 180????
