On the first equation, it calls for an undefined C, T, and mV, two of which (C and mV) I input from sensor specs using an example temperature (C) of 10 degrees and corresponding (mV) of 980. The second equation mentions solving for T, so I went on with it using the same 980 mV. I got T=36 using my spreadsheet and T=1380.91 using the online equation site. I remember now why I hated algebra class so much.

I saved both equations as JPGs I'll attach.

I'm not sure how I missed it, but the TMP 36 appears to do everything I need it to do w/o all the complex math. The site says accuracy drops off above 125C, but I doubt my oil will hit 257F.
