    91 is fine, the rad fans kick in at 92, which is most likely what was happening. Remember if you are worried about the temp you can always turn the heater up to hot, turn the fan on to 4, open the windows, and turn the dial to the setting that pumps air out the side vents. Ok it will be uncomfortable for a few minutes but will greatly reduce the engine temp and save the gasket etc.
