rx4 hot rear diff

I have drained diff oil which was black and smelt burnt. Replaced with new oil and molyslip additive.
Smell has now gone and no strnage noises heard from diff
(slight whine @ 50mph).
Diff still apppears to me to get hot.
Frightened to drive to far in case oil overheats again.
Can anyone tell me how hot there diff gets after 15 mile trip ??
