Temperature Gauge Problem

08 December 2008 - 05:45 PM

Hi, new to this forum, can anyone help?

I recently bought a 56 plate focus 1.8 diesel estate. My husband noticed the temperature gauge was staying pretty low during normal driving. Around the 60 mark. The temperature seemed to go up and down depending how fast he was driving. But never reaching the 12 o'clock position.

As a result of this, he thinks I'm not getting the fuel economy I should be. Only getting about 40mpg.

The dealer has said there is nothing wrong with it, but my husband doesn't think thats right. Before he goes down there and shouts at people, any advice would be much appreciated!
