Are you sure your water thermostat is ok ?

Hey Andy, I'm new to this GTV ownership stuff but I was surprised at how 'not warm' the heater is. My engine temp rarely goes above 50 degrees. I have poor fuel economy which might also point to a worn/faulty thermostat. What's your engine temp once it's warmed up?

Engine temp should be stable at around 90 degr.C.
Definately a faulty thermostat, needs to be replaced. Also not good for your engine if it doesn't get up to operating temperature.....
