Post Christmas cash famine has meant that my 50 mile round trip to work has been spent at a wallet friendly 60 mph witht he cruuuz on - basically I have been maximising fuel economy - 47.8mpg on the last tank - beter than the economy meter was predicting however Miss Daisy driving probably hasn't got the coolant to temperature - sound far fetched - not really - The company I used to work for supplied the first Focus and Mondeo TDCi's with the thermostat and housing assemblies - and these cars never warmed up properly even after 15 miles I had 2 TDCI Focus's and they took forever to get hot- blame super efficient HPCR diesels - gave the Beemer a harder time the night after my post, pulled up on the drive and pushed the button and bingo - REST works a treat. Doh. Thanks for the responses
