    based on 141.9 for diesel that comes back as 28 mpg , seriously bad .
    shouldn't think the temperature being at 80 would be a problem .

    They are only a few quid m8,so maybe a good place to start?
    i changed mine not long ago but not because of excessive fuel consumption.

    yes it could , best way is to get the car on diagnostics & check for fault codes , then go into live data & see what temperature the ECU thinks the engine is at .

    try checking it from cold & see if the reading is roughly the same as the outside temperature ( give or take a few degrees either way )
