Sometimes when on long run temp gauges reads 1/4 guage and swings up and down a little never gets to 1/2 gauge like short runs but then I went to Scotland in September and gauge spot on 1/2 gauge for 1100 miles ?

Hi Dennis , any update on this problem as mine has just started doing something similar on long runs , gauge drops to zero !

I'm not sure about diesels specifically, but I'd be looking at a stuck/sticking thermostat
