I reckon with Temperatures in the UK you would be ok though, and with diesel at 97p a litre in Gibraltar I'll suffer the higher minimal fuel efficiency.

Good thread though and I think it's personal choice - if you have Morocco planned then viscous all the way!
F@@k southern Spain The death valley and desert SW American is a hell'of a lot hotter and they works just fine

Viscous fans use energy. My 300tdi without viscous does 30 mpg. Try getting that without driving like a fossil with viscous. The electric fan never runs all winter. That at least 6 months of fuel saving with our climate

I don't understand ?

My 1995 300 tdi has a viscous fan and two elelctric fans in front of the radiator as standard from the factory.

Surely all have this ?

I went to add an electric fan to assist my intercooler and discovered the two fans. I have never heard them operate mind you, even here in Australia.

My standard 1995 300 tdi comes with two electric fans in front of the radiator and the viscous fan behind. So I presume you can order the standard fans. I have never heard the electric fans start up.

Maybe I should wire them in to a digital WGT meter at the alarm set point to turn them on?

The two fans in front of the rad are, as MHM says, air conditioning fans .. they don't start up till you turn the aircon on.

Bummer.

I thought that they were operated from a thermostat when the water temp got too high.

I suppose it would not hurt to have them come on during high EGT though.

Thanks for that info.
