    Maybe time running would be a more useful figure than distance. At the time of day that I do the run it can be 15 minutes.

    How long have you had it?
    It maybe running with a modified always open stat to mask a problem.
    Time to have a look at the thermostat I think.
    When I had issues, only the genuine LR state did the job.
    I fitted Datatek fan mod also and the vehicle was so much better.

    I hope you tell us you have had it years and this is the first winter causing you issues.

    12 years in December. The heating has never been that wonderful but it does mainly short journeys. Fine on a long run.

    I tell lies. Just at the right hand edge of blue after 25 minutes.

    You don't have a thermostat.

    Mine was under cooling and rarely getting above the blue on the temp gauge until I had a water leak on the Water pump. As everything was off I replaced Thermostat at the same time. It now runs with the gauge steadfast at 12 o'clock.

    I think the main question is still how long is it running for when you take your wife to work. I can get to 2+ miles away from home quite quickly as I am almost on a dual carriage way and not give the coolant time to warm up.

    About 12 minutes each way.
