Question about Volkswagen Golf
It the temperature sensor is faulty the ECM will think that the engine is constantly cold so it will keep the fuel to air ratio high constantly = the fuel consumption will be high. Your mechanic is probably right, and replacing the sensor is a relatively cheap job - less than 50€.
BTW to identify your exact model just look on it's ID badge, it's inside the engine bay .
