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 .

Vw golf 2.0 gti, overheating, boiling water, no power loss

Sounds like you may need a new Thermostat.

Get a Haynes or Chilterns manual and a new Thermostat for the carfrom a car parts place like Autozone. Its normally a simple opperation to change it.
