      Have you checked the coolant level? Any leaks?

      Temp gauge not moving much and no heat could be t-stat stuck open.

      Like mentioned above you need a new thermostat. Check the passanger floor for dampness. Your heater core might be shot. Do the windows get a film on them? What is extremely bad MPG?

      I haven't noticed any film on the window, and I don't think there is any dampness, and I'm only getting about 220-240 miles on a full tank.
