    Mercury thermometers are quite accurate, I don't use tunze (even they are very good), is the thermometer calibrated? Maybe @Anita or @George can help.

    This Problem we have at work. I have a SABS certified alcohol thermometer to test all our work temperature devices with.
    You would be surprised in the variance you get.

    not always especially after a large shock, but if you need to take a guess go with the alchol!

    Next time your in the lfs start browsing the thermometer section. and check the diffrent readings you get. If your buying buy the one with the most common reading.
