Default temperature plot precision

Hi all.
I'm plotting the temperature rise against the radial position in a pipe due to viscous dissipation. The temperature rise is 0.01 degC at the wall as seen in the attached plot. I've used Fluent to calculate the temperature rise.

My problem is that I can see that Fluent has only reported the result with 3 trailing digits, which causes unwanted steps in my plot. Do one of you guys know how to rise the number of trailing digits in my calculation? (I am running with double precision...)
