2013 User Guide Mistake or Fact??

Hello,
Is the User Guide for the 2013 year incorrect regarding fuel requirements. Its list 91 minimum for the V8. My dealer says its correct but the 2011 and 2012 had 89 as the recommended fuel. What changed this year?? Thanks

i was wondering the same thing, I only have about 2,000 miles on mine, but plan on using 89 octane unless I am heavily convinced otherwise.

Do you have the latest version, Fifth Printing, of your owners manual? If not, download it from Jeep.com. It say 87- 89, on page 542.

Jeep Owners | Download an Owners Manual 2004 - 2011 | Jeep

This link has OMs through 2014.

The printed version of the user guide I received with the car and the PDF I downloaded recommend 91 octane.

The manual I downloaded says to use 87, which I've been doing. Funny thing is that the manual says that premium is not recommended.

I already ordered printed copies of the all the manuals from Chrysler. Hopefully those will be more current and consistent with each other!

The most current UG on the 14 still tells you to put the key in the ignition to program the fobs. I guess if I believed the UG I'd have to order an ignition switch.

go with your gut, and don't believe everything you read.
