Wow thanks for the heads up on the fuel pump cooling. I don't want to deal with replacing it.

I get "fuel low" on the evic with a dong. No light ever comes on.

Do you realize that if you drive it below 3 gallons on more than one occasion, you're going to be replacing you fuel pump once maybe twice a month.

Like I said, Chrysler does it for a reason.

Re: 4.7 V8 (05 to 07) Fuel range after E

Why run it that low ever? It costs just as much to keep it topped off as it does to fill it up from E. I never let mine get below 1/8. It's just not worth it. I'm going to buy the damn gas anyway. It's part of my weekly ritual. Once a week I go grab a cup at Starbucks and there's a Shell right on the corner. I get my caffiene, the Jeep gets it's premium, and I never have to worry about running out, running low if I get stuck in traffic, or having to waste time at the gas station if I need to get somewhere quickly.

Re: 4.7 V8 (05 to 07) Fuel range after E

Because i have been out of work for almost 2 months now with no income at all so when i need to get to an interview i pushed the limits of my gas tank. now that i know it could burn out the pump i wont do it again but thats why i did it in the first place.

I can understand that...

What I don't understand is why people who aren't in your predicament run it on E.

Anyhow...good luck to you on your job search. It's tough out there...

Re: 4.7 V8 (05 to 07) Fuel range after E

When on a long trip it's annoying to have to pull in for fuel at 300klm (when the light comes on and says 0 to empty), when you can get fully 400klm before you actually NEED to fill up.
Thats why TJXYWJ.

Re: 4.7 V8 (05 to 07) Fuel range after E

i love this thread... i dont know how many times ive pushed it passed the E mark on my WK to the point that i think any second i will run out of gas... ive probably been right around 1/4 tank below the lowest mark... i've never actually calculated that but everytime i do it i lose about 5 minutes of life because im so scared im gonna run out of gas. I heard a comedian once say how its nearly impossible to run out of gas these days because of the idiot light, the idiot reminder that the light is turning on and the extra gas they put after that point... i think about it every time i drive around with barely any gas, and i have yet to prove him wrong. IMHO i am perfectly happy with Chrysler giving us an extra 3 gallons to work with ... society likes to procrastinate and i sure as hell dont like filling up my gas tank so i push it as far as i can... even if im not really out of gas haha

edit: knock on wood that i dont run out of gas on my way home from work

Re: 4.7 V8 (05 to 07) Fuel range after E

I always fill up at 1/4 tank so I never have these silly issues.
