Yeah the problem is the capless flap doesn't open properly with the larger nozzle. I too have worn a $1.50 worth of diesel, I sheepishly ducked into caravan for a fresh pair of clothes.

Take your vernier callipers to the servo, measure the large nozzle and make a reducer. If you get pass that flap you'll be right.

Where did he get this feature from as mine certainly doesn't have it?
You sure? You might need to set it along with your seat position. Put it in reverse and hit the save button I think

If u referred to "tilt side mirror when reverse", the mine does have. This is far cry from auto adjust.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I'm glad I'm not the only one to have shower in diesel. I actually was in line waiting for a car to stop refilling not noting the high volume sticker. Hey if he can use it, why can't I. I have found that it takes a while to refuel 90 litres when you're in a hurray.

I didn't find that feature to be much of help. I turned it off and sticked small wide angle mirrors on side mirrors instead.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Yeah, I turned the tilt side mirror down option off too, makes it harder to see important things, like poles, walls and other cars to the side of you.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

It appears that Jeep has given out a few overlands to journos for reviewing. Here's another one.

For the guys having problems with the hi-flow diesel pumps, maybe you could consider one of these:

Not bad except the shipping to Oz is a killer! Think I'll wait till I'm stateside later in the year.... may even add some jeep accessories! Let's hope the dollar does the right thing and stays strong against the greenback.

Check the Amazon site. Won't get much cheaper.
