Prob would help to quote the average speed displayed for the period you calculated the fuel economy for... theres a pretty direct correlation and would help others compare data.
I dont get my CRD for another 2 weeks by my twin turbo diesel BMW X1 gets 9L/100km in the city with an average speed of 33kh/h and this goes to 10L/100km when traffic is heavier and average speed falls to 30km/h... Ill be shocked if the CRD jeep can beat that given it weighs at least 500kg more.
No, don't drive like a granny but I'm not a lead foot either, being my first turbo diesel "car" I'm still getting used to manually dropping gears up hills etc and sometimes over rev. I do put the foot down often.
EVIC ranges between high 9's and low 11's but a straight calculation using the fuel docket gives me high 8's to mid 9's. This is raw data, litres used and kms gained. Remember, this is 98% city driving with the odd run on the freeway.
For such a heavy unit, that equates to fantastic fuel economy.
