I used Diesel Kleen and the winter version in my 07 WK but didn't notice any improvement in either performance or fuel economy.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Since I can't have my diesel now, at least I get to fly with Vtail to Detroit on Sunday to meet up with Chevy and Brainstormer to take a tour of the Jefferson North American Plant and see how the unicorn making machine works. Should be a fun trip. Looking forward to meeting other members from Jeep Garage and the people who build our Man toys (no offense intended to the women here). Maybe we can get Chevy to find our lost Jeeps.

I expect a full report with pictures and voluminous commentary. Wish I could make it but am headed to KC, MO for my daughter's wedding!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Just got a PM from Vtail that Brainstormer sent. Too funny not to share with the rest of you.

Our Jeeps have no delivery date. Short trip but fun for sure. Safe travels, stay in touch.

Brainstormer, you made my day

Seems perfectly reasonable to me. What's the problem?

I hope Jeep allows something for those waiting patiently or not. Something like 0% for 60 months or 3 months no payments, or lifetime warranty for CRD's. Since I have been in 100% inspection for three weeks now, they should offer lifetime. Just asking (saying).

Re: 2014 diesel production

Just got my build sheet from Milous! It's sure nice to have and drool over, but I'm not sure it beats actually having and driving the car...

Milous, I think you should add a 5th level of membership - Level 5 members would get their cars shipped from you day after they're built I'm sure you'll have a lot of takers!

Oh well, let's hope they ship before christmas

I let my subscription lapse July 1. They tried to get me to renew and told me I could transfer the subscription to my new Jeep. I had to say "no" about 7 times before they would cancel the automatic renewal. I do miss some of the music and news channels bit the i-Pod and radio sound quality is so much better than XM.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I listened to Octane on Sirius but beyond that it was never worth actually paying for beyond the 6-month free trials I got with my truck. I don't think my wife even knows how to get to the SAT radio in her Explorer

-Update from this morning - my sales rep called me this afternoon. He says my GJC was built on sept 25 and shipped to storage the same day. They called Chrysler to see what was happening with all their diesel orders. They were told, he says, that all diesels were on hold for 100% quality control inspection. He says Chrysler told them they are now ready to ship and mine is scheduled to go out on the 11th( of October). I don't know if that is bullshit but maybe I'll have my jeep by the end of next week seeing as Detroit to Toronto is only about 400km.
Then again, since we are talking about skittle farting unicorns, it might be the 11th of October 2014.
