Turned out, breaking down the deal I got on the Jeep and how well the Jeep competes with the Audi was a good way to motivate them.

It doesn't.. The Ram is a lil louder. But the engine does sound more like a truck than a diesel car. I know some were worried about that. That was just for reference..

When I first got my wk I was very disappointed how quiet it was. But I was used to my dads 2500 Ram. After driving mine I really liked how quiet it was. It surprised many people that the wk was a diesel. Actually opened the hood to show a couple friends for proof.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Man if some of your guys are buying this diesel and not doing LOTS of highway driving you will be in a world of hurt.

The particulate filter gets clogged up real fast with lots of city diving, and no time to clean it since you need steady 2-3K rpm cruising to heat it up and push out all the crap.

I put eighty thousand on 07 with mostly city driving and zero problems with the DPF. I don't think we will have any problems on the new one either. I know there are some other WK members that have over one hundred thousand without issues.

We'll find out. My driving is mostly "city" but 1/2 of that city driving is on freeways going across town as opposed to hour after hour of cross-country freeway driving. Depending on the time of day freeway driving around here can be 55 - 70mph or stop/go traffic during rush hour. It will be interesting. The waiting game is really wearing on me though....

Ok. Here's my next question. I've been reading the manual again. What's involved in cleaning out this fuel line water thingy? Or is that something service tech or dealer has to do?

Sort of like the fuel filter on a car but it also is a water separator.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I was thinking about all the special "things" that diesel owners get to worry about like the "fuel/water separator", cold starts, DEF, etc. I looked into each and every one of these things before I made the decision to go diesel. I'm still really happy that I did go Diesel, but there are some things that make diesels different, and possibly a little more "fiddly" than a gasser. Like using your block heater when its really cold.

As far as water in the fuel... It could happen on your very first tank, but that would not be typical. You might have to deal with it yourself, but its less likely. I've been working with Diesel powered ambulances for 18 years, and we put thousands of fleet miles on every year covering our 2000+ square mile ambulance district in the mountains outside Denver. We also pump our Diesel from the Town of Vail, Town of Avon, and Eagle County pumps rather than a nice well kept public fuel station. It snows here for 6-7 months a year, and we operate in pretty gnarly conditions with only the plastic Ford fuel cap to protect the fuel filler opening.

Anyway, my point is that if anyone were going to get hobbled by water in the fuel situations, it would likely have come up in those 18 years. I think regular draining and replacing of the filters during routine maintenance will meet the typical needs, and only an unusual event will require that you deal with the fuel water separator yourself.

Of course that's all theory, and one bad fill up could cause you a problem...
