Maybe it only uses 100 miles to make the average mpg. The first couple of miles would be almost 0

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

Never owned a new vehicle ( gas or diesel) that didn't get better mileage after getting some miles on them. My Silverado, with the 6.2, is just starting to improve after 22,000 miles. 12.5 mpg is the reason it is being replaced with the Summit.

Could be but I didn't notice any change in it offhand. If nobody else notices this maybe we just chalk it up to that. It definitely wasn't grade changes as Ohio is aweful flat...

I was wondering though, could it be something programmed into the software such that when it is breaking in during the first hundred miles they do something specific to help the breakin process? Probably not but I guess well see if anyone else notices this.

I am not sure what you mean by the mpg part... Like it wont give an average until you hit 100 miles? I think it gives one as quick as 1-2 miles...

You did remind me of something though. Our vehicles give a "total run time" clock in one of the pages in the center cluster, what did everyone else's read? Mine shows it drove 14 miles in 5 hours... Idle much???? That didn't make me happy to see.

EDIT: I don't think it was the dealer that idled the car for hours as I specifically asked them to keep idling to a min.

It may just use the last 100 miles as a rolling average.. 0-100...5-105, etc.

As for trip time, I know our explorer counts time as being in the ignition ON position, even if the engine isn't running.

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

I have a 13 Outback and mileage has not changed since day one. Now with 17000 miles. First vehicle that has ever done that. YMMV I guess. I will be thrilled with 28 on the hiway. I can't justify the diesel based on cost as this isn't a need but a want. Mileage pay back isn't but fun factor is...

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

To the Fuel Economy comments, I did notice 2 things....

Yes the fuel economy was pretty crappy the first short bit and that cleaned up quickly. This may be related to sitting for a month and barely ever running.

Another thing I noticed is that the engine does run differently once up to optimal temperature. When it is cold it is actually a little noisier than once it is warm and I do see a bit of a mileage difference vs when it gets warm, but I think that is all to be expected. When I say optimal, I am only going by the analog gauge and it appears it really quites down and hits its stride when the needle hits the first 1/4 line. I should likely look a little further into running temps but I need to be making some longer trips.

I will order the tuner eventually but want some of you guys to test it out first!

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

Unless it's changed Chrysler gives the average of the last 300 miles. Yes on every vehicle, it's something us Cummins guys complained about because you can't even get the average of one tank.

That would be disappointing. My Subaru gives mpg based on the trip counter. This is the best way imho

Have you tried resetting the average in the evic when you fill up? I do it every time I fill up, along with the Trip A odometer.. I like to track actual mileage vs. the evic's projected mileage. Well not really, it's just something I can't stop myself from doing. I've found that when you reset the mpg average the projected miles to empty jumps up a bit.. If you don't, it goes off old averages.

For example, I get about 12.5 and MAYBE 350 miles to a tank if I take it easy. When I fill up the evic typically shows 370ish miles to empty, and when I go into the averages it reads whatever it was based off old driving habits. But if I reset the average after I fill up, when I start the truck it reads like 420ish miles to empty, and when I start driving, if I jump right on the freeway it'll read almost a whopping 16mpg!!! Obviously as I drive it changes and goes back down.

Point is, you can get a fresh reading on each tank as your engines break in.. Unfortunately my truck is well broken in (60k miles), so 13ish is about all I'll ever see. But if you all are starting at the projected mpg, then I wouldn't be surprised to hear 34-35 next summer for some.
