Can't wait to get 20k miles or so on her to see where the mileage settles at. Like Kinsman74, I have a feeling when I go back to work tomorrow that my mileage is going to tank. Gotta do 75-80 or get ran over and quite a bit of stop and go bumper to bumper. I think that 28 will drop to 22 real quick.
You should mention that you are "cheating" too. You're using the GDE tuned ECM, right?

Re: Eco Diesel Mileage

5000kms on Jeep and avg is 23.7mpg / 9.9l/100kms hand calculated. Best was 27.9mpg. Mostly city driving have yet to put a full hwy tank on the car. Very impressed considering the amount of short trips and cold starts.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I pretty much installed the GDE ECM immediately upon delivery of the vehicle so I don't have any baseline numbers with my driving style to compare it to. At this point, it's hard for me to imagine I got a 3-5mpg boost like they claim. In either case, the ecodiesel drives as nicely as OEM and there is no weirdness about it, i.e. it's safe for the wife to drive, etc... With my tuned VW TDI I gotta be careful about who I hand the keys to

Re: Eco Diesel Mileage

Hand calc average over 5895 miles: 27.24 MPG (US). Worst: 24.48 MPG. Best: 29.64 MPG. Probably 95% highway, 4% gravel, 1% city. Fuel cost per mile since January 9, 2015: $0.11/mile. Often carrying close to the load limit for the vehicle between cabin cargo, roof cargo box, and hitch mounted cargo tray.

Dash reading is usually optimistic by 0.5 to 1 MPG versus hand calc.

Re: Eco Diesel Mileage

I've had 2 25.X mpg tanks in a row. Now that I've settled in to the Jeep a bit I find myself driving faster, 75-80, on hwy's and I have some bumper to bumper as well as extended idle time (remote starts) affecting things.
