Jeep Diesel vs Mt Washington Auto Road

Did the 7.4 miles getting 7.2 MPG. I thought the engine was very impressive. It pretty much walked up effortlessly. Had the oil temp pegged at 237 the whole way.

Re: Jeep Diesel vs Mt Washington Auto Road

Cool, I did this back in July. I didn't record any numbers though, just let the turbo cool off at the summit. Have you ever done the sunrise drive up there?

Any smoke once down and leaving? I reported smoke after doing the same trek last August.

Re: Jeep Diesel vs Mt Washington Auto Road

237 oil temp no problem, you can run up to over 450 degrees+before oil may break down.

Dino can't be used in our diesel Jeeps, so we're good. The specs on the special oil required for the diesel give it great high temp properties.
