Never got the message. Not sure if it even needs to regen if it is run hot enough.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Just in case this helps someone else ...

I filled up my DEF last night (because dealer didn't do it). Based on the gauge (about 1/3) and one or two other reports, I figured it would take 2 2.5gal jugs so picked them up at O'Rielly. Interestingly, while both were supposed to have the funnel/tube - it turned out only one did, so I had to switch it from one bottle to the other. No big deal, though I'm curious how/why the 2nd jug didn't have it.

Anyway, a little over half-way through the first jug, it stopped filling. I thought that was odd, so stopped and went to check the EVIC - it showed about 50% full, so I went back and tried filling more. Emptied the rest of the first jug no problem. Checked the EVIC and it was about 2/3 so figured the 2nd jug should be just right to finish it off.

Half-way through the 2nd jug, it again stopped filling. Based on my previous experience, I decided to stop just briefly and start again. Started filling again and shortly after, the urea started overflowing so I stopped. I went back to the EVIC and it showed less than 100% so I waited a couple minutes and started filling again. The rest of the jug emptied no problem.

So, it seems, at least based on my first experience, that you need to periodically give it a chance to settle all the way into the tank. FWIW I didn't feel like I was filling "too fast" and the included funnel/tube has a built-in air vent.

Anyway, that was my experience.

Found a nice alternative use for the child-seat latch hooks ... bungie from the latch to the luggage tie-down holds my jump-start/compressor quite nicely.

Yeah I still don't know what to think.

I picked it up showing about 80%.

2 days later it was showing 0% on some starts, and 100% on some starts. The diesel tech at the dealer said that "if they sit in storage part full for a few months (mine did between build and delivery) the sensors get crystallized and need the DEF to slosh around for awhile to get them clean."

I bought 2, 2.5gal jugs at Autozone on the way home. It took about 1gal to fill it all the way up (until it came out of the top).

For the next day or 2 it kept showing 0% or 100%, then started staying at 100%.

I've driven about 500miles since I filled it up, and it's at about 80% on the gauge and holding there now.

Did you go brown or black interior? I saw one of these yesterday and told my guy I would be willing to give this and the brown a go over the red/brown summit I was looking for up to then. I'm a little worried that the interior fake metal trim stuff might clash with the exterior color?

Went with the brown interior - looks awesome! The "copper" is very muted, and I think the brown interior is the perfect fit for the Cashmere Pearl. I can post some pics tonight of the interior (wife has it now)

While reorganizing the JGC I noticed two spots where the paint was a bit different. Really evident under the fluorescent light but hardly noticeable outside where I did the inspection. Posted some pics, will be taking it to the dealer tomorrow.

Thanks for that, I have seen it though, just been a few between when I was in it and when I saw the Cashmere car yesterday. I figured it would look great as long as the trim didn't clash with the exterior paint.

They've got lots of colors, even a camouflage. Think I'll order two, one "deep cherry red pearl coat" and the camo.

Thanks for the link. I already ordered this one last night: Amazon.com: iJDMTOY 3D Carbon Fiber Pattern Genuine Premium Leather Remote Smart Key Holder FOB (2.8" x 1.9"): Automotive and will try the one you found if I am not happy with this when it arrives.

Interesting that almost everyone has a button pressed when we didn't want it to be story. My wife keeps telling me to leave my keys on the desk. However, once I do that I am sure that I will lock myself out sometime. Hopefully, one of these will work.

Sorry, just can't resist. Yes, this makes perfect sense, I always find that I can get more to go if I don't force it and just let it settle all of the way to the tank.

On the serious side, this is helpful advice, thanks!

I don't buy what the tech is saying as they haven't been sitting in storage that long. Also there was a post earlier that if you start with the remote the DEF shows empty, but if you start with the start button it will show accurately. Is that what is going on for you?
