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

You can use the Mobil oil finder to find the recommended choice (Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W30) for the 2014 JGC Diesel in their vehicle selector tool. Quart bottles are available in PepBoys and Oreilly's for about $12 a bottle.

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

Any objective reason to buy Mobile 1 ESP rather than Pennsoil Ultra Euro L? I generally prefer Miobile 1, but the Pennsoil is considerably cheaper. Does the CRD come with Mobile 1?

I don't know what the Factory fill is but I ran the Mobile 1 ESP in my Bluetec and put it through some pretty rough service. Always happy.

Great link. Thanks!

Thanks. Great info. I may just have the local O'Reillys order a couple quarts.

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

I am curious if Rotella is available.

I run T6 in my car (diesel oil in a subaru...go figure) and I have nothing but good things to say.

First 2 changes it was dark (thinking it was removing deposits) but then now it comes out 7500 miles later looking almost brand new.

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

Hey gang,

Has anyone heard the preliminary numbers of sales of the diesel?

Just curious.

If sales numbers aren't available, maybe one of the JNAP guys can tell us what the current run rate is. I'm guessing that after the initial flurry things have quieted down, especially with diesel fuel currently at $.80 - $1.00 more than unleaded in my area. With the cold weather we're having now, my mpgs are less than 20. These things won't help sales with the general public. When discussing diesel sales with my dealer, he felt that the diesel GC will be a "specialty" vehicle, but putting the 3.0 in the RAM 1500 could be a much better selling vehicle. I tend to agree with him. That said, I still love my unicorn and made the right decision for me.

the Australian vehicle is different compared to North America. That is similar to the European version, no DEF for example

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

I picked up my 2014 JGC 4X4 Limited on November 8th. As of today I have put 4,838 miles on it with everyday trips on the interstate that are 40 miles one way along with a couple of 750 mile trips.

My oil life gauge shows 52% so I am right on track for an oil change at 10k miles. My DEF tank was filled at the dealership when I bought it and now the gauge shows about a third full so it would appear that I'll be filling that well before my first oil change.

So far, with 4,838 miles under my belt, the average miles per gallon reading is 28.8. That sounds high but with the length trips that I've taken and in central Mississippi weather (mild) maybe not.

I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase. Well made, fun to drive and perfect for my work.

The only thing I would not order again is those damn perforated seats. Everything gets caught in those perforations and doesn't just vacuum out! Other than that I'm a very satisfied customer. Now if it'll just do this for another 295,000 miles I'll be happy.

Thanks to all the leads on oil. I was able to pick up a couple quarts of the Mobil 1 ESP Formula at Pepboys for a bit over $12 per quart. I told the manager there I appreciated them having it in stock. I assumed it could be a bit hard to find, so wanted a couple quarts on hand when the time comes to top it off a bit.

Holy crap. 4,000+ miles in a month? I guess you'll be the one letting us know how maintenance goes....
