Full Tank upon Delivery?

So I took delivery of my 14' Altitude. The gas was at 1/4 tank. I was not trying to be an azz but I asked my guy what the heck. He took it and gassed it up for me. However, upon returning he indicated that their dealership was not going to see any return on gas for vehicles due to a Chrysler decision to cancel reimbursement back in 09. It was meant to alleviate costs, which I could understand would cost millions per year. However, this sounded silly to me so my question to you is:

Did you have to put gas in your vehicle after taking delivery?

Re: Full Tank upon Delivery?

They told me it would be full and it was. Every new car - various brands - we have purchased had a full tank.

Re: Full Tank upon Delivery?

My dealership took my car when it arrived and filled it up and then gave me the keys. I guess it varies from dealership to dealership.

Re: Full Tank upon Delivery?

Mine was full. I actually got a second tank free when I returned to grab some paperwork I left at the dealership and the spare fob about a week later. Nice touch.

Re: Full Tank upon Delivery?

I would say that this is nothing new on the 1/4 tank of gas. Many dealers only give about that much, I'd say feel lucky they did fill it. My dealer gave me about 1/2.

Re: Full Tank upon Delivery?

Re: Full Tank upon Delivery?

Dealer gave me a full tank. I think it depends on who you deal with at the dealer and the dealer policy. The previous vehicle we bought from this dealer, the sales manager was an ass and after closing the deal, he told them to only fill it to 1/4 tank. The salesman was nice enough to ignore his command and nearly filled the tank for us.

Re: Full Tank upon Delivery?

It varies dealer to dealer. It is a common practice to deliver a brand new car with a full tank of gas, but it's not really "required". Some dealers are tight azzes about it. To me, if they give you a hard time about one tank of fuel on their several thousand dollar profit, they're probably gonna try to screw you every other chance they get if you come in for service.

FWIW, I read somewhere that each Jeep gets 7 gallons of fuel on the assembly line.

Re: Full Tank upon Delivery?

Just picked up my Overland last week and it was only 1/4 full.

If they are going to charge $995 for "destination fee" the least they can do is fill the tank IMO.
