Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
Here's another one I did. This stop pictured below I was testing out the range to get a baseline of what is possible. I drove maybe 20 miles past once the low fuel message showed up. On my SRT I get the low gas light message around 40 miles. I also discovered this changes with the average mpg. IE when I'm getting better average mpg I'll get the gas light with a high estimated range. Lower average mpg then the lower the estimated range. Normally though, in my case I get the gas light at 38/40 miles. Then at 30 it goes to low fuel and no estimated range. The other fuel stop I posted I really didn't have a choice. I went to the next nearest gas station. I was worried if I'd make it. I drove a good 40-50 miles past the low fuel message.

^you could end up with a bad fuel pump and a Jeep that won't start if you keep running the gas level down to fumes. Been there, done that. Not fun.

Re: What options on your GC did you discover weeks after?

I would also think that even though the tank holds 24 gallons or so that the filler neck probably can hold another half gallon or more. I would think that is why people are able to get more gas than what the tank is rated for.

Worked for me as well, make sure you've selected the Hard Drive (HDD).

Re: What options on your GC did you discover weeks after?

The grease on the runner of the wind screen of the sunroof works great at getting the center dash door to open when smeared on the little side latches... I'm sure they engineered it that way.. And that's why they put soooo much up there.

Re: What options on your GC did you discover weeks after?

Any truth to disabling the traction control gives you better mpg?

I haven't see any noticeable gains in my WK2 SRT8 driving with or without t/c on/off. Seems to get the same mpg.

Losing 10 pounds will give you better MPG
