Wk2 3.0 CRD rear world mileage?
 
Was wondering what some of the guys outside the states are getting for mileage? (I'm assuming Australia is on EU gallon, so I can convert.) If this is posted someplace my apologies, I ran several searches and came up with nill.

Have done both, and the thread you posted wasn't all that informative for what I'm looking for. I saw one post for an old 3.0 CRD 2wd with swapped gears.

I see several posts from 2012+ 3.0 CRD owners, my bad for asking them what mileage they are seeing...

well a gent with a 12 is getting 26mpg after conversion did you go the australian site and look there also? theres a link posted in one of those threads. also another guy that said he had owned 2 and he said 25 was realistic so i dunno........

We talk liters per 100km here in Australia. most report around 7.5 -8 L/100km on the highway and around 10-11 city.
There is a thread called diesel people enlighten me or similar and loads of discussion there

Oh and with the 8 speed this will improve

Well based on conversions.

at 7.5L per 100km: 62.1371 Miles / 1.98129 gallons = 31.36 mpg

at 8L per 100km: 62.1371 Miles / 2.11338 = 29.4 mpg.

Not too bad! And you have the 5 speed I'm assuming, since you are saying you think the 8 speed will help mileage. (That'll depend on gearing for highway, should help city/mixed some.)

I just picked up a 2013 (five speed transmission) JGC Loredo Diesel and in it's first 900 kilometres I have a fuel consumption of 8.7 litres/100km or a fraction over 27mpg (US gallons). Not bad for a new car driven in a mix of city and highway conditions. I love this thing.

Then I must do something wrong. 13,5 liter/100km urban and 10 liter / 100km extra-urban. Heavy foot in the city and around 140km/h cruising speed on highway. 2013 S-limited with 5-speed gearbox. I wonder what 8-speed would do to the consumption:D

Recently did 5500Kms around eastern Australia towing a 18 ft van (1700Kgs) and averaged 12.9 litres/100 km for the whole trip.

Hi ,

I have a 2012 GJC Overland diesel.
I have recently returned from an interstate trip covering 1240 Klm.
Mostly highway travelling with speed zones anywhere from 80 kl / hr to 110 kl / hr.

averaged 8.2 per 100 litres on total trip.Fantastic fuel figures given I had Jeep fully loaded with gear and people.
Around Brisbane I usually get between 8.8 to 10.4 kilometres per 100 litres.


Regards
Strategy
