Re: Max MPG? Hypermiling the Diesel JGC

Might it be a problem with the car detecting the key fob? Try holding the key fob in the same hand you're pushing the exterior lock button with. That might help.

Re: EcoDiesel Which Oil Will You Use

For this poll I voted (i), Pennzoil, but would have wanted to vote both (i) and (iii), Other MS-11106. As I said above, I haven't decided yet. But I am leaning towards the Pennzoil.
