Re: V8s- Which gas do you use?

Exactly! So many people get sucked into the marketing hype that claims more power, and better mileage. It's pure BS that the marketing people like to put out there.

Re: V8s- Which gas do you use?

I used 87 at first, but switched to 89 and it runs much smoother. My fishbite is just about gone. Octane does nothing for gas mileage so don't think you will get better mileage. But if you are...

Re: Slight wiff of Gear oil or grease on new 2015 Overland

Other than a leak, thats the only way oil vapors come out of the diffs. You must have a smell coming from somewhere else besides the diffs.

Re: Slight wiff of Gear oil or grease on new 2015 Overland

Just remember that your diffs have a vent tube that comes off the diff to vent for oil expansion. ;)

Re: First Oil Change - Dealer said synthetic required

Sounds fair but I still don't buy the line about all new Chryslers will require synthetic. The API standard is what counts, not syn or dino.;)

Re: 2011 Towing/Camper questions

I would not tow at the max weight rating. Thats just me. The JGC is really not the vehicle to tow a 28 - 31 foot anything. Look at pickups.
