Re: Full diesel filter, electronic throttle control warning & engine malfunction warn

Hi all,

I'm finding my 2012 WK2 CRD lately appears to be down on power when running on Vortex diesel. It runs well on BP Ultimate diesel, but the drop when going to Vortex is quite noticeable.

Re: What is your favourite distillate?

The only premium diesel in our area is Vortex, so I use that.

It's similarly priced to regular diesel at the Shell/Coles nearest us, so there's no price disadvantage. We do some of our groceries...

Re: 265/60R18 AT tyres now available in LT construction

Just as a rule of thumb I use the sticker psi plus 10%-15% for P type tyres, which makes it 36-38psi.

However with the LT's, just somewhere in the range of 38-40psi and see what suits you. The max...

Re: 265/60R18 AT tyres now available in LT construction

That's not an issue in NSW. You are permitted to fit tyres that are rated down to 140km/h, but no less. As RMS considers this roadworthy then insurance cannot refuse you.

Re: Grand Cherokee + sand = FAIL

The error does still occur in 4 LO, but you retain drive to the front wheels and you can still drive out. There's a number of people on this thread that can vouch for that.
