Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

While its true that they are separate systems, it could be that the bio fuel is thinner than regular diesel, and residual fuel is leaking past the rings into the crankcase when you shut it off. ...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

That's about right, but I also seem to recall that the DC group buy dealer added back something like $400 or so, which made it more like 6.5% off invoice. Check the DC thread to find out those...
