Re: Eco Button Impact on Performance?

I was aware. I am old school - I keep a fuel log in the vehicle...31MPG over the entire trip. One fill was over 33, another under 30, with a few more in between (attempted to fill wherever fuel was...

My JGC refused to go into regen and filled up the DPF. When the dealer checked the codes, there was only oil-life related tripped.

While I cannot know for sure without seeing the programming,...

Re: DEF Filter Warnings

What is your Oil Life counter at? I learned from experience that it WILL NOT regen with a 0% oil life, even if the oil was changed but the counter not reset (which is what happened to me a few...

Re: 8,000 miles and in the shop

Are you changing the oil yourself, or just verifying that the dealer/shop used the proper oil? I ask not because of the oil spec, but because of the Oil Life counter - it MUST be reset after a...

Re: Does the DPF regen system make Diesel unusable as a full time work vehicle?

I just had the "DPF full" triggered limp mode. It appears that the ONLY reason it went into limp mode was because of the stupid oil life counter. Had that been properly reset (and had I been able...

Re: exhaust system regeneration process

The Dealer did the change. I reminded them at least 5 times during the process that this was a CRD and needed the "special" oil, and they confirmed they used it.

I would be shocked if the...

Re: Jeep GC Overland/Summit diesel vs. Audi TDI vs. BMW X diesel

As a Diesel driver for 9 years now, I have found that it is best to stay away from the low-volume stations whenever possible. A gunked-up fuel filter really messes with your mojo.

Re: How much did you pay for your ecodiesel extended warranty?

There it is! I am wrong. Great catch. Their system shouldn't have let me do that - so I all have to do is to get the dealer to certify it and I'm good to go, eh?
