That is also what the Meguair's Rep said. I called them back and they reassured me that thier compound would not scratch the finish when applied by hand or DA polisher, that is what makes the product a cut above the rest (no pun.) Only issue is that I don't have the 250 dollars to buy the polisher.

So whatever I do would have to be done by hand.

Did the first leg of the Journey home. Running mid-grade gas and did 99.8% highway and averaged just under 22 mpg says the EVIC doing 70-75 mph. Not bad at all. Have a truck full too. I wonder if a few treatments of MMO in the gas tank did something? lol

Curious why you run mid grade? It's not like the i6 has knock sensors or anything so normally it can't take advantage of the higher octane.

You know im not 100% sure. I guess my rational is that it is winter blend is crap and the mid grade is a little bit better and hopes to counter to the effects. Hell if I know that it actually does anything?

Made it back to the 757 woo! Gonna have a fun week cleaning the Jeep up!

Stats: (for those who care, I like to know how it does on the highway)
All on one tank of gas.
378 miles
Took 19.95 gallons on the fill up
3 people and a trunk full of two girls worth of crap
95% highway
Speeds from 65-78 mph
Averaged ~73 mph
By hand MPG's were 18.9.
EVIC said 19.4 avg MPG
Only had to kick down 3 times to make it up hills. The biggest hill was running O/D at 75 mph and flying up that hill getting a whole 8 "instant" mpg!

I like to know how the rolling brick does. Makes me feel better about myself. (not really )

Ohhh when I was at at like 378 miles I was pretty bone dry.

Again with the rolling brick, the speed does not help at all. But w/e lol. Spent 150 in gas today!! Yay! Them girls pack a lot of crap!!! Their one suit case probably weighed as much as your trunk full of junk!! haha

Dude thats really odd... is that by hand or evic calculations?

Fuel filter, seafoam, spark plugs? Fuel system cleaner, (injector cleaner)

How fast is your highway speed? 70's for me im get 21, 80's its 20. But down around 60 I get 23.

Ever since WJs came out the whole "having 4wd all the time gets worse mileage" went out the door because my 247 uses variable clutches so I'm almost always in rear wheel drive until it slips and then in fractions of a second its finding out which axle needs the power, and not a single electrical component involved... its pretty nice. I think its really in how and where you drive. I do the New York State Thruway which is pretty flat for the most part, when I went to PA to pick up my JK 18s it was really hilly. Also 63ish is the ideal mileage speed for WJs, start going faster and your Mileage is actually an exponential drop (due to wind resistance). Michael you're lucky to get what you do going 75ish, I think mine would be doing 18-19 but I guess stock it was doing exactly like yours. Dont remember mileage stats for my first stock highway drive in it. But no really its very much in the driver and using cruise control is a great help. As sad as it is your Jeep has a much more neutral driving approach (only give it an eeency bit of throttle as needed to accelerate in a stepping fashion) that is much easier on gas and makes sure you're not wasting
