Another WK newb, with a minor bug, and some ?'s

Hi guys I'm new to the board.

I got a 06 4.7L Limited GC for my daily driver. There weren't any 06 5.7's left, so there wasn't much of a decision needed. Though I was temepted to get a Trailblazer SS instead (I didn't like the traction control system).

The problem I'm having right now is with the easy exit seat option.

On the menu, it says Y, but it won't activate. It was working fine a few days ago. But since I've reset my seat position, and to have it work with the remote, it doesn't move the seat back after being shut off. I've tried resetting it, but nothing happens.

Questions.

I just finished my 2nd tank. I'm up to just under 14mpg (mostly city), about how long does it normally take for the mileage to be steady?

Has anybody tried any chips on these? I wouldn't mind getting another 20-30 hp, and having quicker shifts from the transmission. I'm curious if the chips really help with this. If not chips, has anybody tried any piggyback fuel controllers? Does the ecu relearn around these, or do they actually work with the ecu?

I'm pretty happy with it so far. The stereo sounds pretty good. The ride and handling is nice too.

It doesn't work in all positions. Move the seat up a little or back some and it should work

My father has a 4.7 Laredo and averages about 16mpg per tank. He'll get around 20 on the highway, but he does mostly country driving, so it's not as extreme as city. It's a 5000 pound Jeep with a V8 and the aerodynamic characteristics of a brick. It's to be expected He has about 3500 miles on it now, and its starting to become more consistant. It'll get there.

Haven't heard of anyone doing a chip yet. There's a speedfreaks section on Jeeps Unlimited, you can check out over there. You may be able to drop an HO cam into it from an '04 WJ. It may work the same. Id head on over to speedfreaks and get the info.

City mileages vary but 14mpg is probably normal for your driving. A lot of stop and go and idling will bring it down into the 13's and even a bit lower!

As you get several thousand miles on the Jeep the fuel efficiency (and power) will likely improve a bit.
