I have actually been running some valvoline premium blue 228.3 oil this summer. I got it about 12 bucks a gallon. Seems to like the oil. I will change it out for 0w40 or 5w40T6 come winter.

You can probably also extend your oil changes to longer intervals without the DPF.

I get about 8-9K on oil change intervals on mine. I get oil analysis on each oil change. I run my Jeeps pretty hard.

I have both. Preferences:
Eco Tune - Big fuel savings. Smooth throttle. Less turbo lag than stock. My wife's favorite.
Hot Tune - Moderate fuel savings. Aggressive throttle. Less turbo lag than Eco. My favorite.
can't go wrong with GDE!

hmm, this seems like a very hard choice..

is the hot tune ok if you just want to take it easy too? i.e. not too jumpy?

cheers!

Hi James,
The supplier that I bought my GDE tune from in Australia only recommends and sells the Eco tune as he believes that the Hot tune pushes the engines parameters.

Cheers, Craig

thanks Craig,

i know its the sensible option to go for the eco tune. but the main reason for wanting the hot one was that people have said it reduces the 'mushy' pedal at the first few CMs of pedal travel.

is the eco better than stock at least on the take off? (without having to use lots of throttle?)

cheers!

Yup, that's where the DFP should be.
If I am not mistaken, the regeneration cycle is turned off with the GDE tune.

thanks man, well thats good i guess, i was sure i would have one due to the euro emissions being fairly strict.

i know you can pay GDE an extra $100 for the dpf delete but as i didnt have one to start with, im not sure i want to pay for that!!

If GDE is using your original tune info and it does not have a Regen then there should be nothing to disable. Then you should only be purchasing the Eco or Hot which deletes the swirl motor.
