Sorry to hear about that. When I got my CRD it was the opposite, I found a couple of things that weren't listed in the AD, I found I had auto start, the power inventor, there was a brand new hitch in the back cubby, iPod integration and a couple of other things.

Since Sunday with a four hour drive back home and city driving I'm seeing 15.0 MPG according to the dash. I have not figured out how many miles as the wife did not reset any of the trips. What are you guys getting with the fuel blend right now?

07 CRD with 104k and getting 21 average mixed driving. Something is not right at 15 MPG - either EVIC has completely lost its mind (it's always off a little) or there really is an issue. I have always thought that although winter blend probably yields worse mileage - the much colder ourside air offsets it a little in performance. Can't prove a bit of it but just my thinking.

I am resetting everything for my trip this weekend. I hope I see better results. I'm with you on the cold air.

I hooked up my Bully Dog GT from my JK and was able to read the settings of the WK. According to it I got 21 MPG and the Jeep's computer said I got 16 MPG.

Typically in the JK its the other way around with the tuner. I see around 15 MPG on the Bully Dog and 18ish on the JK's computer.

I'm glad to see a higher MPG on the Bully Dog on the WK. My goal is to get around 28-30 MPG on HWY.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but 28-30 in unrealistic for highways. At 65 mph on the highway, with GDE Eco tune, no lift, and stock tires, I'm able to see 24-25 MPG. If you want to hit 30 MPG, you'll have to troll along at 45 mph.

It maybe possible if you get a different rear end and go to 2wd only mode.

Well I will shoot for 25 then lol. 3+ more MPG more than where I'm at. I'm not going to throw a different rear end or give up the 4 wheel drive.

Its getting better milage than my JK right now.
Things I'm thinking of doing:
K&N drop in
Going to Nitrogen in all 5 tires
DPF Delete
GDE Tune

I hope with all of those I can get a little more MPG.

I just finished my GDE Ecotune and DPF delete about a month ago I have noticed a good increase in MPG 2 maybe 3 MPG, the problem is its also hunting season where I'm at so I put a ton of miles idling down the road and also its getting to be the 50/50 mixed of #1 and #2 diesel here so that is throwing everything off on top of it. I did have a trip to CO a month ago and averaged 22 MPG running 80-85 MPH, on the way back with about a 30 to 40 MPH side wind I was still doing anywhere from 19.5 to 21.5 at the same speeds. I can't wait for May to come when we switch back to straight #2 up here.

Why did you go with the Ecotune and not the Hot tune? I always drive 65 or 75 depending on the speed limit. I don't speed, i can't afford to get caught. I leave that up to the wife :-)

I went with the Eco vs the Hot because I think the Hot tune pushes everything way past its limits. Also because I think I'm one of the higher CRD's on the forums, I just rolled over 167,700 miles this morning and its still running good and strong. No need to hot rod it up.
