diesel mpg

Hi
I just done a 400mile round trip in a compass diesel and I was very impressed with the MPG. I would have never put jeep and great mpg together but I can with the compass.
Sorry about the image it was on my phone.

That's impressive. I too have the Compass Turbo Diesel (i'm from Australia). At about 6,000km I've noticed the response/performance has improved significantly (engine broke in maybe??).......and now my fuel consumption has gone up!!

I now average (city driving) 8.2L/100km (34.5mpg - UK, 28.6mpg - US). Highway Driving I get about an average of 7.2L/100km (37.6mpg - UK, 31.3mpg - US).

Haha, you can try driving on the wrong side of the road to increase your mpg

The Turbo Diesel engine, in my opinion, completes the MK/Compass. Surprisingly for a 2L 4 cylinder, the engine sounds really tough!

The 1.9L TDI that we get (for VW diesel models, none were offered for the '07 year though ) sounds pretty good too. I really like it. If the VW dealer had actually got me a diesel in within a decent amount of time I would be driving it as opposed to my Caliber. I checked with them in July and they FINALLY called me back in frikkin' March. 2 weeks after I bought my non diesel Caliber.

Donít think you will ever get it even VW are dropping this engine so canít see jeep will have it for long.
I like this engine now but looking at the long term I wouldnít want one. Having the injectors in the engine is just asking for trouble. VW have had trouble with fuel getting past the injector seals and mixing with the oil resulting in engine damage.
I believe they also canít get the emissions down on this engine hence VW dropping it, the common rail engine is much more easier to control.
But it does make the caliber , patriot and compass the petrol models are a waste of time when you compare the power and drive between the two.
Regards,
Merlin

Yeah, the Pumpe Duse (literally injector pump translated) engines can't meet the upcoming emissions requirements for US or Europe. As far as the injector problems I haven't read about it on TDIclub anywhere, but then again its mostly the 1.9L TDI engines there. I DO want one, my only problem is the timing belt as opposed to a timing chain. Personally, I would rather a lower pressure injector blow or act up as opposed to a high (20k PSI) one blow, but that's just me.
