Well hello from England I own a 3.0 ltr Commander Here diesel is over 10 dollars a gallon, I can get even towing a caravan (mobile home) up to 26 mpg on the motorway (highway) but around town and its hilly here I get around 19
If you are buying a second hand unit check the swirl port motor and turbo pipe as the original ones leak straight on to the swirl port motor and they are expensive to replace I would not use biodiesel in a European engine...
Present: 2007 Jeep Commander 3.0 L CRD - 2" lift kit - full led interior lights - 6000K HID low beam - 4500K HID fog lights - black HULK wheels - custom side exhaust system - DPF removed - matte black front grille (plastidip) - extra HP and torque chip tuning.
Previous: 2003 Jeep Cherokee/Liberty 2.8 L CRD - custom exhaust system - front bar protection - custom rear tail light - sold at 110.000 KM .
Why would you not use biodiesel in the 3.0L diesel? Was the 3.0L in the Commander rated for B5 or B10?
In the UK there is no quality specification for biodiesel so it could be anything, Although some European manufacturers say its ok to B5 to B7 As a max I would not risk the injectors and would be concerned about oil dilution also its cold here
