I have a 2005 CRD and my fuel economy has been better than expected. With your fuel economy having taken such a nose dive, let me ask you some questions.
1. When is the last time you changed the air filter?
2. When you shift, are you inadvertently dis-engaging the overdrive? Look for a light on the dash.
3. Have you cleaned the boost pressure sensor?
4. Have you changed the little filter on the passenger side of the engine that helps with controlling the turbo boost/waste gate?

I'm a new member on this forum with a 2006 Liberty CRD, currently having 35,000 miles on it, and am the second owner. It had Recalls F21, F23, F31, and G03 done before I bought it in October of 2008 with 19,000 miles on it. I bought the car from a Jeep dealer in NH, and I also purchased a Chrysler 7/100 Maximum Care Service Contract from them at the same time. The car now resides mostly in Maine, where everyone knows these cars were never sold new, and I'm having a bit of of trouble finding a dealer here that has techs with much experience with a CRD, although some say they've sent a mech for training on them. Primarily because of the extended service contract, I would prefer to use Jeep dealers for even most normal maintenance work, even though I'm aware that it's not required. I would like to establish a working business relationship with a dealership that can instill confidence that it would be knowledgeable to handle all issues that might arise, especially around the unique characteristics of the CRD.
I'm not into all the mods I've heard people doing to improve their KJ CRDs.
Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?
