Fueling your Jeep with gasoline is likely something you do every week or so without a second thought, but your fuel system holds the power to significantly enhance your drive. There is no one better equipped to truly understand what it means to “fuel” a vehicle than a Jeep owner. You rely on that fuel to take you to places that regular car owners can only dream of. Therefore, when your Renegade BU starts to underperform, even slightly, it is a good idea to consider fuel service.
To get your Renegade BU back to performing at its optimal just-out-of-the-dealership capability, servicing its fuel system can certainly help. Jeep owners have three options when it comes to fuel service: a complete cleaning of the fuel tank, the fuel injector or a comprehensive cleaning of the entire fuel system. Flushing the fuel system helps break down particles and impurities that have collected over time. To keep your Jeep running smoothly and efficiently, these impurities should be regularly flushed out of the vehicle’s system. By servicing your Renegade BU’s fuel system, you’ll experience better gas mileage, decreased emissions and better engine performance. Before you know it, you’ll be back to maneuvering your prized possession off the beaten track with confidence.
Regular fueling of your Jeep is dependent on the type and size of its engine. Renegade BU models equipped with a 1.4L or 2.4L engine require at least 87 octane, with varying levels of ethanol. For the 2.4L Flex Fuel Renegade model, up to 85 percent ethanol (E85) is required. Non Flex Fuel 2.4L models should take no more than 10 percent ethanol. Diesel models, regardless of engine size (1.6L or 2.0L) require EN 590 Diesel fuel. Unleaded 89 octane is required for the 1.6L E-Torque Renegade BU model. All Renegade BU models have a fuel capacity of 48 liters, or 12.7 gallons. The chart below can help you quickly locate your Renegade’s fuel system specifications.
Proper fueling of your Renegade BU, interspersed with timely fuel system servicing, will not only save you money by improving your gas mileage and reducing the risk of faulty fuel system parts that need replacing, it will prolong the life of your Jeep.
