I have a jeep grand cherokee with diesel engine. Automatic does not recognize it as such and continuously estimates fuel economy that is much lower than what the diesel engine gets. I have entered the VIN and it still does not know the right engine. Is there a fix for this?

Hi Robert,

Thanks for getting in touch.

Please open the Automatic application and click on the settings tab in the top right. From there, scroll down to your Jeep Grand Cherokee and select it. Within that page, you will see Fuel Grade. Select that and click the My car uses diesel fuel option.

As noted on that page, past trips will not change, but you should start to see improvement going forward. If you had already done this, please let us know.
