I saw this media report which highlights the changes in the 2012 compass.

http://media.chrysler.com/newsrelease.do?id=11367&mid=4

What interests me is the new calibration to the FD2 in the 2012, Is this something that will be able to be replicated by a dealer in my 2011 North editition with FD2.

I am currently lucky if i can get close to 500 km per tank with its current calibration.

Let me know what you think.

New for 2012, the Jeep Compass sports three new exterior colors: True Blue Pearl Coat, Copperhead Pearl Coat and Rescue Green Pearl Coat. Calibration improvements to the available continuously- variable transmission II (CVT2) provide drivers with better launch acceleration, smoother deceleration when coasting from 25 miles per hour (mph), improved pedal responsiveness and reduced engine revolutions per minute (rpm) when accelerating at mid-throttle.
lol i bet you these "improvements" are all computers updates.:) so 400 km = 248.548 miles..i get about 300 mi. = 482.803 km per tank. There's barely any improvement in the gas mileage with the 2012s...
The Jeep Compass’ 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a five-speed manual transaxle in front-wheel drive configuration delivers 23 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
Currently the 2011 gets 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. lol one more MPG in the city.

Compass features a standard 2.0-liter World Engine for the 2012 Jeep Compass Sport and Latitude models that provides 158 horsepower (117 kW) and 141 lb.-ft. (191 N•m) of torque coupled with the continuously-variable transmission (CVT2), and delivers excellent 23 mpg in the city, and 29 mpg on the highway when mated to the five-speed manual transmission.
This is the same as the 2011s.

next time your get an oil change ask your dealership is there any computer update they can apply to the car.

You are most likely right about the update, I will ask next time.

I still wish the dealer explained the impact of FDII on fuel economy when I was shopping around.

I keep wishing that one day I will wake up and there will be a magic fix to the 20 mpg curse, If i had have known it was going to be so bad I might have looked at a Wrangler.
