    I'm sure you're correct, regarding fuel economy, but "quarter of the mpg"? I think a 3 litre petrol will get better than 12mpg!

    Have you ever driven a 3 litre petrol I wonder? It begs the question about what is a real Jaguar? An asthmatic 2 litre diesel, or a rorty 3 litre petrol? Grace. space and ???
