    Have farady pouches, same issue on FPace.

    But I'm sad.... went to fill up and fuel filleris seized shut. Jaguar assistance on way. Must be record, 1st call after 3hours of ownership. I hope/suspect it's just sticky from lack of use, can't have been fuelled much for 1,000 miles in two years!

    Still a bit of a downer....

    You'd have through the dealer would have put some fuel in her for you, then they would have spotted the issue. Just a big inconvenience for you

    They did put about 100 miles worth yesterday and it was fine allegedly... that's why I think its just sticky shut, I can hear and feel the lock actuating in the filler... maybe I should know after three of them that Jaguars are sensitive about things

    While queuing at petrol station the guys in white Astra van in front, fuelled and then legged it without paying, I thought they were going to reverse into me... its been a stressful day!

    Good, you're sorted then

    The fuel flap is a non issue, just wait for Jaguar assist, get it sorted fuel up and driiiiiiiiive and enjoy

    When Mrs RavolvoR does her dance, kill her with kindness and smiles, give her nowhere to go lol

    Filler flap lock is a bit out of synch... when car is locked, flap is unlocked.. when car is unlocked flap is locked! Assist guy disconnected it so I can enjoyyyyyyyyy filled car up and now can play, drive and just chill. This car is smoooooooth... so much nicer to drive than the FPace! Garage will deal with flap in due course. I think a car with so little mileage in 2 years has stood a lot, that's never good for any car, so a few minor glitches like this are fine, after all... I saved almost as much money as my first house cost!
