  1. XJ6 / XJ12 / XJR (X300, X330, X305, X306) 1994 – 1
    id recently purchased a one owner, 1997 Vanden Plas L model. When it runs it is smooth, and powerful, but when it stalls, it’s DEAD FRED!! I don‘t like the idea of waiting for a tow at anytime of the day, especially when it’s 10pm, and I have to wait 1.5 fir the tow! The red security light...

    My petrol cars are always getting Shell regular and every 4th tank it’s a treat with Shell V-power while the diesel Merc is always on V-Power Diesel. I know it’s more expensive, maybe 5-10 quid per tank than Supermarket fuels but cleaning blocked injectors, intake valves or DPF cost much more...
  3. XJ / XJR (X351) 2010 - 2019
    Just wondering whether any of you go for the “Super” or Premium versions of petrol / diesel? ... and whether it actually makes that much of a difference to performance or mpg? I’ve only put Tesco Momentum 99 in my new (to me) XJR and intend to try to keep it on the Super Unleaded. Similarly my...
  4. XF / XFR (X250) 2007 – 2015
    Hi, filled up the tank on my 3.0 diesel on Saturday...I think I remember seeing show full in the instrument panel. On Monday started the car OK but noticed the gauge shown between a quarter and half a tank.... Had thoughts of someone siphoning my tank, but now have driven some 65 miles and it...
  5. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hello Gang. My diesel Jag came with the fuel filter in a holder, but the holder is not attached to anything. Since it was only weighing it down I took the strain with some bailer twine so the assembly wasn't hanging about by its fuel pipes. I've never worked out where it should fix to. Maybe...
  6. XF (X260) 2015 - Present
    I recently purchased my 2016 Jaguar XF 35t Prestige, which was used, off-lease with ~39,500 miles. After about 3 days I got a message on the console telling me to check my gas cap! Upon inspection, I didn't see anything amiss. Three days later when I started the car there was a check-engine...
  7. XJ8 / XJR (X308) 1997 - 2003
    My beloved XJ8 Sport, 2001 has a corroded fuel pipe/feed pipe making it extremely dangerous to drive. Unfortunately these parts are no longer produced by Jaguar, and all my other sources seem to be out of stock too (including David Manners). NNA6082AH PIPE-FUEL X308 NND6103AD FUEL FEED...
  8. XK / XKR (X150) 2006 - 2014
    Hi all, having just purchased a 2009 XKR I was wondering what tyres people prefer. Mine is currently on Dunlop SP Sport Maxx with 6mm tread so have a while (or not) to decide what to run on. As an aside, do ppl use premium unleaded or don't bother? Cheers
  9. XJ (X350, X358) Aluminium Body 2003 - 2009
    Hello all, first post here so thankful for any help. Just Purchased a 2004 XJ8 with 104,000 miles on it – (shocks have been converted) everything seemed great it drove great the 40 minute ride from the dealer home – then went to fill the tank and after about 10 gallons went in lots of fuel...
  10. XJ / XJR (X351) 2010 - 2019
    Dear Forum Members, I have a peculiar problem that emerged 'out of the blue' last week! When fueling the car with Diesel, the fuel only gets into the tank at a rate of 2 liters a minute! It appears that a fuel flap that sits about 10 inches down the fuel entry pipe either doesn't 'disappear'...
  11. XK / XKR (X150) 2006 - 2014
    The XK manual recommends the use of 95 RON or higher on page 155 of the handbook. Some earlier models may have the information on a different page. It does also mention that although the minimum octane rating can be RON 91, the higher the octane rating, the better for optimal engine performance...
  12. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hi gang. My four pot diesel engine performance changes noticeably depending on what it's running on. My general approach has been to put half a tank of posh beepee fuel in every couple of times I hit reserve, I don't know why I'm so tight. The other day I put some megga expensive 5hell juice...
  13. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Not that I plan on making a habit of this, but if I should let my fuel supply dip into the reserve, how many miles roughly do I have left before I'm gone completely? Has anyone had bitter experience of this? Talking about a 2.0 diesel vehicle specifically. TIA.
  14. XF / XFR (X250) 2007 – 2015
    I've got an XF 3.0d on a 59 plate and have had the "Water In Fuel" warning come on. I checked the fuel in the filter by draining it and could see no evidence of water. So, I assumed that it would be the sensor (seems the place to start these days) and replaced it. The light didn't clear. I've...
  15. XJ8 / XJR (X308) 1997 - 2003
    I have a 2000 Vanden Plas and the fuel gauge constantly reads empty with the low fuel light on. It was not working when I purchased the car, so I figured it was just a bad sending unit. I bought a new sending unit and replaced it properly, but the gauge still doesn't work. I know the sending...
  16. X-Type (X400) 2001 - 2009
    Hi guys, I purchased an x type 2.0d sport a few weeks ago, I was just wondering how many miles do you get from a full tank? I filled up the car (around £65) and I only have been managing 430 miles. Seemed a bit low as my old zr diesel could get around 450 miles on just £45 worth of fuel. The...
  17. XK / XKR (X150) 2006 - 2014
    has anyone else had a leak between the fuel tank and fuel pump housing caused by the mounting studs fracturing?

    This subject has come up before with much hearsay and guessing, but no measured evidence had been given, for us to be able to draw any conclusions. Here is a study by Fifth Gear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=d8L-X89duEs By all means please add your own experience and conclusions.
  19. S-Type (X200, X202, X204, X206) 1999 - 2008
    So last night I put the F3 20amp fuse for the auxiliary fuel fired heater back into my S-Type 2.7d. I noted that it was supposed to be significantly colder this morning. When I bought it this summer I noticed in the history the previous owner had complained about fumes in the cabin. This was...
  20. XF / XFR (X250) 2007 – 2015
    Hi all I received a fuel low level warning alert today whilst driving on half a tank of diesel! The message appeared and disappeared on its own accord several times on an 80 mile round trip. Has anyone else seen this or know what it might be? Thanks, Jas
