As my 2004 XK8/XKR (100) does not get used during our winter months, a fuel stabiliser seams to be recommended to be added to the E10 petrol (re comments written in January 2022 Jaguar Enthusiast Mag - page 34) . Any comments from anyone that has done this?
Thank you ...> Alan

The last paragraph of that particular article says 'the best and simplest advice to avoid problems is to ensure you fill your Jaguar's fuel tank with 0% ethanol super unleaded petrol before winter storage'.

Personally, I will only use said fuel in the future. Despite living in the U.K. and being mindful of the damage salted roads can do I still take my 2000 XKR out on sunny, dry winter days as I believe this to be beneficial.

I always use Esso Synergy and understood that it contained 5% ethanol but seeing your response I checked the Esso site and, even though all of their pumps indicate that it contains 5% ethanol, this is only in Devon, Cornwall, North Wales, North England and Scotland everywhere else is 0%. According to Esso,, it is the only fuel which does not contain ethanol.

I only use the premium unleaded in my XKR anyway, only because this was advised to me by the indie specialist I bought it from

Petrol only lasts around 3 months before it loses its zing, no matter whether its E5 or 10.

Best use a stabiliser or keep driving the motor ;)
