Morning all... new to this forum and new to Jag ownership.  Historically been an Audi and then BMW driver but new job has given me a decent allowance each month.  Purchased an XF over the weekend and collect it next week.  To say im excited is an understatement! went for the 278bhp engine and cant wait to get hold of it.

Are the MPG figures realistic?  Any suggestions/recommendations in terms of maintaining my new Jag?

Welcome to the Jaguar Owners Club Jamie, and congratulations on your new cat :yes:

Manufacturer's MPG figures are always optimistic in my experience so I don't think those for the XF will be any more accurate. :whistling1:

As with any of these beasts. I'd take any initial maintenance state with a pinch of salt and commence my own maintenance regime at "Day One". A thorough service would be my suggestion. I imagine one or two XF owners will be along soon with more specific recommendations.

Welcome to the club, Jamie.

Like Paul, I never rely on the manufacturers mpg figures as They are not calculated while travelling on a road, but rather on a test bed - a rolling road plus some time on a track.  The car is often low on weight, with as much as possible taken out, such as spare wheel, jack etc and only with a couple of gallons of fuel in the tank.

The best way of checking mpg is out on the road driving normally and if SWMBO is in the passenger seat, driving  a bit slower!

I get 45 mpg on a long trip, and 30 mpg round the city as reasonable good.

Regards,

Peter.

Thanks for the replies lads.  I feel like a child in a sweet shop at the moment.  Jag Tamworth are giving it a service and MOT and should have it late next week - buzzing!

Any known issues or common faults I should look out for?  I've driven Quattro Audi's and 3l BMW's but never been so excited to get a motor lol
