Hi Kat,

Glad Your enjoying the XF.

I have X type 2007 which takes old gas, had that done in May.

Not an expert but did check on several sites that all confirm info below

I found a reference that Xf 2016 onwards use the new R1234YF.on Warren Garage web site.

The Garage you take it to should be able to tell you what you need.

Most cars on the road use the traditional R134A gas.  However, all cars manufactured from 2017 onwards use the new gas R1234YF. This new gas produces 98% fewer pollutants than the traditional R134A, however, unfortunately it is significantly more expensive than R134A.   The gas is not interchangeable,.

hi

if you look under the bonnet, slam panel area it will tell you which gas it has and how much there is

if its R134a, then groupon has a deal for a regas for £35.99
