As per the Jag manual, minimum octane to put in is 91. You may get away with putting in 89 and then every 3 or 4th time, put in 91 (or higher).

Jaguar recommends the highest grade of gas for the best overall performance. usually this is between 91 and 95 octane, however many of our Jaguar customers just put the mid- or low grade fuel in the car. Now you can do this but the performance and in most cases the gas mileage wont be as good as the premium gas.
The way I see it is if jaguar did all that testing and engineering for that car and they came to the conclusion that it works best with high octane then i would do it. But hey, its your choice, i hope i helped you out.

I think you can buy a code reader from most any parts store for $40-60 and use it to find and reset the codes in your Jag. Good luck!

I have a 55 plate 2.5 S Type. I bought it from a local Jag dealer, i had a few small problems but they sorted them out straight away. As they are not selling cars you will be able to get a good deal i would only use a Jag dealer ask for 1 or 2 years free servicing i got it. Dont buy a high milage vehicle it will cost you more in the long run. I love my car PS Get the highest spec you can ie SE plus.Hoped this helped.

I have a 2003 Jaguar x-type..I am getting a transmission Fault error and the Jag manual says it means degradation of transmission operation....What does this mean? My Jag will not start.


SOLUTION for x-type Transmission fault error
I had this very same problem. My 02 x-type would get transmission fault code and then shut down into limp mode. If I turned the key off, shifted gears a few times and waited I could start up again and sometimes drive for several miles before the code came back. GOOD NEWS, I thought maybe the vechicle was overheating the tranny or something like that and then after it cooled down I could drive some more. I discovered that my gas station had switched to the 10% ethanol addative about the same time I started experiencing "strange" mechanical issues. I decided to try switching my gas to the non-ethanol gas from a Phillips 66 station that advertised 100% REAL GAS. The problems mysteriously dissappeared!!!! Remember that you MUST use PREIUM gas as per the MFR. Well the 02 3.0 can't handle the 10%ethenol in it's gas. Something else you can try if you can't find REAL GAS is to use the OCTANE boost from your local auto parts store. Pay close attention to which brand you buy since some can harm your fule system. As a side note; I also own an 04 s-type with a 3.0 under the hood. It looks different from my 3.0 and has no problem running on the ethenol added gasoline. However after the horrible mechanical experience I had with the ethenol in the x-type, I now use 100% real gas in both. I have been transmission fault free for 5 months now.
