    Default Questions about new purchase!

    Hi

    Had a 07 1.8 Design for about 10 days now and love it! I have 2 questions if anyone can help

    1. Earlier my "Electro-hydraulic power assisted steering" warning on the dash came on. Had just started the engine and was doing a tight turn to start driving when it happened. Turned the engine off and back on again and is fine. Is this anything to worry about? Or should i only worry if it keeps happening?

    2. The estimated range that the vehicle can do until the fuel is empty. How accurate would you say yours is?

    Many thanks

    Matt

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default

    1. only if the light continues to come on, and not go off with a key cycle

    2. I can get 500 miles + out of a tank (1.8 non VVT) if I don't drive like it's stolen. Not sure how accurate the computer is, as I don't have one.

    1. Thought so, cheers

    2. It's looking like i am going to get 460 - 480 miles out of it. Just wandered if anyone gets to 0 knowing that they can still do 20-30 miles etc.

    Thanks

    I put 50 quid worth in my 1.8 SRi VVTi earlier when i had 47 miles left and the guage was almost in the red bit. after the fill up it was just short of a full tank and was reading about 410 miles remaining - should be enough to get me to Santa Pod and back!
