2012 Jaguar XF: Zero Range?

August 06, 2012

Today I drove our supercharged Jaguar XF until its trip computer told me it had zero miles of fuel range. I then immediately pulled into a gas station and filled the tank. It took 16.680 gallons of premium. Jag says the XF has a 18.4 gallon fuel tank. In other words, I theoretically could have driven another 30 or so miles until the sedan would have run dry. That's a pretty big cushion Jag has built into the system.

I also want to thank Jag's engineering team for allowing the range to count all the way down to zero. Too many cars default to a useless message of "low fuel range" at somepoint, which of course defeats the purpose of the range display. If it's going to do that, a needle pointing to an E serves the same purpose.
