Is yours the V12? If so, that consumption is fantastic! How long have you had it cos 2 grand is cheap for one that looks tidy?
I’ve worked it out properly now and it’s actually 18.4mpg.
It is a V12, a fairly early (1982) HE. I bought it just over 3 years ago; its own thread is here: http://autoshite.com...-skizzers-xj-s/
It had been off the road for a long time so I’ve had to spend a bit on it, to be fair, mainly on freeing off and sorting the brakes, a gearbox actuator, some steering bits and refurbishing the injectors. A more competent DIYer with a lift (and more time) could have done all that themselves though. I did the ignition and headlining myself.
Cosmetics-wise and bodywork-wise — er, it’s had a wash with some Autoglym shampoo. Twice, actually, which for me is quite a lot in three years.
