October 2017 News Round Up

Seth and Clark with Millers Oils


Welcome to the latest Xclusively Jaguar News Round Up!

Never work with animals or children, I was always warned! ……….. but we did and we got away with it, and as you can see we all had great fun into the bargain! ………. so this months cover picture features my two grandsons recommending Millers Oils while appropriately dressed in their ‘Pistoneeze’ T-shirts.

……. and before anybody questions it, the oil went in a Triumph TR6, not the Jaguar XJ40 XJR pictured here, which takes 10w40

Next month we will report on our trip to Hull where we attended a Millers Oils Seminar and picked up a lot of useful information on how good quality oil will improve the performance and longevity of your Jaguar – or any other car, for that matter!
