Jaguar dealers throughout the world are being asked to cease sales of 2006 and 2007 XJ sedans, due to a fuel leak that has left many new owners with fuel-coated garage floors.

By most reports, the leak is from the fuel tank itself, not the filler pipe or fuel lines running to the engine. Although there is no estimate of how many sedans are currently on the road, dealers have been asked to suspend the sale of vehicles with VINs G49701 through H13209.

Tim Watson, Jaguar's spokesperson, was unable to elaborate on whether the problem is a manufacturer issue or a supplier issue, but as this is written, Jag is not ruling out a recall of the XJ.
