2005 Jaguar S Type R with 50,000 MI

engine at fault) I shut it off and turn it back on and
it was working fine once I got home I tested my
battery and a couple other things I realized that my
battery is pretty weak ( 9 years old and Under 12
volts) so I bought a new battery took it out for a
test drive same thing happen driving around 35

on car is still running but if you try to speed up it
would not work it would only go about 4 miles an
hour as if you put a  car into a drive and just let it

I realize it sounds crazy but if u put in Chevron Supreme gasoline in it, it should eliminate ur issue. I thought it was bs until I tried it and it worked like a charm. I now alternate between 89 and 91 octane and have had no problems since where I was experiencing the same issue several times per a single trip.
