The Original OEM Jaguar Hydraulic Fluid is no longer available. What is a compatible, Jaguar acceptable Hydraulic Fluid?

If you can find the spec for the original fluid then you can find a fluid that is compatible.

I would check and see if fluid for the XK8 would work --- http://www.jagbits.com/

If none of those suggestions work, a top grade jack oil might work just fine. Check out Auto-Zone, Advanced Auto, O'Riley's and NAPA
