Hi .

Your battery should not drain in this time frame , i have customers that leave there Jags at the airport for weeks and weeks and when they come back they get in and start .

You most likely have a parasitic drain on the battery .have your shop do as parasitic drain test .
What is typical with this car is the boot light shorting out and draining the battery.

No car or truck will drain its battery in two days a car will drain a battery at around 2-3% a day .

As said your local jag shop will have the equipment to check this out for you and find the parasitic drain ,like said all it takes is a bad boot light radio malfunction etc.

Please get back to me if needed.
