Hi,

first of all, it would be nice to have a minimal working example to
understand what is going on.

Second, the fact that GaugeXi[x] may still appear in you amplitude
despite using

GaugeRules -> {GaugeXi[Z] -> Infinity, GaugeXi[A] -> Infinity,
 GaugeXi[W] -> Infinity}

is actually mentioned in the FeynArts manual, p. 44

"Take care that the choices 0 (Landau gauge) and Infinity (unitary
gauge) actually imply a limit which is in general not correctly taken
with the naive GaugeRules substitution. In such a case the gauge
parameters should remain in the amplitude until after simplification,
and then substituted."

What you can do, is generate the same amplitude using unpatched FeynArts
(<<FeynArts`) on a clean kernel and check if the gauge dependence is
still there

FreeQ[amp,GaugeXi]

If yes, then it is the standard behavior of FeynArts that one has to
work around with suitable code.

Cheers,
Vladyslav
