Hi Guys

I apologise if this has been asked or discussed before or posted in the wrong section. If so please just show me a link to the forum and I will delete this topic.

My DPF filter needs to be topped up with Eolys fluid. However I have read that some members have bought 3litres for 100 however no one has said where this can be bought.

Ford are quoting me 258.50 for them to top this up and clear the ECU light. I think this is far too much condsidering they are telling me when they order this fluid they have to buy it in a quantity that covers 3 cars, rather than individual car. However I have spoken to one of the mechanics that can top up it for me for a score if I can provide the Eolys fluid.

I've looked about online but this DPF is one pain in the arse!

Thanks for your time.

Eolys fluid is expensive in itself. About £30+ per litre. You can usually find a few on sale on ebay.
Unfortunately, its not just a case of topping up the Eolys. This tank has a separate "counter" and its computer needs to be reset, and to do this is a Fords-only job. So, if you did it yourself, you could top up the fluid, reset the ECU light with an OBD-II reader, but as far as the Eolys computer is concerned, its still low. The light would probably come back on right away.

Yeah it's ridiculas, i managed to get it sorted though. I phoned a smaller Ford dealership and they're only wanting 140! Some difference eh?!
