It had a service including all the filters changed before Christmas. The only filter which didn't get done was the fuel filter as they didn't think they could do it without cracking the plastic housing because it was so tight. They have ordered the housing in preparation for changing the fuel filter on Tuesday and are going to check the error codes at the same time so I will ask to have the additive level checked too. I can see from the history the fuel filter hasn't been changed since late 2009.

No, everything is fine on the dash. I looked through the owners manual and there is no light specifically for anything DPF related or the additive being low. I guess when there's a problem the engine management light just comes on, which it has twice but only for until I stopped the car and then it's gone by the next journey.

The fuel filter is way past it's lifespan.

I will be changing mine at least every year now after seeing how filthy mine was the last time around.

The fuel filter has been changed and was in desperate need of it. But unfortunately the problem remains and if anything is slightly worse, it's quite ropey and jumpy even before the power goes. Also I've noticed that revving it high, such as red lining it through 1st,2nd then 3rd seem to bring the power loss on. Does that hint at anything?

Try a good injector flush like Wynns or BG244 from eBay.

if you dont want to wait for ebay, pop to your nearest kwik fit, it seems they have started to stock it. At £20 its well worth the investment, made quite a difference on my car along with an oil / oil filter change...
