In Topic: Info On Dpf (Diesel Particulate Filter)

Ok, I'd really love to do this, but just worried about being caught out on the mot.

Ok, so by doing that, does it affect the emissions? Thinking about the mot.

I was thinking about this again this morning.

 

And then I remembered, that before I had the fiesta tdci, I had a 2006 Renault Clio tdci, which I believe also had a DPF.

 

Again, i was trundling around town exactly like i have been with the fiesta and now the focus, and i had that car for about 2 years, and didn't have a problem with that either,

 

On one hand I think I'm going to be spending quite a bit of money on it, but on the other hand I think back to previous cars with dpf's and didn't have a problem and that was without motorway driving on a regular basis.

 

There is a good thing to come out of this though, and I have learnt a few things. As long as you learn something it's not wasted.

I have no idea when the fiesta DPF was going to fail. 

 

However, i had that car nearly 3 years, and im wondering if people are over reacting with the DPF.

 

If for example, the same thing happened with my current focus, and the DPF failed in 3 years time and needed a clean, I'd be happy with that. 

 

What I am concerned about is something nobody can really answer. 

 

How many miles will my DPF last doing short journeys?

 

I am now going to start doing a weekly run up the motorway, although, i have read several times now, that the DPF is less reliant on the engine revs, and more reliant on a constant speed. many companies quoting 40mph for 10 mins.

 

 

All things considered, my next car will 100% be a petrol engine.
