Dpf Regeneration

15 May 2013 - 08:32 AM


I have just purchased a 2012 1.6 and I wanted to ask about the regeneration process of the dpf. I work nine miles from home and a lot of the journey is 50-60 mph on empty b roads. I am an environmental health officer so I also do town driving with stop start when I visits businesses etc but that also includes trips of 25 miles or so across the district for visits so it's a mixture of driving. I do also do longer motorway trips 60 miles or so to see family some weekends.

No doubt the dpf regeneration will happen at some point but is it safe to turn the car off when it's doing it? Will the fans just keep running?.

I do make a point on some of my journeys to keep it in a lower gear and rev it harder.

In hindsight maybe I should have gone for the petrol although I do love the way the diesel drives :-)

Hello all,

Sorry to ask a question on my first post.

I have just purchased a 2012 1.6tdci and I love it. I used to have a 2009 1.6 zetec petrol and I am a big ford fan and always have been.

Really happy with the new car but I have one question. It has the standard stereo so not the Sony one and my iPod works but I cannot find a way for it to play specific albums or artists through the speech command. Is it possible to do this? Whenever I try and get it to play a track it just says what track number.
