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 :-)
