Diesel Particulate Filter Fluid addative (DPF) Refill
Approximate prices from around £100.00
Some diesel vehicles are fitted with an addative which is injected in to the fuel each time the fuel tank is refilled. This addative fulid helps clear the soot particals when the regenaration prosess takes place. This fluid needs to be refilled periodicallly & the DPF management system reset.
Dependent on how you refuel your vehicle depends on how long the fluid will last, if you fill your tank from almost empty this will last much longer as evey time you open the fuel cap to refuel the DPF system injects fluid into the fuel thus people who just add small amounts of fuel at a time this fluid will not last as long. this fluid on average should last around 60000 miles then will need to be refillled & the DPF system resetting.
