[Warning Light] Additive low ( DPF )
So, just reached 100k and got a warning - Additive low (DPF ) so anyone else had this and what did you do ?

I can get the additive fitted or another option is possible DPF delete and map as although its not a DPF issue how long until it is ?
You can top up your bag with eloys fluid its not expensive but it is extremely corrosive and you must wear gloves and eye protection. When this is done you need to get someone to reset the warning.
From what I read, you can use your car "ignoring" this indication for the maximum of two full diesel tanks - that is the amount of reserve of additive the system contemplates. After that you start running your engine with no additive in the diesel, meaning you risk plugging the dpf filter irreversibly, and then you have to forcefully replace the dpf. The EOLYS additive topping is, as polar said, a task you can do yourself, but the resetting of the additive level on the BSI has to be done using the Lexia/diagbox interface (Or at a dealer). There are some versions of the liquid itself (this depends on how old your car is), and the way it can be topped. Some use the bag system, other have a plastic have to figure these details out if you are thinking on doing it by yourself.

Take a look here:
I think we may have already discussed this .
It won't be long before the dpf is finished anyway, you can get an exchange one from Citroen, I would not fit aftermarket , they are poor quality.
Filling the tank is a little fiddly, but easy enough. You will need diagbox to clear the light & reprogram the additive Ecu .
