Life of DPF, and cost of additive topup.
#1
Looking to buy my first vehicle with DPF (1.6 HDI 90). Hopefully my driving type will allow for regeneration often enough, but even with regeneration how long does a DFP last? From what I read it still builds up deposits that need to be washed out by high pressure water after a time??

How many miles does the additive last, and how much should I expect to pay for a topup.

I dont know how much it costs to refill, but it should last 100,000 miles.

"I dont know how much it costs to refill......"
A figure of around £600 ( Using Citroen main dealer) was being bandied about a while back.
I'm talking to my repairer today so I'll find out. HTH :-)

What is this nonsense, sounds a bit like Homoeopathy for cars? I think I will top mine up with diesel before it runs out.

1 litre lasts 100,000 miles??? that would work out at 1/100th of a ml per mile, or if we assume 50mpg that would be mixed in at a rate of 1ml for every 2 gallons that would be about a ratio of 1:9000

Ad if it really costs £600, then that would be about double the cost of a new DPF - they're taking the p!ss or at least selling it to us.

Yes!! If it's post late 2006 all Citroens with the 1.6HDi engine have them.

Hope not or it will be got rid off.

I think it is: Euro 4 engines only the 110 bhp version has a DPF and all the Euro 5 engines have a DPF

I dont think that it injects all the time, which is why it lasts a long time? Dunno what triggers it.....
