How to Look After Your Vehicle’s DPF

There are two types of regeneration: passive and active. Passive regeneration normally takes place at higher speeds, when the engine is running at higher revs.

If the DPF can’t regenerate passively, the car’s onboard computer will have to take measures to prevent the filter from clogging. This is when the problem starts occurring.


So here are a few tips on how you can keep your DPF clean and trouble-free.
