    I believe you can soak the whole thing in alloy wheel cleaner overnight, then blast it with a pressure washer, although, I just drilled a 12mm hole straight through the middle of mine and its cured all my DPF woes. She smokes like a ***** during the regen cycle (10-15 mins) but its a lot better than limp mode every few weeks!!

    How much did it cost for the dpf change it would of been cheaper to bash insides out the. Get a remap 200quid and never have dpf problems again plus better power and fuel economy

    Default dpf

    The cost was £460 fitted, now its done i will probably hang on to it, so short of knocking a hole in it then a remap its not a massive difference, just need to make certain it gets a good blast every now and again

    And the aircraft I work on burn 7.5tonnes of fuel in 1hour 20mins flight and there oil breathers are the size of my arm and the smoke they pour out mate my car probs pollutes less in a year than 2 flights of a tornado and times that by the 70 odd jets of tornado flying every day that's alot of fumes and fuel with zero emissions devices on plus all the diesel ground equipment with straight through exhausts the power sets use a 3.0 litre v8 diesel with no cats or dpfs so my car is quite clean I think

    Rant over

    As Asda say 'Every little helps'

    Emissions are getting stricter (Which is why new cars are less poluting) and as the older cars die it will get better and better.

    Look at the data that cars will have to meet in the future:



    Particulate matter (PM) is the main thing they are trying to get down (Hence DPF's) as thats one of the causes of cancer.


    Oh and aircraft are getting better too, The company I work for during the week makes aircraft instruments and have been designing (And now being sold) lighter and more energy efficient instruments so that the aircraft can use the energy to propel the aircraft and not have to use so much to run the electrics and etc.
