    Default DPF removal???

    Was thinking of removing the DPF from my 09 160 cdti, I live in northern Ireland where we only have 2 short motorways, so I am very rarely getting the chance to let the DPF regenerate. I am seeing an average fuel economy of 27-29mpg!!!! I have spoken to a couple of mechanics that say the DPF can be removed with no need to touch the ECU. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    You need to modify / remap the Vectra ECU to remove the DPF so I would of thought that the Insignia will be the same, also remember that your Vx Warranty will be voided if you do
