    Diesel partial filter – confused

    Hi all from recent newbie.

    I find this site fab and usually it fills in a lot of blanks (lol) but today I’m confused!!!

    Basically I need to know if I have a DPF (diesel partial filter) or not.

    Now before you ask – yes I have checked posts etc and have found a lot of mixed answers. Mainly I can see most of you reckon the Sig, Vec EST and Vec auto have a DPF.

    Ok I think?!?!??!

    The problem is I have had my new VECCY since 23 dec last year (couple of weeks) and the dealer has told my TWICE (once before I checked here and again after I double checked) and the stealer insists I do NOT have a DPF?!?!?!?

    Now im confused. TBH – I am thinking in the tuning area (DTUK or similar) but I did not tell the stealer this, he kept asking me why I want to know “not thinking about tuning or re-map are we, as it voids the warranty”.I said “Oh no, – just wondering due to different MPG and filter changed etc.

    BTW – Car is 07 Veccy Elite 1.9 CDTI AUTO.

    Please help a confused newbie.

    Apologies if I could not find this if it has been posted before – please be gentile!!!!!!

    i was told by one dealer that my car had a DPF, but it definatly has not......
    as you have listed that is the general concensus i think....have you had a realy realy low fuel consumption figure, cos when they re-generate they use some fuel....afaik anyway

    Only had the car 2 weeks or so but.... my 1.9 design cdti was 52 - 55 mpg and the elite auto, i dont see much more than 41 mpg. I geared myself up to lose some MPG bt switching to auto but NOT that much. Surely the dealer has mis advised me

    Another sure fire way of checking is by running your finger on the inside of your exhaust, if there's no soot on your finger then you either clean your exhausts very well or you have a dpf.
