    It seems this technology is pretty poor even by the Experts standards.

    Hope the link below will at least answer some of the DPF victims on this forum:

    Yeah, good old Euro regs....

    Thanks to DPF regeneration my MPG on the way to work tonight dropped again....I usually get around 45mpg at 70mph down the motorway. Tonight, for about 10 miles, I got a massive 22mpg! Then in a split second, it jumped back up to around the 45 mark again.

    Thank god it doesn't happen every journey!

    No, the technology is very good, well understood and works very well under certain conditions.

    What is difficult is applying this technology to mass produced cars, where each and every duty cycle will be different. Having a good control strategy is vital for these to operate correctly, at least they are not reliant on passive regen only, like the original units for heavy duty vehicles.

    I know a fair amount about diesel engine emission aftertreatment, having worked in industry in this very sector for over 10 years.....

    Not just DPF, also SCR systems probably. That's what is going to be needed for Euro 6. LEZs are also coming more common throughout Europe.
