    Have you got a DPF?

    Sounds suspiciously like the DPF regenerating....

    I would have thought so....

    Easy way to check - do you have a trip computer? If so, flick it to inst consumption. If the DPF is burning, consumption at idle will be anywhere between 0.5 and 0.9 gal/hr, where it should be 0.1 or 0.2 gal/hr.
