    You should get a spanner light on then get really bad MPG, was that 730 all in.

    Thats not bad to be honest.

    that's all in, still hurt though, i have a warranty on the car, they said it was wear and tear, that's what hurts.

    the reason for writing post is that cars back together but the garage is having probs with dpf, cant get it to regen, they think its too full, tech 2 theni suppose. i have had the car for 1 1/2 years and have never noticed it do a regen, but it must have. was is knackered when i bought the car. cars only done 69k, 54k when i bought it. i do a fair bit of motor way miles and i do not hang around. vauxhall say you get a light, local garage say should get something. But what? i seem to get nothing.

    Even if the warranty company claims "wear and tear" they should still have paid out for the failed component that was replaced

    In my experience of 2 years of ownership of my 1.9 CDTi 150 Auto, I have seen a light on my dash (once) when it is doing a regen, it looked like a bulb filament in orange flashing.

    I also when through a regen just 4 days ago but no light appeared, just sounded rough and MPG was considerably down.

    There is a light telling you when it regens, in the owners manual near the front.

    light does not always flash if one does its the glow plug light but due to the amount of people that dont RTFM (read the ****ing manual) vx disabled this in a software update for the ecu so its quite possible your car will give no indication other than reduced economy
