DPF Removal

What is the DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)?

Nearly all diesel-engined cars, vans, trucks and other commercial vehicles, built after 2006 have a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) fitted within the exhaust system. Quite a few vehicles have had them fitted since 2001 including Fiat, Peugeot and Citroen. Being a filter, it’s job is to capture and store soot particles produced during the engine combustion process from entering the atmosphere, then every so many miles the engine will enter a regeneration cycle which is supposed to clean the filter by burning the soot and turning it into ash.

Inevitably every DPF filter is going to clog up at some point. Almost all manufacturers will claim this will take a very long time, but as this technology is new, we will only discover over time just how long they will last. This is making diesel enthusiasts very nervous as they are certainly not cheap to replace.

A principal DPF concern is the fact that the diesel particle filter itself produces a blockage within the exhaust system. This in conjunction with the diesel catalytic converter results in several pounds per square inch of congestion and back pressure in your exhaust. Since adding the DPF to the exhaust system results in a reduction in fuel mileage, quite a few question the reason why the government chose to make this technology a requirement when it’s not even used in many parts of the world. Given that diesel available in the UK is all ultra low sulphur there’s not nearly as much pollutant matter produced by diesel engines. The addition of a diesel particulate filter has a tendency to make considerably more issues than it is designed to fix which explains why most people use a DPF removal service like DynoTune offers.
