Why is DPF cleaning so necessary?
The DPF or diesel particulate filter is a kind of "sieve" located in the exhaust pipe. Its task is to trap the pollution generated by the engine in the form of carbon particles so that it is not released into the atmosphere. In addition, European legislation requires diesel vehicles to be fitted with this anti-pollution filter. to ensure greater environmental protection and the elimination of the black smoke that we sometimes see coming out of exhaust pipes and which is often a reason for failing the MOT, for example.
While it is true that an engine generates very little pollution at steady speeds, if you are mainly driving in the city, we recommend that you occasionally take to the road and keep the car above 2,500 revolutions to regenerate the DPF filter and prevent it from becoming saturated.
