Additional info, monitoring the DPF burn situation after ECU update, driving 90 miles a day for last three days and getting good fuel economy 52MPG+ but then, getting a DPF regen everyday, oh no, low fuel economy, i hope doesnt mean another ECU update that is full of bugs!
You`ll know when it has started, the car will run like a bag of spanners, on the move the car will be sluggish, at a stand still the auto stop and go will not kick in, the engine will run quite rough at a standstill with engine revs hovering between 900 to 1000rpm and will not go down to the normal 600rpm at a standstill. last but not least the rear heated wind screen will activate although the light will not show on the selected switch.
When you are driving 450 to 500 miles a week you get to know.
@mitsimad I honestly can't say I've noticed any of this, so I hope that it's actually doing something and not just silently clogging-up! It seems daft that there's not some sort of indication on the dashboard, as I wonder what happens if it's still in the middle of a regen when I pull up at home and turn-off the ignition?
The heated rear screen coming on sounds like a bizarre 'symptom'. Is this a glitch, or is there some sort of logic behind it that you know of?
So, any idea if it b*ggers it up if I unkowingly switch off the ignition whilst it's still in the middle of a regen? As I do a few days a week where each of my journeys are only 2-4 miles, I'm guessing there's a high liklihood of this happening to me.
