This is my second sport covered 82000 miles in my 2017 no DPF problems ran on V Power..My tip would be from now on would be to run the car on Shell V- power or equivalent, I’ve had my DS 2.0 180 diesel for just over 5 years & 37k miles, not had a single problem with the DPF etc having run it exclusively on V-power diesel, (other forum members have reported similar results)
second tip would be to keep your eye open for signs that the car is doing a regen (burning smell when stationary, poor instant fuel consumption on display) if you notice these do not switch the engine off & keep driving at a constant speed above 40mph for 40mins or so (untill fuel consumption returns to normal).
you will find many posts on this forum if you use the search button on this subjec.
My nose & eyes 😆Can still hardly believe that owners get no indication of when a Regen. is in operation!!
If I knew when it was happening, I could easily drive on for a few more minutes to allow sequence to complete. What kit do you folks use to see a Regen?
So you need to always have the instantaneous fuel cons. screen showing to see when a Regen is happening. What sort of figure are we talking about here?My nose & eyes 😆
In the first instance from smell & significant rise in fuel consumption from dash read out.
If you sense it might be doing one Don’t turn the engine off but when stationary open your door & usually you can feel the heat being given off by the DPF underneath the car
