As with any filter, the DPF has to be cleaned regularly to maintain its performance. The cleaning process is known as
‘Regeneration’ or a ‘Burn’ and is needed when the Particulate Filter capacity reaches a predetermined level. The good
news is that Regeneration is performed automatically and is self-managed by the vehicles Engine Management System
This process is known as ‘Active Regeneration’ & there is no need for any customer intervention, all you do is keep
driving normally.
