Personally I always drive until the regen is complete.
I find it fairly obvious when its happening, but I know others think theirs has never done one!
Me too. Takes about 5-10 mins. Mines an auto so I use the manual gears to keep it over 2000 revs. I know it's finished when it starts idling at 850 again.

So, correct me if I'm wrong.

A two minute drive to the corner shop becomes an expensive 10 minute drive as you need to spend another eight minutes driving around waiting for the DPF to 'do it's stuff'

I'm slowly going off the idea of buying a derv powered car. ::) ::) ;)

No, it won’t start a regen after just 2 mins. It must have reached operating temp for starters.  :y

Got a VW, Audi, Skoda or Seat? I have full Diagnostic software VCDS to read and program your car. Need something enabling? Perhaps full diagnostic? Drop me a PM. Can diagnose in Camberley or Osterley Area.

What happens if a whippet loving derv owner from the North of England says "fu*k it, I'm switching the engine off right now because Emmerdale Farm is just starting?".

So why drive around wasting fuel when it isn't necessary?.... :-\ :-\

How often do DFP 'regens' take place?

I was under the impression the 'diesel enthusiast'  was inconvenienced about once a year or every 12000 miles. I'm now guessing it's more than that.

About every 2-300 miles. It's no big deal, it just does it.

You will soon come round again when the resale values plummet as successive governments punish diesel and then petrol drivers over battery powered cars. :y

I'm hoping hydrogen fuel cell cars take over from petrol and derv when it finally happens. I don't think electric 'milk float' like cars are the way forward.They are the distant past.

Anyway, by the time this all takes place I'll probably be six feet under and past caring. :)

I hope you have made a note in your will to specify petrol powered hearse. Imagine the ignominy of arriving at a sedate pace and then the mourner having to wait while the hearse did a regen , the finish of which would be marked by a puff of white smoke issuing from the rear of the vehicle ( a 2.2 stretch limo diesel XF?)  ;D ;D

You'd be late for your own funeral as when arriving at the cemetery/crematorium the hearse driver would say "hang on a minute I'll have to drive about for another 10mins or so while the regen's complete" :D ;D

The XJ is the first car I've had with DPF.  I've yet to notice it doing one, though I suspect it must have done by now.

It has lights on dash, but believe it only illuminates (amber) if it has really needed to do one, but not been able to. Or red if it really, really, really needs to do one.  I've only seen lamp come on as part of the ignition sequence.


That said, given my piss poor economy, maybe its constantly doing one.  When I got home the other night, it certainly stank when I got out.
