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.
Yes, it does stink after doing one. If the astra's DPF is getting critical after a few partial or aborted cleans, a message comes up saying "Keep driving, filter blocked" or similar.

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

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

Back in 2012 we had a new insignia sri estate and it was a pain in the arse to be honest as no matter how long I kept the revs up driving etc it would constantly be regenerating no matter how hard I drove it. and in the end was glad to take it back to the dealer and hand them the keys.

On the insignia there is a mod whereby you connect an LED to the heated mirror wire and it comes on when itís doing a regen.

Not sure if this would work with yours. I have never noticed it doing one on mine in the 7 months ive had it. I have an icarsoft code reader that can tell me how much % soot accumulation and also miles since last regen which is normally around the 300 mile mark.

Having to regenerate twice per tankful seems rather poor :-\
