An overloaded diesel particulate filter (DPF) is expensive to replace – not to mention the time spent wasted thanks to a lengthy stay in the workshop when problems need to be resolved.

That’s where expert solutions from DR Automotive can help. Our TUNAP DPF cleaning services are designed to keep you moving and ensure your car continues to perform at optimal levels, rather than undertaking costly replacement. After all, prevention is better than cure.

How does a diesel particulate filter work?

All new diesel cars are now required to be fitted with a DPF, which aims to cut emissions by catching soot (diesel particulates) in the exhaust.

To maintain the filter’s performance, this soot must be emptied in a process called regeneration. However, incomplete regeneration and soot build-up over time can cause significant problems including lack of power and high fuel consumption.

If regeneration is interrupted and soot loading continues to increase, replacement of the filter is inevitable – at a potential cost of between £600 and £4,000 depending on the make and model of your car (plus labour and diagnostic time).

There is an alternative: Fast and efficient diesel particulate cleaning rather than replacement.

Here at DR Automotive, we use a patented cleaning system from TUNAP, which offers the following benefits:

  • Huge cost savings
