You can tell when the DFP recycle is running as the fuel consumption rises whilst stationary from 0.1 gals per hour when its off upto 0.4 gals per hour when its on. The clouds of burning oil smoke billowing from under the bonnet even more noticable at night with the lights nicely illuminating the haze. Ive even had people alongside pointing at the front of the car - I guess they are worried it's going to catch fire! The stench of oil smoke also gives it away even Why does the DFP recycle need to com on when I have just driven 120 miles in approaching 2 hours on the M4 and M5 ?
Reliability has also been a big issue with this one - its the first car has actually broken down without any warning and left us at the side of a pitch black motorway since I had a Rover in the early 1990's.
Anyone else having similar smokey DPF recycling events with the 2.2?
