This can be broken down into two categories:
Yes DPF Cleaning works!
No DPF Cleaning does not work and I wasted my time and money.
Lets start with the No it doesn’t work-
DPF cleaning will not work for the following
There are some quality additives that assist in maintaining an already working DPF by helping in limiting soot production etc, but we are yet to see a fuel additive successfully rectify a blocked DPF as promised on some labels.
This grinds our gears as unfortunately the additive industry is fairly unregulated meaning they get away with a load of bullshit promises wasting your time and money knowing full well that $29.95 is catering to your “ahhhhh well chuck er in and see, what have we got to lose” mentality.
$29.95 isn’t a huge amount of outlay for most and not worth chasing up when it does fuck all but to these snakes, repeat that transaction 1000’s of times this adds up to huge profits.
Now for the YES! “DPF cleaning worked and saved me thousands of dollars because I didn’t have to purchase a new filter and the reason why it blocked was diagnosed so I won’t be inconvenienced again”
Cleaning of all and any Exhaust after treatment parts including DPF’s will work guaranteed if the services of a specialised company with proper equipment and trained staff are employed & the component is deemed serviceable through pre-work diagnostics
This company if like ours should provide before and after data, visual proof in a report and on-going support to educate the customer on ways to prevent this issue re-occuring.
PREVENTION IS THE BEST SOLUTION
