New Mot Regulations

New Mot Regulations

Testing stations are now required to check that a dpf is fitted as part of the mot test, the vehicle will fail if the dpf has been removed when it originally had one.

Dpf’s have been in use for approx 20 years to meet european emission standards & to improve air quality

The DPF unit

The filter controls emissions & works by trapping particulate matter from the exhaust gases, & needs to be regenerated at certain times to burn off the soot/ash etc so performance & fuel consumption isn’t affected. When this can’t be achieved it needs to be cleaned professionally & that’s where we come in.
