Hi all, 

I recently purchased a 2013 1.6 dCi 360 4x4 and have a quick question.

I read Nissan have moved the DPF up towards the engine with the aim of removing some common DPF issues, however, how do you know when the DPF is doing a regen?

I have done circa 250 miles since I picked it up and driving can be 15 miles a day upwards, including some 20 mile round trips on motorway.

How do I know when the car is doing a regen, does a light come on at all?

All you tend to read is negative comments regarding DPFs, however from my research this is not the case with new engines in QQ range, why is that?

Cheers

Not sure, but I damn well hope it's true.  First diesel QQ on order, just as the government finally wakes up to the sooty issue and realises they can tax the cr@p out of diesel drivers Cry.

I don't know why Nissan don't want drivers know when regeneration is in progress. Trucks have a light to inform drivers when DPF regenerates. Anyway, you can notice it when your car has suddenly higher fuel consumption and loose a bit of power. If you stop during the soot burning (regeneration) you can sense weird smell from exhaust as well.
