Guess what? The DPF light is on yet again (see pic)! This means that since leaving Drift Bridge garage for the final time, the DPF light has come on at:
The above mileages are documented with photo proof & do not include the 3 previous times the DPF light came on since the initial work was done at Drift Bridge - At each time the DPF has been cleared down to 0% soot level, & the light turned off.
Clearly something still isn’t right with the car, & now as well as us already having our suspicions regarding the turbo, it now looks like the DPF has been irreparably damaged following work carried out & the subsequent oil overfill issue.
Since the injector re-call the car has been constantly going into either passive or active re-gen & I’ve been lucky to get 350 miles to a tank of diesel (the last was less than 280), & at present I might get 350 again – That’s only 29MPG at best on mainly motorway runs! I’d be expecting at least 450 miles (37mpg) based on what was achieved before the injector swap & the subsequent issues.
Again, I just want to stress that I know you are not responsible for the issues with the car, & that the blame lies entirely with Drift Bridge servicing. I’m keeping you in the loop so that we can attempt to find a way to rectify this as soon as possible with the minimum of fuss.
