    My 2012 VW Crafter on occasions when coming to a standstill from driving the idle revs instead of 750-800 are nearer 1000 ...


    My cluster has one of these lights :-

    But it is never on when this symptom occurs ...

    My 2008 Crafter used to do the same, it never had any DPF issues in the year I owned it nor did the DPF light come on in dash ...
    Perhaps a normal VAG trait ...
