    Has anyone done the re-gen cycle on there motor? And has the mpg improved after it? Im going to do it once i get time at the weekend. Also when do you know if its done or not? Is there a bang or puff off black smoke out the back?

    ive done it a ew times cos im too tight to take the dpf off.no improvement in mpg, but becomes a little sharper.Smells like burnt bakelite.when its too bad, a light pops on the dashboard

    How do you force it to happen? I thought it just did it when it needed to when the engine was hot enough (ie long motorway journey at 80!)?
