    Quick one guys, how do I check my actual and calculated soot levels using VCDS? Tried searching with no joy!
    I know it is under engine module but not sure how to actually find it? I believe it also tells you mins/hrs since last regen.

    All help appreciated.

    Cheers

    Danny

    Cheers for that fella, yeah I checked that but the percentage was under lamba reading, is this correct?
    Sure I have seen somewhere that it tells you actual soot level and calculated soot level? Or am I going crazy!!
    Also do you know how to adapt the new DPF sensor?

    Thanks

    On my 57 plate A3 170 its under block 70 and 75 and yes lambda % is the correct term; well on mine anyway. i think the terminology changes based upon year and the engine fitted?

    Just got the above results, was expecting to see a much higher Lambda % as the fuel consumption is poor given it's 70% motorway, only getting about 430 miles for a full tank(07 2.0tdi 170 DSG S line sport back


    Part of me is hoping that replacing the G450 DPF sensor will help Mpg?

    Update your VCDS to the newest version and rescan.

    Maybe start a new thread too? ;)
