Try taking it for a good blast in second gear for a few miles , most of the time the lights go out and this clears the fault

You need to get the additive refilled.

And thus it starts



Car is a 2012 1.6 diesel with the Eloys system with a tank under the car...



So it went into Peugeot dealers with a quote to fill tank and reset the tank



6 hours later and they tell me i need:-

A windscreen, a clutch, a tyre, a car battery, a key battery, front brakes (only done 12,000 miles ago), and other bric-a-brac

However the DPF is FUBAR and they wont fill the DPF fluid tank

Eventually they get 1ltr in but wont "bother" resetting it...........£180



Ive the whole printout



Tonight a local mechanic does a diagnostic to find NO error codes but the following for the tank, P1445, P15B3 and P1446 which indicate a filling issue but he has never seen them before but he states the DPF is NOT blocked

Another source informs me the tank weighs itself to monitor how much DPF fluid is in the tank and this could be an issue...



Feeling pretty hacked off.... car is now on 110k and has run perfect ti it was filled up on saturday, it seems the opening of the filler cap triggers a dose of fluid into the fuel..

You need a diesel specialist, he should be able to remap it, or at least a proper repair.

that wont unblock the DPF even with a forced regen plus the tank may have a fault

Cant understand why the DPF can be condemned when its not showing a DPF light on the dash and the car is running as well as ever giving 55mpg...(done 500 miles with the issue)

Peugeot "advise" a DPF at 120,000 miles, 1 dealer wont reset the tank, 1 will fit a DPF and reckons the tank can be reset..
