Tec4 DPF Cleaner Review Tried & Tested. Does It Work?

DPF CLEANER REVIEW

Tec4 DPF Cleaner Review Tried & Tested.

DPF Diesel System Cleaner

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know many people now drive a ”modern diesel car” and we dread the DPF light pinging up on our instrument panel. It’s going to be costly, right?

Unfortunately, mine popped up a few days ago on my Audi 2.0TDI and the standard ”regen” or regeneration process didn’t work.  *sad face*

Luckily I remembered that Milner Off Road sold the Tec4 Complete DPF & Diesel System Cleaner. At £17 + vat (£20.40) it was well worth purchasing to see if I could get my DPF light to turn off.

So I am now sharing my experience with the magic that is Tec4 Complete DPF & Diesel System Cleaner.

Please note: I had just filled my tank before carrying out the treatment.

Step 1:
Add one 400ml of DPF & Turbo System Cleaner to the contents of the fuel tank.

Step 2:
Idle the engine for 5 minutes.
(Don’t forget to take the bottle out and close your fuel flap before doing so).

Step 3:
On completion turn off the engine and add one 400ml bottle of Diesel System Cleaner to the contents of the fuel tank.

Step 4:
Take your car for a drive, for a minimum of 20 minutes at medium revs.
(Again, don’t forget to take the bottle out and close the fuel flap).

Step 5:
Huzzah!! No more light on the dash.

I will keep you posted as to whether this improves my fuel economy or not. Also whether I find any difference in the day to day running of my car.

So far I am just impressed I didn’t have to go to a garage to have it cleaned or replaced. I can imagine the cost would be extortionate, a bit like a wiper blade from the main dealer!

Recap:

Just to recap, the standard regeneration process did not work. To be honest I was wanting to try this stuff out, after already trying the Diesel Fuel Saver kit on one of my other cars. (Which by the way, also worked a treat).

There are other DPF cleaners on the market which are readily available. However, because I have used Tec4 products before, I know I can trust them.

Here is the link for the DPF Cleaner on Milner’s site: https://www.milneroffroad.com/universal-parts/dpf-cleaners 

And just before you ask yourself the question. No, you cannot remove your DPF. Not only will it make you fail your next MOT, but it is also now illegal.

Motorist’s Facing Stricter MOT Rules.

New MOT

What The Stricter MOT Test Means To You.

As from Sunday 20th May 2018, the new Rules come into effect.
With new defect types, stricter rules for diesel car emissions, and some vehicles over 40 years old becoming exempt.

Defects found during the MOT are categorised as either:
Dangerous, Major or Minor.

The category the MOT tester gives each item will depend on the type of problem and how serious it is.

MOT testers will still give advice about items you need to monitor. These are known as ‘advisories’.

So Let’s Talk Emissions…

There are stricter limits for emissions from Diesel cars with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).

DPF captures and stores exhaust soot to reduce emissions from diesel cars.
Your vehicle will get a major fault if the MOT tester:

  • Can see smoke of any colour coming from the exhaust.
  • Find evidence that the DPF has been tampered with.

What can you do before your MOT?
