A friend at work has a 06 plate, 407 sw, 1.6 hdi, apart from the electrical germlins, yes he also has the warning about particulate filter level low, what get added and where do you know Pete?

It is a additive similar to Ad Blu that trucks use but called Eolys fluid and I believe there are two different types Chris? Any motor factor should stock it. The manual (or Google!) should tell you where the filler is located, some are handily placed under the bonnet but on certain models it is under the rear seat. Never topped one up myself though but it should be done at service time.

It is a Peugeot. Some mechanical parts might be interchangeable but I very much doubt any wiring is. We have three poo-goes, mine, my wifes and a parts one. I have robbed lots of parts off the scrap one but it seems any electronic item is bespoke to that year / model etc.

This load was only about half a tonne but a 1.4hdi doesnt like that much wind resistance.
I did two runs of about 120miles each. The first run I had a small fire inside the turbo heat shielding where all the muck and oil collects. I removed all the plastic vanity panels from around the engine and then it was ok.
It hasn't been the same since. I think I may have toasted the turbo or damaged something. Fuel economy is now terrible.

Not sure what type we put in the new build cars at work, it's just known as the UREA machine and charges the tank as the car goes down the assembly track.

On the 1.6 and 2.0 litre Focuses and C-Maxes fitted with the awful fuel additive systems the tank would need refilling at around 70000 miles. The major disadvantage of the additive is that when it burns in the DPF it leaves an ash deposit behind that isn't removed by regeneration. Ultimately the ash builds up and blocks the filter, I can't remember for sure but I think the DPF was supposed to be changed at 70k too. My mate who worked at a Volvo dealership said that the S and V50's had to have the filter changed at that interval too, the 70k service must have cost an absolute fortune.

On the Volvo's the additive tank was refilled at 36000 and at 72000 the tank was refilled and the particulate filter replaced.
