@allmondeos - exactly. this is how it also feels like.

How many times did that happened to you ? only once ?


The DPF regeneration sounds plausible. As we speak, the car is in service, so really curios what they will say.

Only once that I can remember, I have a video of mine too which is basically the exact same as yours. I'm interested to know if your service department find anything.

Yes the ecu takes its readings from the sensor in the dmf, however it will be the ecu which decides if the conditions are correct to perform a regen. This is the reason why sometimes regens fail or that regens are happening more often because of the driving conditions. Surely a sensor on its own cannot make decisions and only tell the ecu the condition of the filter?

Hi there!


Was the mystery with the trepidation solved? I experienced this too about 2 times on my 2.0 TDCI bi-turbo engine.

If DPF regeneration is ongoing you can see it from the instant fuel consumtion figure. In normal idle I have 0,4-0,5l/hour and if regeneration is ongoing fuel consumtion is almost double in idle. This way you can see if regeneration is ongoing when engine revs are not stable.

Correct, I noticed the same. I am always checking the fuel consumption before stopping the engine, to make sure I don't interrupt the DPF regeneration.

Still, the trepidation did not happen during DPF regeneration as the fuel consumption was around 0,5l/h.
