You could also drive on the motorway and keep the car in a lower gear whilst travelling at 60 to 70 MPH. This type of driving along with using the cleaner should help to keep it clean as long as there isn’t a fault with the DPF.

You can also use it if your DPF warning light comes on; if the warning light is on, this can also cause your car to fail its MOT. Can I just take my car to a mechanic to clear my DPF? Because DPF filters have limited size and capacity, they can only store a limited amount of exhaust soot.
