The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) comes standard on most diesel engine vehicles, and it’s designed to capture soot and other pollutants before they can be emitted into the atmosphere. However, being that this component is a filter, it needs to be cleaned to remove the soot and contaminant build up from time to time. This is accomplished via “regeneration”, – and it’s an arduous process.

For regeneration to occur, the vehicle must travel at speeds of 45 miles per hour (or more) consistently so that the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) can heat to burn out the contaminants. But being that regeneration can take up to 45 minutes to complete, maintaining consistently high speeds can be a challenge for some diesel drivers – and when regeneration cannot occur, the DPF can become clogged, and the engine can also sustain damage.

Rather than deal with the hassle of a clogged Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and potential engine damage – not to mention the repairs and downtime that come with such – many owner-operators and fleet managers just opt to have the component deleted altogether.

The Advantages of Having a DPF Deletion

Aside from eliminating the maintenance and possible repair issues associated with the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), there are various other benefits to deleting it. These include:

Fuel economy improvement: For regeneration to occur, the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) draws in fuel. After the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is deleted, fuel economy often improves because this fuel is no longer needed for filter cleaning.
Improved engine power: The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) also restricts the engine, preventing it from operating at its full potential. Many diesel owners and fleet managers report a noticeable performance improvement following deletion.

By removing the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) from the ECU, your vehicle will no longer receive any error message from it; consequently, if you have a temporary problem with your car and need the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) to be replaced, then bypassing it with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) deletion can make sense, especially if you are not planning on driving on the road. It could make towing something heavy with an off-road vehicle that much easier by offering increased torque and power when you need it, too. In the main, the DPF deletion service provided by Essex Tuning is best reserved for diesel engine vehicles that are destined for export and which will only be used for off-roading.

Although it is not illegal to remove a DPF filter form your vehicle, it is an offence under the Road vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations (Regulation 61a(3))1 to use a vehicle which has been modified in such a way that it no longer complies with the air pollutant emissions standards it was designed to meet.
