Hi all! Hope everyone’s well!
It’s that question again!....Isuzu Dmax, dumping fuel into sump.....and regenerating DPF every 15-20miles? What the hell to do? And advice would be welcome. Thank you.

Thanks for the response cowabunga!
I have slightly fallen out with the damn thing, costing fuel,it’s not even burning etc!! Is a Hilux better? Or am I better off going back to a 2.4 transit Defender 110 Xs...given residuals??

Question
Why are UK vehicles SO prone to this problem ?
There are a lot of Isuzu utes & other modern diesel vehicles here, & it just doesn’t seem such a major issue. And yes, a lot are used purely in urban environments as a family car, so there is a lot of short distance stop start driving also involved.
We have a few new Isuzu’s in the Council fleet & ours ( Parks & Gardens ) hardly ever leaves town & it would be lucky to do more than 5km in any single trip

Yes, I have heard of dpf issues here, but none to the extent that seem to present themselves in TFFland

Different motors I think.
Higher tier of emission compliance perhaps? Certainly the case for a lot of diesel stuff here. Mrs Pom has a 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe, no DEF doesn't regen (I don't think) etc.

yeah, all diesel vehicles here now have dpf, definitely small passenger & commercial vehicles, but even the JD CS690 cotton stripper I was driving last year with 500 + hp . . .

but, with the Isuzu, we only get the 3.0 l engine, not the 1.9

You’re lucky in the new Isuzu launching next year we don’t get the 3 litre option but if rumour is correct we get the 1.9l with add blue, oh I wish we could get the 3 litre

Out of curiosity what's your typical drive in it?
I've honestly never noticed my dmax do a regen. In fact it's barely had the bonnet up in 130k miles.
it gets worked hard though which I'm convinced is the best thing for them

One reason may be because you don't get the same engines that are built for higher emission standards.

You probably have the previous generation or even the one before that? Otherwise you are a very high mileage user which certainly helps to successfully regenerate on a regular 'normal' basis.

I wonder whether fuel quality in the uk is an issue. All diesel sold has to have a minimum biofuel content I believe and I wonder how well this burns and what deposits it leaves behind.
 
Get it "repaired by an independent specialist" who will invoice the "repair and re-map" simply as a Repair....

But will in fact remove from the top, by taking the exhaust system off and close up the removal scar with neat welding which is out of the field of view of an MOT tester.

Otherwise the vehicle should be considered to be scrap and needs replacing with yet another vehicle which produces another set of production emissions ........

Man fined £300 for bonfire-related waste offences

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

court-640x360.jpg
A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
