All diesels sold in the UK after 01 January 2011 had to be fitted with DPF's by law. Our September 2010 registered Ceed CRDi (MY 2001) was the first delivered by our dealer with one fitted.Does anybody know if this model has a DPF. I need to know because the handbook gives different engine oil for DPF and non DPF models
Thanks BA, the handbook is confusing in that it implies that my 2015 model could be fitted with an engine that has or has not a DPF.All diesels sold in the UK after 01 January 2011 had to be fitted with DPF's by law. Our September 2010 registered Ceed CRDi (MY 2001) was the first delivered by our dealer with one fitted.
Your car has a DPF unless its been modified, if its been modified its illegal to use.
Will not make any difference. The UK DPF laws were the same as the EU laws from 01 January 2011, that why its known as Euro 5. In some countries DPF's were mandatory before they were legally required but not in the UK. Back about 12 years ago we had 2 Euro 4 diesels in the house, one had a DPF, one did not. Simple reason was the fact that one could meet the requirements of Euro 4 without a DPF but the other was an older, dirtier design that could not.Is your car a French or UK model ? Ashie.
When we bought our 2008 Sportage I asked whether it had a DPF or not,salesman said 'no' but when I had a look under the car I could clearly see that it did have a DPF fitted,I know it is not as easy to look under a Ceed but it would give peace of mind and you would know for sure.
I would have thought that a 2015 car would have a DPF fitted.
Thank youAs 'Back Again' stated further up the thread, if this is a UK model from 2011 the car would have left the factory with a DPF fitted. The only reason it would not have one would be because its been removed by a previous . This would make it illegal and wouldn't pass an MOT. I see your registered in France which means EU rules would be the same.
I'm not sure you can see it from the engine bay but more from underneath the car (I've never personally looked for mine) But they will look like a Cat converter on the down pipe from the exhaust manifold.
Having a search on google I found this:
