I have a vague memory from another of my posts, which I can't locate, that the soot mass for a 'full' VW group DPF is 70 g.
Likewise. The Oil Ash Residue title has “(l)” beside it. Whether that means litres, I still have not figured out.:sad:Mine doesn't read out in grams, I think it reads out in litres
At 0.15 at the moment.
I think it switches between g an l depending on engine type.I’ll have to take another trawl through “settings” and figure out how to get mine to read Oil Ash Residue in (g).
Also to display “Field Regen status” in place of one of the other less useful items on my current displayed list. Is that one as informative as it sounds?
Bouncing this thread back into the "active" zone (pun intended!).I think it switches between g an l depending on engine type.
I would like to be wrong on this and be able to display %
Mine doesn't relate to the fullness of the DPF unless mine is still the same as when I bought it 3years ago😁I'm increasingly convinced this can be treated as a % full. Not least by the fact this is the figure that the green bar %full display regularly gets down to when an active regen completes. I'm very willing to be educated otherwise though if incorrect?
Thanks for the mpg comparison. That's about what I would expect from a 170 with a 6-speed box during a m-way cruise. My current Yeti (110) struggles to get near that at motorway speeds, not least because its working harder and only has a 5-speed box. (Although the final drive ratios will differ and compensate to some extent of course.)Mine doesn't relate to the fullness of the DPF unless mine is still the same as when I bought it 3years ago😁
On a good hard drive it regens down to 22% if just ambling about its 25% so I can't see how it can relate .
I'm lucky to get 45mpg on a long run........
Is that what soot regens get down to, when they complete?At about 42000 miles mine is showing 22% oil ash full, very happy with that.
The one I have is OBD2 ELM327 V1.5 Bluetooth Wireless Car Scanner Android Torque Auto Scan Tool UK.I gather the dongle needs to be ELM327. The Carista dongle seems to work but there others with varying ratings on Amazon.
