Yep, lots of diesel vehicles have DPFs, and all diesel vehicles sold in Australia after 1 Nov next year will have one. I'm not sure what your point is though Jeff.

DPFs have been compulsory fitment since about 2009 here and yes when they first came out there were loads of problems as the manufacturers fine tuned the software to make it work correctly.

My Pajero (Shogun in UK) has one and I monitor it all the time on torque and you wouldn't know it's there but........I do some short trips but mainly longer runs at freeway speeds which DPFs like so no problems for me.

However if you do just city running about then I really wouldn't get the diesel, the only time you hear of issues here are for diesels running around the city and yes as mentioned it's not covered by warranty.

Manufacturers / Dealers here are advising against diesels if most of it's driving are short runs, stop / start etc.

In my ASX I wired an LED to indicate when the rear window demister was active.

Now, before you all say "What the........" I discovered the rear window demister was activated when the vehicle perfoms a DPF burn-off cycle (increases engine load through alternator demand), so fitting an indicator allows me to notice when this is happening and continue driving until it goes off (takes around 15 minutes I found). Gave me comfidence I was not continually (accidentally) interrupting the burn-off and possibly cause longer term problems...

I discovered this when I was driving one day and noticed my rear window demisting whilst I was driving along......and wondered why.

As I was working at Mitsubishi HQ (Electrical Accessories development) at the time, it was a simple matter to check the technical specs on the vehicle...

Not sure if it applies to all the range, but may be worth checking.....
