If you are suffering regular problems with your diesel particulate filter, then a removing or deleting your DPF may be something you have considered, but you should not. And here’s why:
The main reason not to carry out a DPF delete is that when your vehicle is due for an MOT test, it will fail (if tested correctly). This will make your vehicle unroadworthy and unable to get a road fund licence, and therefore illegal.
The Government have clamped down on DPF removals ie the removal of the diesel particulate filter, and have introduced and re-enforced MOT testing standards to check DPF filters are present and operational.

Another reason not to go for a DPF delete is the reason the filter was put there in the first place, which was to reduce emissions which are harmful to people and the environment. The DPF filter catches these and neutralises them through chemical reactions.
Rather than have a DPF delete, you can clean virtually every blocked DPF filter, and by regenerating the DPF when it is needed, and some regular cleaning, you should be able to keep it operating efficiently and effectively.
