    ICarsoft monitored my DPF regen.

    Took my car for a short motorway drive yesterday, plugged the ICarsoft in to check my levels. The DPF was around 60% when I started off and within 6 miles you could watch the levels start to reduce and at the end was at 5 % and stopped there. It seemed to start during the first few miles, I was...

    We had a bright dry day yesterday so treated the soft top to a coating of Fabsil Gold as recommended by another member. The 1 litre tin gave just enough for 2 good coats, a tiny bit was left for my walking shoes. The results after today’s rain were impressive, hope it lasts.
