Whatever else happened, I can't accept the assertion that the DPF was initiated to burn off as a direct consequence of using just a third of a tank of Shell diesel.

What do you mean by 'DPF came on'?

 

The DPF is permanently in circuit. What I guess you mean is that the DPF warning light comes on which means the DPF needs reforming or replacing.

 

Reforming - if it is not too choked to start with - can usually be achieved by a steady drive at 2000rpm for 30 minutes or more, and you have plenty of motorways around Bolton to do that. Towing a caravan at a reasonable speed will do it quicker as it gets the DPF hotter.
