GSF Car Parts say the Vetech DPF Professional Cleaner they launched in 2015 has already saved UK motorists millions of pounds in replacement parts.
With sales of the DPF cleaner running into thousands of units and replacement parts costing over £1,000 in some cases the potential amount saved on replacement parts now runs into seven figures.
Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) are the leading technology for the reduction of harmful particulate emissions from diesel cars. What’s well known in the aftermarket – but not by UK motorists – is that DPFs are prone to getting blocked.
The problem is especially prevalent where diesel cars are used mainly on short journeys. Higher particulate emissions from cold engines will accumulate faster whilst DPF ‘regeneration’ (where collected particulate residues are burnt away) relies on longer journeys to be effective.
The number of motorists opting for ‘DPF removal’ is dropping; the practice is not only bad for the environment but is also now illegal. Air quality is a hot topic for UK policy-makers. In 2016, the Royal College of Physicians suggested inhaling particulates and nitrogen dioxide from diesel engines causes around 40,000 deaths each year.
The choice of legitimate solutions to DPF problems include part replacement, machine-based and pour in treatments and off-site cleaning services but GSF Car Parts say the Vetech DPF Professional Cleaner offers unique benefits.
“We’ve sold thousands of treatments to date, it has been well received by our customers and we have seen no returns or complaints,” said John Wright, Head of Garage Equipment and Customer Development at GSF Parts. “The fact is it works, it’s simple and it’s extremely cost effective.
“We have had many customers compliment this product and come back for more.”
