Avensis 2.0 D4D-Driving Style

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has been covered before but I've just bought a new Avensis diesel and was surprised that there is nothing in the handbook about recommended driving style to avoid DPF issues. On other well known sites the advice seems to be to use 3rd gear for 20 minutes or so once a week to ensure a regeneration cycle takes place. With 6 gears it's difficult to achieve over 2k revs on the motorway. Also, should I avoid supermarket diesel?

Any advice?

Cheers!

I've always run supermarket fuel in all my cars including my corolla t sport without any probs, but I only use branded diesel with the dpf, maxol, bp etc. The car does a fair bit of shorttown driving during the week but I normally do a 20 minute trip at 2,500rpm in 4th or 5th up the motorway to try and keep the dpf nice and clean.
