How come several posts made by members earlier today discussing how the MOT is being improved to catch illegal DPF removal have been deleted?

Hi. I wrote that I got 60 mpg a year ago. I was doing 120 miles per day on the motorway. Cruise control set at just over 60 mph. No air con on. It was a mile from my house to the motorway and a mile from the motorway to my work. My car had done 190k. I have now retired and driving around town extra the best I get is 45mpg. Trip up to see the kids 200 miles away gives me 55 mpg. Car has now done 210k. I use Shell mostly.

My auto box model is giving me 41.5 mpg on the computer, but only at 76,000 so maybe not fully run yet??

Mine is manual and has been motorway driving for 90% of the miles. I change the oil every 13k, air filter every 75k and it never fails the MOT. I had a 7th gen before which did 235k before it got written off on the M25. It also did about 60 mpg and never failed an MOT. Great cars.

Same here, 7 manual to 8 auto, not worried about mpg's as you say excellent motor's. I see you set cruise just over 60? so you are the bloke forcing lorries into lane two or three. LOL

Hi all.
I had a similar issue last November DPF light on and no !. Two regens by Honda Lincoln 160 miles apart and light back on again. So took the Accord to an indi garage and this was the reply.


A reply from a local independent garage.



Please find quotation for options to repair your Honda Accord.
To remove and have the DPF cleaned and refitted with new gaskets ( takes approx 5 working days) £599.00 inc VAT – comes with lifetime warranty – as long as you own the vehicle you would only have to pay the labour to remove/refit if the unit failed again.
To replace the DPF with original equipment specification aftermarket part and new gaskets £ 910.27 inc VAT.
To replace the DPF with genuine Honda DPF and new gaskets £ 1158.36 inc VAT
If you require any further information or would like to make an appointment please call.

Obviously also removal and remap was mentioned but not an ethical/legal option.

In the end i went for a clean and so far 3,500 miles and no issue.
