When, day in day out, you drive your van round suburban or urban streets, stopping frequently, sometimes parking all day outside a job and possibly never going near a motorway or fast stretch of road from one year end to the next, do they get problems ?

If the VW Transporters are anything go by, they change the way that the DPF operates for "courier spec" vans. I'm not sure of the exact differences, but I ~think~ they rely less on "passive" regeneration, and you get a light showing on the dash while the DPF is actively regenerating (you get no indication on a normal T5). IIRC the courier spec van drivers are not supposed to turn the engine off while it is undergoing a regen which, if true, must really annoy them!

Hi everyone,

Sorry about the slow final reply. We picked up our Broadway from the Peugeot Dealers on Monday afternoon. Both sensors fitted, software updated and all is now OK, we hope. Thank goodness it turned out not to be the particulate filter giving problems. Why a faulty differential pressure sensor and faulty fuel sensor on a relatively new motorhome, that's another subject to debate!!. I will report back if there are any other issues in the near future. We are off to Autosleepers, Broadway soon to have its first full habitation check, including possible issues with the LPG tank/nozzle leaking a little bit. However since we put 4 litres into an empty tank a couple of days ago, we haven't detected a gassy smell in or around the van. But what's strange is this 4 litres hasn't registered on the gauge on the dashboard. Anyway we will see what Autosleepers say and will let you know.

My thanks to everyone for their comments and advice.

I know this is an old thread but when our 2013 Broadway was in the Peugeot dealer for a software update, they could read off their diagnostic equipment when the DPF was last regenerated. It coincided with an awful smell like a burning clutch as I was driving, obviously, I thought it was the clutch, but it went away shortly afterwards.  I have noticed the same smell now and again, and even on Mrs A's car.  Once smelt, never forgotten.
Pete, re the gas question, you probably have this sorted now, but our gas guage shows empty when there is still 7 or 8 litres of gas in it. When it shows empty, I can only get about 12 litres in

Short journeys kill DPFs. Having a vehicle standing for periods of time makes no difference whatsoever. A Diesel engine with DPF needs a good hard run once in a while to keep them from sooting up. 

The use of premium fuels like a Shell V power or BP ultimate really help as does using Low Ash engine oil. 

Modern Common rail engines do not like multiple short journeys , they don't tolerate poor quality fuels and Low Ash engine oil really helps .
