Also, do you have a copy of the official workshop manual to spare?

Wouldn't a lot of problems be solved by manufacturers putting something in place where the cars trip computers actually tell you that it is performing a Regen and when it is complete etc and when it is needed. ie like Error DPF at 40% please drive above 2k RPM for more than 20mins. Then a countdown to completion? Just so drivers have an idea what the hell is going on. I have a 2.2 Sport 2011 and have no idea when it does this.

I notice my car runs on slightly after releasing the throttle whilst an active regen is in action. Makes the car feel like its not responding to letting off of the throttle.
Watch the instantaneous consumption too, it will hold out in the 60-70mpg range rather than 99.9mpg. Whilst off of the throttle for a few seconds.
