Hi I have a 1.6 HDI 16V (92bhp) Diesel.

Now I think I need to top up the DPF additive only I cannot find the tank - is there such a thing?, the usual go to your dealer in the manual!

What makes you think you have a DPF fitted and what warning do you get that the Eolys tank is empty?

I don't see a listing for 92BHP with DPF, only 110BHP has DPF.... (Citroen call it the FAP)

anyway, if you do have a FAP then the pouch is no 16 (click or tap the image twice to zoom)

PM me your full VIN and I can look to see if your is listed with FAP/DPF ;)

If you need some replacement additive, it is available here (click).

Yes, the PM worked.

Your is listed as

PARTICLE FILTER WITHOUT PARTICLE FILTER

So you don't have a DPF/FAP
I have like a large pot thing immediately between the turbo and the exhaust that's why I think I have a DPF fitted.
That is the Catalytic Converter.

The DPF is with the fuel tank on 110BHP models

Many thanks for checking that - saves me jacking the car to look.

Will just have to wait for diagnostic :? .
