Re: New user looking for buying advice

My Espace has the 2.0dci FAP engine. In the past year
the regenerate fap message has come up twice,
the first time was just prior to hitting the motorway
the second when in town. The handbook for my
car instructs the regeneration to be performed
wiring 64ish miles from the alert and to regenerate drive the
the car at an average 36mph until the message goes off.
I drove at near 50mph and the message cleared after about 12 miles.
I'm doing a lot of stop-start town driving at present
and looking to see what distance amasses until the
message comes on again.
Are you in Argyll Simon? If so you're never far from a bit of open road.
My engine is chain driven.
