Re: Grand Espace Dynamique 2.0 DCi 175 .. advice?

Hi, I'm just curious to see how long between burns the car travels. I don't have to do it.
Using the car is just like driving normally, the systems of the FAP look after themselves, only if a build up of soot in the FAP occurs does the message come up for me to take action - in my case, drive the car for n average of 36mph for as long as it takes for the burn process to take place.
The last time I had to go for such a run it took about 12 miles which I travelled at 50mph. Once complete the alert message extinguished.
