I'm sure there was a post about this, but I can't find the right search terms to dig it up.

Apparently the Peugeot system burns a special fluid inside the FAP during regeneration, and this has to be topped up by the dealer. The Renault system uses plain old diesel from the fuel tank to do the same thing.

Edit: Found it!

50 Euros a litre for the special fluid? I'm never going to buy a Peugeot diesel now.
