The only implication is yours no mention of mileage other than yours.
Strange and very suspicious how the same hysteria has not been made of all the CAT's that have been removed by this "informative person" but still pass MOT year after year.
I wonder why that could be ?
Your missing my point cozy! You can go onto a large number of these sites that offer a Dpf removal service and the general gist of what they say implies that you WILL get Dpf problems far sooner that you would expect. Actually the figure given by Fiats technical documents is In fact 250000 km's or roughly 155000 miles so I gave a conservative figure. I've taken a fiat sedici 1.9 mj to 212000 with no Dpf problems. Go figure! Insinuating that a Dpf will go wrong in a shorter time frame than this due to the Dpf itself is misleading people.
I would have more respect for these people if they posted good advice first for their customers on how to use their cars in the correct manner first, I.e no short journeys less than 20 mins etc and then investigate why their cars are sooting up! I.e investigate all sensors that are part of the system and possibly remap without deleting the Dpf. That to me makes more sense than the brute force "sod it lets bin it because it doesn't work" approach that seems to prevail!
Sure -some of the fault lies with people not informing themselves about their choice of fuel in the first place, and a large portion can be blamed on sales people who don't care if a car suits your driving behaviour. In don't expect people to be mechanics but how long have we had Dpf technology with us? I compare this situation to people who buy computers expecting them to work faultlessly without any prior knowledge and then complain that they are not easy to use when the mess up!
Your not to know this but my father passed away from lung cancer aged 66, having never smoked and the coroners report indicated elevated levels of pollutants in his lungs. Pollutants that came from only one possible source! I need not spell it out to you what the source was!
My theory is the 30+ years spent living and working in Central London didn't exactly help!
Do we have to find this out for ourselves?
Those who remove their cats - how many of those replace them come mot time?
That makes it ok doesn't it ? You know - if you get away with it eh?
And let's face it there is no such thing a a dodgy mot tester is there?
Ever heard of the term "Bluetooth mot" ?
