Oil degradation value
Does anybody know (silly question, I bet loads of you do) what the 1.9 JTDm uses the calculated oil degradation value for, apart from service warnings?
I have had my 159 JTDm for a few months now and have noticed via MES that the Average distance between DPF regeneration is quite low at around 120 miles. The pressure differential seems to be OK (around 7 at idle) and the blockage percentages decrease from around 70% to 20% after a regen, with good average temp (>600) and reasonable regen time (8-10mins).
I noticed that the oil degradation was at 9%, i.e. the garage didn't reset it after a service. If the car thinks the oil is poor will this bring the regens forward? I've reset the oil to 100% and am going to keep monitoring the distances but would be good to know if this attribute is taken into consideration.
Thanks in advance
