I am having continual problems with the DPF light coming on. Have done a burn as per instructions, and within 200 Klms the light comes on again. Any suggestions as to using a DPF cleaning additive and if so, which one?

Hi, how many kms on the odo?
The regen, was it done at a workshop or driving?
Do you know the dpf levels, esp ash?
Don't know if additives will help, but if the dpf is full then either replace or get someone to clean the guts to refurbish it.

As per above, need more detail.
Do you need to pass inspections in your area? Can you get away with "deletes"?
Can you get a full scan posted? Typically, unless you're at a lot of milage on the clock, there's something else failed like a sensor or system component that causes the issue. It could also be linked to your driving patterns.

Forget all about cleaners.

The main thing to find out is whether the dpf is the problem, or you have an engine problem (burning oil/injector fault etc).
