Question Best fuel or additive to prevent DPF from clogging?


We bought a 2015 Golf Sportwagen with 5000 miles on it. My wife puts mostly city miles on it. After having the car for about two weeks, the fan was always running after the engine was turned off, and within a few days the DPF warning light came on.

We dumped in a bottle of Lucas Oil Diesel Deep Clean for DPF's and it worked. The warning light went off and the fan stopped running after the engine was turned off.

We researched DPF's and bought EnerBurn additive to help prevent this situation from happening in the future. We went to fuel up, to add EnerBurn for the first time, and stumbled across Propel Diesel HPR.

It looks like Propel does roughly what EnerBurn claims to do. It appears we should fill up with Propel whenever we can, and only use an additive when we fill up with regular petroleum diesel.

Does anyone have experience with lots of city driving and/or what the best practices are for keeping the DPF clean and not needing service for the longest period of time?

Thank you
