Your issue is short city miles. That doesn't give the DPF a chance to burn off the residue as it's supposed to. Simply driving at freeway speeds occasionally would accomplish the same, mostly. My DPF light never came on with my Passat, which had 24,000 mile when I sold it back to VW, or in my Jetta, which had 100,000 miles when it went back. That said, I believe that Propel HPR burns cleaner than standard diesel, so that will also help. But short city driving is going to load the DPF faster no matter what fuel you burn.
