Removal of Diesel Particulate Filter
OK, so here are my thoughts.
A large number of vehicles in SA use the same engines as they do in Europe where they are fitted with DPF's. When they are being sent to SA, they are assembled without the DPF to be compatible with our lower quality fuels.
So these engines are able to run on our diesel in SA, theoretically.
Here is my problem: I want to buy a Subaru again, but I want the diesel Forester.
Let's forget about the warranty implications completely.
If the DPF was removed, and the vehicle run on 50ppm as much as possible, it should not be a problem?
The reason I am thinking of this is because I live in Mozambique, and travel outside of SA a lot. Most of these out of SA places do not have 50ppm. I usually travel much more kilometers than the standard tank and jerry cans will take me.
Would it be possible?
