    Right my friend has finally got her M/Home sorted hope this sorts you out as well if you live or need to come to London

    We can fit a DPF to your vehicle which is TFL approved. At present we are waiting for VOSA to issue the necessary certificates so that we can certify the system when we fit it, this should be in place shortly.

    The Clean diesel DP filter is a “Constantly regenerating dry system” so there are no costly additives needed to help it operate. The system should regenerate and clean itselfregularly, there is a small flow gauge fitted to the vehicles dash which confirms the state of the filter. In most driving conditions the filter will look after itself, but if the gauge does show that the filter is beginning to block then it would be necessary to carry out a regeneration drive cycle, (driving for a short time in a lower gear than you would normally use for a set distance). This is the same for most modern diesel vehicles which have factory fitted DPF's as standard.

    At this stage Clean Diesel do not envisage it necessary to have a yearly service (clean the DPF), but depending on the condition of the engine and or the vehicles drive cycle, some vehicles may require a periodic service. The Clean diesel modular design allows the DPF to be dismantled. The filter is simply removed and placed in a specialist cleaning station, heated for several hours to remove the build-up. After cooling the filter is refitted and the vehicle is ready to go. Turn around for this operation is expected to be 2 to 3 days with a cost of around £150 plus VAT. We are hoping to be able to offer a filter loan service, which subject to a surcharge, would prevent the vehicle being off road during this time.

    The Clean Diesel DPF will have a two year warranty, covering parts and labour.

    The DPF will need to be certified which we will carry out at time of fitting. It will also need to be recertified annually and we are hoping to carry this out at the same time as the vehicles yearly MOT.

    Yearly certification £32.00 at VOSA authorised testing stations

    The cost for your type of engine is £1370.00 for the DPF kit. £300.00 Labour. VAT @ 20% £320.00. Total £2004.00.

    Just found that Germany class M/Homes as Light Goods so are Euro 4 compliant.

    We class a m/home over 3.5 as heavy goods there fore they are heavy goods Euro 3 :Eeek:

    Thats what I was asking for that we ran the whole LEZ as Germany does :Doh:

    Once VOSA have issued the certificates, it would be a choice available. Most HGV owners however, have chosen to ditch non conforming trucks rather than buy add ons that require a constant certification (the MOT is enough thanks) and has no gaurantee of lasting a definative amount of time.
    By far the best way is to stay out of London, although not an option for those living there unfortunatly.
    Some companies have sent trucks to other depots, I suppose an option would be, for owners living in london, to park their vehicle at a caravan storage depot outside of the LEZ. OK it'll be £400 a year and a bit of inconvenience (well a lot i suppose), but in the light of the alternatives.....not such a bad idea.
    You are not alone, Landrover owners all over london also have the same problem.

    i thought you were outside of the LEZ anyway Gail. Perhaps you need to find storage further out.

    I have been asked elsewhere if they take their vehicle (I think a Hymer) back to German and have a conversion filter done, where it is cheaper to fit, would they comply.

    A thought strikes me that Germany wont have the right conversion for a 3.8 Hymer because they only need to get it to Euro 3 as thats all that is required in Germany.
    I wish I had thought of this before as its becoming a stronger case of stupidity doesnt it.
    I think I will draft up a letter again and do another campaign with Cameron and my Local MP and MPs of London Boroughs.
    That they should regulate M/Homes the same as Germany.Reports coming out of Germany is they might stop it anyway as it proving costly !!!1

    As far as I know, it is not down to government but the Lord Mayor of London.

    Yes I know but he always passes the buck to the Minister of transport. When It was the Mayor that set this all up in the first place.
    In Germany its the Mayors responsibility and they apparently are fed up with the cost of it all.
