Well i have had to accept defeat to the Low emissions zone, having paid out 3000 to be compliant and taking it back to the garage 5 times in a year due to it blocking up, Garage then removed it cleaned it AGAIN and left it on there premises but fitted a module meaning we were ok till the VOSA test, but put it back on on friday so i took it for its annual test at VOSA and it failedToday i took it to a dealer and part exed it for another motorhome which doesn't need to meet the LEZ standardsMy headache of a year seems to of gone nowthank god.
The particulate filter which is still mine was once worth 3000 and is probably only worth scrap value now unless anyone knows any different

Tried and failed. I know that feeling. Sometimes it makes total sense to say "enough". Which you did.

Worth a punt on ebay ?

Well at least you tried. What annoys me is that all my vehicles are the cleanest burning of all, being on bio, but am not allowed into the capital with them because of there age. Could you not have filled up with bio before going for the test and given it a blast up the motorway to clean it out. Whenever I go for the MOT they cant get any readings on the computerised emissions machine.
