    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 failed:cry:Today i took it to a dealer and part exed it for another motorhome which doesn't need to meet the LEZ standards:thumb:My headache of a year seems to of gone now:ROFLMAO:thank 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:Doh:
    :Cool:ROB & JANE STILL MOTORHOMING:Cool:

    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.

    LEZ is an absolute nightmare and as for the filters your's isnt the first that failed with VOSA I do think its all a money spinning exercise and nothing to do with reducing pollution at all.

    Good luck with the new motorhome xxxxxxxxxxx

    I know why you got a smaller one - its so you can both take turns being on top

    This LEZ is a pain. Can't believe you forked all that money out for something that doesn't work:Eeek:

    It all boils down to the engine which would need rebuilding in order to work with the filter, matching old engine with new filter just doesn't work in this case, outside London the motorhome runs like a dream.
    Whoever buys it will get a great starter motorhome and i hope they look after her like we did.

    As for a come back Treacle I get to work in many high places ie Government buildings, parliament MI5 DVLA etc etc etc, I will have a giggle along the way and soon forget about the money:thumb::winky:
