Does Audi A3 have DPF?
The DPF has passive and active regeneration. Passive being when the Audi A3 is driven at high speed, the temperature of the exhaust burns off the soot particles which are built up in the filter.
Which Audi A3 is the fastest?
Its punchy petrol-electric drivetrain can propel the A3 Sportback to 62mph from rest in 7.6 seconds, with a 138mph top speed in hybrid running. The three performance versions (RS3, S3 and 1.8 TFSI) can all do 0-62mph in less than seven seconds, and every A3 Sportback can hit a top speed of at least 120mph.
How do I know if my Audi has DPF?
Another way to check for the existence of a DPF, is to see what type of oil it uses. This is stated in the handbook or on a label in the engine compartment. If the car requires a low ash (Low SAPS) oil, then it indicates the presence of a DPF.
When did Audi a3 get DPF?
The DPF is a filter that traps particulate matter such as soot and ash from the exhaust, which, if not maintained/replaced regularly, can cause expensive problems within your engine. The filter has been standard since 2009, and luckily we work with these every day at Fergies.
