    I thought someone said on another thread that the LRV2.0 code reader will also show the the percentage of fill in the dpf.Others have also commented on problems with oil dilution when dpf full. These problems are common to all makes of diesels .

    Re resetting the service counter....
    Either go to your dealer or local Indy, or perhaps stump up £136.00 for the Icarsoft LRV2.0 code reader which will do it for you

    Had an interesting conversation with a certain online oil retailer today. Now I am a fan of Millers oil and they specify XF Longlife C1 5w30 for my XJ with a DPF. Apparently quite a few oils come with the STJLR, 03.5005 oil specification, but it has to have the C1 spec as well for vehicles with a DPF. So be careful what you buy peeps.

    Yes C1 spec as I mentioned

    So with that in mind what have you opted for?
    Also have you given any consideration as to how you'll update the service counter?

    Hi JimC64,

    I am going with Millers XF Longlife C1 5w30. I am not taking a chance on an oil with only STJLR, 03.5005 spec, gotta have C1 as well for me. On Opie Oils I can get 8 ltr plus Mahle oil filter for £61.10 delivered. Use "MERRYXMAS" at checkout for an extra 15% off until Jan 3rd.
    On the service counter, I am going to buy a Mongoose cable and plug it in! Have the software from on here

    Another vote here for Millers oil.

    Put exactly 6.5 litres in and that brings it to 3/4 full on the electric dipstick and you shouldn't have any problems.

Mind you the EGR system on the XJ looks crazy to say the least, don't think I will be cleaning that in a hurry! As for the oil, I think I will change it soon just to be on the safe side.

    Out of interest TheBoy, what oil do you use? I am a fan of Millers oil's. And do you know of a way to reset the ECU after servicing?

    Thanks
    I personally use GM Tradeclub oils, due to very competitive prices for decent quality, and convenience (my (not so) local dealer pops it on the van and delivers it to my door).

    To reset the service light, I use the official JLR SDD software.

    Dont just rely on what online retailers tell you when you put in the reg. For eg, most actually suggest a non low SAPS oil for pre 2012 XJs. Which will properly bugger the DPF in short order.

    If you are getting significant ash in the DPF regularly, which is easily discovered by frequent DPF messages on the dash, you have bought the wrong engine. You don't need a scan tool for that.

    If you have to force regen the DPF, you bought the wrong car. Force regen of DPF is not healthy to the DPF. If you follow the instruction to take the car for a decent, fast drive when the initial DPF warning comes on, you will never need to force regen it.
