Mercedes Sprinter 311 2.2 / 3.0 CDi DPF Removal – Permanent Solution

Mercedes Sprinter DPF Removal
The Mercedes Sprinter 311, both the 2.2CDi and the 3.0CDi versions suffer from the blocked DPF Filter problems. The DPF on the Mercedes Sprinter 311 is very large and if you’re lucky enough to have one that hasn’t blocked up yet, you may find its a target from people who steal cats (catalytic converters).

Why would someone steal my DPF?
Because they’re easy to remove, contain precious metals and if a new unit is worth £1500+ how much do you think someone would pay for a second-hand one? – If you have your DPF stolen from your van and was being quoted £1500+ for a replacement unit, I’m sure you’d pay £500 for a second-hand unit to get you by.

My Sprinter 311 DPF is blocked, what are my options?
You’ll be told my dealerships that you have two options, the second not being available if it is completely blocked due to the risk of causing other problems – not to mention having your vehicle catch alight.

  1. Replacement DPF Filter – at a cost of £1500+ (+Labour & +VAT).
  2. Forced DPF Regeneration – this raises the temperature above 800 degrees celcius but if you’re not careful, you could cause more damage if the DPF is completely blocked.

What can DPF Solutions do for me?
We offer a more permanent solution by completely removing the DPF from the vehicle and reprogramming the engine ECU, we can guarantee that you will not experience any more DPF related issues on your Mercedes Sprinter 311. You will not experience any smoking issues, DPF related fault codes, warning lights or Limp Mode (Loss of Power).

Once the DPF is removed from your Mercedes Sprinter, you will see an instant increase in power & performance right through the rev range, a definite increase in pulling power up hills and a significant gain in fuel economy.

Replacing the DPF means you will need to drive your vehicle on motorways frequently to burn off the filter and maintain it – Removing the DPF from your Mercedes Sprinter 311 means you won’t have to do any kind of motorway driving or any particular driving style whatsoever, you can drive and maintain your vehicle like a normal diesel and never have to worry about the DPF system ever again as it will be completely de-activated.
