Product information

What is a DPF Filter?

All modern cars with a diesel engine have a diesel particulate filter. The DPF filter captures incompletely combusted fuel (soot) from the engine that would otherwise end up in the environment.

In the course of time the DPF-filter becomes full. The car’s electronics ensure that this soot is cleanly burned during motorway driving or when the engine is under a heavy load. This is known as regeneration.

Regeneration reduces harmful exhaust emissions and helps to prevent the tell-tale black smoke that can sometimes be seen from diesel vehicles, especially when accelerating.

What are some common DPF problems?

Engine component failures such as EGRs and boost pipes, incorrect or overfilling oil and stop / start driving can prevent the engine from reaching the conditions needed for regeneration. This leads to soot buildup, eventually blocking the DPF and triggering a warning light on the dashboard. If you ignore the warnings then a blocked DPF will result in a costly trip to the garage.

Solution: JLM Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaner

JLM Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaner resolves blocked DPF issues without needing to dismantle the DPF. The cleaner ensures that the soot in the diesel particulate filter burns at a lower temperature, when the engine is under a light load and even during shorter journeys.

How to use JLM DPF Cleaner

Simply add a bottle to a full tank of fuel!

Key Benefits of JLM DPF Cleaner

  • Reduces Emissions: Lowers HC, CO, and soot emissions (smoke) by at least 20%, helping your car pass MOT tests.
  • Improves Efficiency: Keeps the DPF cleaner for longer, reducing trips to the garage and enhancing engine performance.
  • Advanced Formula: Contains a patented platinum-cerium compound for superior regeneration and cleaning at lower temperatures, outperforming conventional (iron based) cleaners.
  • Less Ash Build-Up: Contains no iron which means less ash, extending the life of your DPF. (Iron based cleaners increase the DPF temperature which can result in long term damage to the filter and higher levels of ash).

Why Choose JLM Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaner?

  • Better Regeneration: Unique platinum-cerium formula ensures safe and effective cleaning & regeneration.
  • Prolonged Filter Life: Reduces the need for frequent DPF maintenance.
  • Cost-Effective: Saves time and money by preventing costly garage visits.
  • Proven Performance: Trade trusted formula is suitable for passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and heavy-duty diesel systems.

DPF Maintenance Tips:

  • For ongoing DPF maintenance, use JLM Diesel DPF ReGen Plus 375 ml (J02200) to up to 60-litres of diesel fuel before or after filling. Use regularly for best results

Common FAQs about DPF Cleaner

Do DPF cleaners actually work?

Yes, for the majority of users, DPF cleaners work effectively to clear soot. They are particularly effective when used as a preventative measure to reduce the number of blockages you experience.

However, it is important to choose a good quality DPF cleaner from a well regarded brand such as JLM to ensure the filter is cleaned properly without damage to your vehicle.

Can DPF cleaners damage the engine?

DPF cleaners are safe to use in the majority of diesel vehicles that have a DPF. However, damage can be caused by improper use:

  • Overdosing: These cleaners work by lowering the burning temperature of soot in the DPF, allowing the car’s natural regeneration process to clean it out. If the problem is not resolved with a single treatment (tank full) then seek professional advice from a specialist diesel workshop. Do not keep adding additional doses as this will not help.
  • Low quality cleaner: Some DPF cleaners, particularly cheaper ones from unknown brands, might contain harsh chemicals such as iron that could damage the components inside the DPF. Adding too much of this type of cleaner can cause the exhaust temperature to get excessively high, potentially damaging parts like temperature sensors or even melting the DPF itself. Opting for a reputable brand using quality chemicals, and following the instructions carefully, is key.

These are the most common questions we get from a potential distributor.

Do any of the JLM additives help the performance of the high pressure diesel fuel pump?

J02330 Rapid is perfect for pump and injectors!

Is it OK to use the extreme and the DPF cleaner together. ?

No, this will not have a positive effect. In fact it may cause an adverse effect. And also the risk of overdosing! Never combine fuel additives


Will BluBoost dissolve existing crystal infestation or is it more like a preventative product?

JLM’s BluBoost additive cleans and prevents crystal formation in the AdBlue dosing system. It also conditions the AdBlue fluid for a longer time to ensure proper working of the AdBlue and SCR system. This helps prevent performance loss and the often-subsequent expensive repairs. It also reduces foaming at low temperatures

Is the JLM Engine Oil Flush safe for use with wet belt engines?

Our JLM OIL FLUSH is safe to use with ‘wet belts’ (TBIO). This is mainly because we use non solvent and premium pack of oil cleaning additives.


Does the Petrol Emissions Reduction Treatment also clean the catalytic convertor?

The catalytic converter is not a filter, it functions by converting harmful emission gases into less harmful gases. The filter can become contaminated if for example there has been an oil leak, and when this happens the filter needs to be replaced. There is no additive or chemical that will remove physical contamination from a catalytic.
