Hi all and I hope you can help!

I get the regen thing but when my regen is taking place I have plumes of smoke coming out the back if I can't keep my revs up. I have had people flash me and you can see them saying that the engine is goosed.

I took it to the garage today and they said it was normal for it to be smokey on regen. But when I look in the rear view mirror it looks as if the army have put smoke grenades down. If I'm doing over 2k-3k I don't notice it.

Has anyone else experienced this. The car runs ok apart from the regen smoke. And I have looked online and everyone complains about regen but no mention of smoke?

I have a 62 2.2 4x4

Mine's never smoked. I don't even try to keep it above 2k revs anymore either as it doesn't seem to make any difference whether I do or don't during a regen!!

Nope no smoke here. I think you need to visit another dealer or get a passenger to try a video or photograph the smoke to show the dealer.

If the dealer wont accept it is a problem, try using a camcorder to record what it looks like so you can show him.
I've never had any noticeable smoke from my car during a regen.

Looks as if I have a major problem. On one tank I have had 4 regens. About 5k miles ago miss fueled the antara. Been fine since. Hope I haven't screwed something up not looking forward to going to the dealers tomorrow.

Wife is going ballistic sigh!!!!!!!!

If they don't already know, I wouldn't mention the mis-fuelling. They'll only use that as an excuse not to do anything.
