Black Vauxhall Antara, 2012

I just bought a 2012 Antara, I imagine it would have been top of the range back in 2012. Black metallic paint, 19” alloys, full leather, sat nav.
I bought it from a dealer and paid well for it, £5500.
DPF was very blocked, kept getting various warning lights.
Dealer did a clean and I was told the filter was choked. Got the car back,
For a few miles it was fine, but I noticed a lot of smoke coming from the exhaust. I also got a couple of warning lights, basically I had to contact the dealer again. They took it back in and found a cracked pipe at the intercooler.
Fixed this and I have a completely different car.
However, ECO still isn’t working, never has and my MPG is horrendous, around 21mpg.
Dealer says they will look at it but to wait a couple of weeks.
Any of you guys have any ideas.

Eco won't work if dpf is trying to regen. Also considers brake vacuum, ambient temp, climate demand on ac, demist, water temp, warning lights, battery voltage and battery life. Is it correct battery? Stop start should be thought of as a feature that will only work if all criteria is met.
