Launch UK has added a brand new diesel particulate filter (DPF) gun to its extensive range of diagnostic equipment, and is hoping to raise awareness to the importance of maintaining and cleaning a DPF. With DPFs a topical subject at present due to the rising issues surrounding diesel engine emissions, Launch is keen to offer motorists a cost-effective solution and prevent them from falling foul of the law when their vehicle’s DPF warning light appears.
