    Sounds like your dpf is full,probs due to incomplete regenerations

    Must admit that the numerous dpf cleaning cycles is the main reason I switched to a petrol. Lousy mpg, but no more driving at 60 in 3rd to complete the cycle.

    If your getting failed regens, which you must be to get the keep driving messages, your oil takes the brunt of the failed regen. As far as I'm aware, and il be corrected I know , when a regen fails the extra fuel used to get exhaust gases upto temperature is dumped into the oil.

    If your getting failed regens because your switching off then OK, tey to let them finish. If there is a problem and the engine isn't finishing the regens this needs looking at. Obviously the more failed regens the quicker the oil life drops and the more often you will get keep driving message. If it clears on that regen then your spending more time driving around with a partially blocked sytem

    Agreed, in fact remove regen light and forget about them . Regen will even finish with car on tick over sat on drive.

    True, Regen will even finish with car on tick over sat on drive. However you need to know that regen begun first. That's the whole idea of having dpf LED light.
