    Dpf Regen & Dsg Coasting

    I’ve started to use the coasting function to try and get a few more mpg. However with the engine dropping to idle every time I’m off the throttle will this interfere with the regen? Surely a good blat at a constant of over 2000rpm will favour a complete regen cycle over interruptions from...
