Yes, it's a no no. A petrol, hybrid or electric car is better suited to short journeys.

I owned an Evoque that had issues with the DPF. But when a diesel flags up that the DPF needs a regen, how long time or distance wise do you have to get it on a motorway/dual carriageway before the fuel...
Is there any reason not to have the DPF on my car removed? I do a lot of short journeys. The garage would charge £600 + VAT.
After repeated short drives in a diesel does DPF regeneration make a noise and raise the engine rpm?
