Particule filter for petrol 1L TSI

Post by jheywood » Fri Aug 10, 2018 6:52 am

Hi,
How can I check is my T-Roc 1L TSI has a particule filter? It was delivered in April 2018 and the dealer said it would have one despite delivery before september when it becomes compulsory for new petrol models with direct injection
I don't mind climbing under if needed. 8-)

Found this on the internet to help you try and locate it and how it works.

The new filter is tucked in behind the engine a few centimetres from the turbo, heats up very quickly and becomes effective seconds after starting from cold. At its core, exhaust is forced through the walls of channels blocked off at alternate ends. The trapped particulates are superheated, reduced to CO2 and, at the same time, the unwanted HC, NOx and CO are converted to small amounts of CO2, nitrogen and water.

After leaving the filter, exhaust gases pass through a second, conventional three-way catalytic converter mounted beneath the floor. This ensures the tailpipe exhaust complies with the latest level of EU6c emissions standards even when the engine is working flat out. The Up GTI is subject to the new WLTP (World Harmonised Test Procedure) and RDE (Real Driving Emissions) testing standards. Like EU6c, WLTP applies to all new types of car introduced after September 2017. WLTP should ensure the quoted emissions are much closer to real world outputs.

I see C02 emissions for MY2018 are 117 against 119 for 2019 models that are WLPT approved.
So I guess yours doesn’t have a filter
