Grande Punto 1.6 Multijet DPF clogging?

I have recently bought a lovely 1.6 Multijet Sporting Grande Punto but am having some issues with it!

Firstly the warning light has now come on twice with the Anti Pollution Filter clogged. Once after a really long journey too which is strange. The car has only done 22000, i have been back to the dealer who has put it on the computer and they say nothing is wrong with it!

Is this normal?

Secondly i have now been told two different things regarding servicing one dealer has told me every 18000 miles and another ever 18000 or 12 months? Which is correct?

Thanks muchly people

Re: Grande Punto 1.6 Multijet DPF clogging?

Welcome to the problems of DPFs.

I would get some diesel treatment and run it with that in every now and then, help keep it from clogging up.

BG products are excellent and I would highly recommend them.
Thanks anthonyjgoodwin thanked for this post

Quite normal as long as the warning light goes out after a short trip say 20mins or there about.18000mls or twelve months way over average mileage for most drivers.
