the car comes with a DPF ( diesel particulate filter) also known as a soot filter

to my knowledge Mercedes does not employ the use of Eolys or other fluid injections to improve DPF performance so there' s no owner maintenance to do other than to ensure the car is given some hard work at least once a week to get the exhaust hot enough to burn off the soot
