I'm thinking of buying a vehicle with DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter). Can you explain what it is?

In simple terms, the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is part of the exhaust system responsible for cleaning the engine exhaust gases before they enter the atmosphere. The DPF uses advanced technology to perform this task. The exhaust smoke and black soot is reduced, the result is a cleaner environment and less pollution entering the atmosphere.
