DPF= Diesel Particulate Filter...AKA Big Ole Cigarette Filter in your Exhaust. Look under the Passenger side...You Can't miss it.
The DPF captures all the Soot/Black Smoke. Once the DPF starts to get clogged, it goes through a process injecting DEF Fluid into the exhaust system and does a High Temp cleaning you could say of the exhaust system. There are plenty of videos that explain the whole process along with the pros and cons...biggest Con...Voided warranty.
I agree with everything except your biggest con. Voiding the warranty is a biggy....but violating state and federal smog laws is much bigger. Looks like the EPA upped the ante in terms of fines...looks like in excess of $30,000 for tampering or removing emissions control parts.
Just saying the troubles with the EPA would probably be bigger and more expensive than the factory warranty issue. Something that needs to be considered in this day and age.
