    VW is pretty clear on not putting anygasoline in a common rail diesel.
    I am aware of what VW states mikeme.

    Experience with my own research + use of gasoline/kerosene blends to fuels brings a part solution.

    In the old days the cars ran up to one gallon permissible by the repair manual and I ran a couple gallons with no issue.
    Now the tolerances are much more strict due to knock sensors looking for that special ping spot.

    The difference is knowing what levels are permissible and nowadays people are just uneducated.

    I don't say things I haven't verified for many miles/years........... by just shooting my mouth off.

    I think tricking the regen is a bad way to do this and would rather do a chemical clean myself.

    Magical Chemicals:

    Really is amazing what foaming oven cleaner will do post turbo charger injected with hand spray bottle........... then a garden hose rinse into a bucket out the tail pipe...... with a rag to collect all the ash ( to remediate )..........Air dry that shit and go drive.

    I like taking the flapper out after the cat for a manual cleaning/lube and put the bucket there while car is on Jack stands.

    I use BG 244 and 248 for diesel fuel on regular basis with good results. I have customer that regularly drives in hot / cold climate (Florida / Colorado / New York) and never had a fuel related problem. I also have to mention this car (2001 Jetta) has well over 700,000 miles. So, not a new car.

    Oh yeah we run them............the AHU/ALH is much more forgiving and will run on many things concentrated/diluted forever.
    This in my opinion is the ICON of TDI reliability.

    I have seen TDI's of this series break 1 million K and not ever need a head gasket!

    Yes, I recently did valve cover on this ALH AND the cam looked like new. We are using QUARTZ INEO MC3 5W40 oil and BG MOA Oil Additive with Mann / Mahle oil filters.

    Been using the BG stuff for like 25 years already and many of there products are very good.
    I particularly like the MGC stuff for gears and asked them to make a similar additive for engine oil...... for chains in later vw's.

    I also like Castel and Kano labs in TN for the Kroil, Kreen, and Gearope lines.

    You need new DPF. It is over limit.Limit is 45 and that why you can not do regeneration.
    It is probably use wrong oil with lot of idling and cause this.
    I have many customers with miles likes yours (105k) and soot level is around 20. I have seen cars with 150K with soot around 25. So I can tell you 100% that car was using wrong old .
