Dumb regen question

I've read from a lot of you that your truck regenerates at a certain mileage. How do you know that? I've only got ~400 miles on mine and I've never noticed a regen. How will I know when it happens?

A message will pop up on your information center, says something like "cleaning diesel exhaust filter". My first regen happened right at 250 miles, and the second was right at 500. The message doesn't stay on that long so you could have missed it.

What I don't know is how long it takes, both times mine went into regen I was stopping within 5 miles, once for fuel the other time we were reaching our destination. My instant mileage also dropped about 2 mpg during regen.

Regens very based on how you drive it. Sometimes I get several hundred miles between them and sometimes only 100 or so. The message comes up quick - I can tell based on the instant fuel mileage, it drops a few mileage points as previously pointed out. I never timed it, but if it runs long enough to get the soot % down a certain point it won't regen again until the DPF plugs up again.

I don't have one, but the Edge monitor will let you know when you are regen and will tell you your average mileage between them...

No stupid questions here... That is what this forum is for.

yeah, I cant make heads or tails out of any of his posts either.

Apparently Sprint Customer Service only allows him to post during his break.

Brand new F350 and montior indicated regen at 250 miles, nothing at 500. I was on the freeway and notice was on briefly during cycle. Looked for it to regen at 500 miles didn't happen.

The "cleaning exhaust filter" message flashes very quickly and there is no noticeable drop in HP or change in the engine's sound as with the 6.4. So if you miss the message you may not know the Regen is running. I've got about 700 miles on my new truck and it just completed its third Regen cycle while driving home from work today. The first happened at around 250 miles and second occurred in the 500's. The cycle lasted for approximately 15 minutes, I traveled about 10 or 12 miles and my instant MPG dropped to 10 or 11. Since my new truck's info center does not allow me to check Regen status, I'm assuming the end of Regen cycle occurs when my instant MPG gauge rises back above 15mpg.

First, thanks for the all the help about the regen process.

I've been looking at Edge, Bully Dog, and H&S. I've just about ruled out the BD, because of another member that posted problems with his last 2 trucks. H&S is really HIGH DOLLAR, so that makes Edge a strong possibility.

A ScanGaugeII is a nice inexpensive add-on OBD-II plug-in as long as you figure out the XGAUGE settings for whichever engine you're going to use it. I had one in my old 99 Exploder gasser that I moved over to my 6.4L once I found the right XGAUGE settings. Will eventually replace it with something nicer -or more likely a tuner - but for the past couple years it's been of immense help in my 6.4L, especially in figuring out regen cycles etc.

I bought this one in 2008:

There's a super idea: let's all get a new display that gives us the ugly details on each and every regen, especially how much fuel is used/wasted, and especailly how much time/miles between regens! Better yet, I recommend a recall wherein they reverse this recall - maybe a class-action to get it removed because it degrades the vehicle instead of improving it?

How bout a recall that removes the processing plant that attaches to the back side of the turbo and ends up behind the rear passenger tire?
