I see there is still never any consideration for cummulative effects...

Like running a truck without an air filter... the truck will run great - for a while. And then, the cummulative effect takes over...

Since we have little in the way of real world experience with these at this point, we must rely on what we are told... A regen turns soot to ash but the ash has no where to go. Running the wrong fuel will, we are told, have the effect of creating ash in higher quantities quicker.

There are many things we can do with or to a truck once with little in the way of ill effects.... repeat the same thing time and again and the situation can change. Like driving in a nail with a hammer... it can take several blows... the last one is the one that counts.
