2013 DPF not cycling

Hey guys Im new here so If Im in the wrong spot let me know.
Im having some trouble with my 13' F350. Its trying to regen every 200 miles or so. I have taken it out for an hour drive or so trying to get it to complete, but no luck. Local ford shop took it an drove it for 2 hours and finally manually got it done. Was told this is normal and it will happen again. Trouble is that, my mileage dropped almost 4mpg's during this process. I dont want to have to take it in every two weeks to have the teck manually regen the system. Am I not driving hard enough? Or am I missing something. This is my second 6.7, first one had the death wabbles that could not be found at 20k and this one has 3700 miles and has this going and has already had a turbo replaced. I either have some bad luck or ford has some problems. Any thoughts?

Regens every 200 miles sounds normal. Mine regens more often than that when it's hot outside. Takes about 10 miles of normal driving to complete a regen.

I understand it going into regen that frequently, I guess what I am asking is why its not completing. Im sure I do more stop and go than these trucks would like, but i do get it on the highway a few times a week for 10-15miles. Shouldn't that be enough?

It should complete in a 10-15 mile stretch. It won't start a regen unless normal operating temps are reached. I know when it's cold I have to drive 10-15 miles just to get the engine up to temp. Also, are you sure it's not completing? The truck doesn't tell you when a regen is complete. The only way you can tell is watching the instant mpg readout or if you have some type of monitor like a CTS.

i dont see where there is anything wrong. You said it regens every 200 miles, what makes you think it doesnt finish? MPG is always going to drop during a regen.

I am having some hesitations and some serious bogging down at takeoff, and in speed transitions, that is why I took it to the shop, they were the ones that said it was not completing the regen. They told me it was plugging up and had attempted to run some ridicules amount of times (20-22), and had not completed.

Ok. Something's wrong then. Not sure what it could be. If the DPF plugs I don't think the truck will run at all but I'm not 100% sure. Hope you get it figured out. Good luck.

you can purchase an EDGE Insight CTS and it will tell you exactly the condition of your DPF.
Also if it doesnt complete every time it shouldnt matter.

How will this edge product affect the warrenty? My dealer seems to think I am being a problem, and i dont want them to have any excuse for not repairing my truck? They were balking at me with an aftermarket air intake!

it is not a tuner so it wont affect warranty, might be a good idea to remove it before going for service just in case they don't know what it is.
