It depends on your driving habits and where most of your driving is done. Mine is mostly highway and only regens ever couple of thousand miles.

You probably are not even noticing it when it goes into regen.
Should be going into regen every 600 miles (approx) .

When I take my used f450 2008 job 1 3 month ago, the regeneration came every 150-200 miles, now since 1 month the regen come every 300-350 miles, my drive habits no change. Perhaps a fuel quality, but I fill in same fuel station, perhaps the temperature which go better around 22C ? The regen is a strange and unpredictable system !!

A new truck should not regen for 2-3 thousand miles. There is not enough soot build up to justify a regen. The same applies if you have a DPF put on, the tech does a dpf reset and there is no regen for 2-3 thousand.

The computer initiates a regen every 600 or so miles, whether it needs it or not.

I second the notion that the O.P. probably is not seeing the very brief notification. Initially I didn't see mine, but I felt it. Then got a letter notifying me of some sort of Customer Satisfaction (optional) firmware update. Took Ford up on the offer. New firmware displays "CLEANING FILTER" for the entire duration of about 10 minutes every 250 miles like clockwork. I reset Trip 2 every time I see it come up. More often when towing, or when the cycle doesn't get to complete before I have to stop. Never longer than 250 miles.

Oh, and one recurring complaint I voice to my dealer is the lack of a regen counter. Perhaps there is one that can be read on the CAN bus, but there should be one mere mortal owners can view.
