Less than 1k miles and 4 regens!!!???

What in the heck??

First-70% hwy 30% in town.

Second-I don't drive like a maniac maybe floored it like 5 times!

Third-Even a better reason to get a Dpf delete and tune!

Just like to see what some of ya'll gettin for regenes vs miles driven.
I know idle time has alot to do bout this but I don't idle much.Was gonna get a dpf delete and tune soon anyways just makes it a little easier to get now.

Thanks.

i've heard it range from every 100 miles to about 450 miles. so you're not out of the ordinary. and i agree with the delete and tune!! good choice!

I just did a 900 mile trip with 4 regens - I was stuck in traffic for almost 2 hours on one leg with a lot of sitting stopped and the rest hwy - half of the trip with 10.3K behind me. One regen lasted almost 20 miles. I am ready to do the deletes just wish my wallet was too.

Thatis my plan but with son starting day care, new house etc. it's gonna be a while

I have no need for the crazy HP - I just want a little bit more and an increase in mpg - from my research the xrt is the cheapest way to go about it and provides me with what I want/need.

I have just over 2K miles on my 2010 and my last 3 regens were after 237, 239, and 293 miles. After my 3rd tank of Chevron diesel, it looks like I can go about 20% further between regens as compared to some of the cheaper stations in my area. Not great but every little bit helps. Chevron is more expensive but it regens less so it is probably a wash on cost.....I have saved up about half of my nest egg for the DPF/DOC delete and Spartan tuner.....I hope to have it by Christmas!
