7 Regens in 900 miles?

Just got back from a trip to AZ. pulling the toy hauler, the truck would regen every tank of fuel sometimes twice. 3 times the Sync system asked to run a report, I did. Get home and check the report and it says that the warning is to drive the truck for at least 20 miles above 30mph. I was doing 65mph pulling 9000#.

Taking it in to the dealer Tuesday.

Truck has 15k on it!

What do you think, clogged DPF?

The regen thing is a major PIA. I really like the truck other wise and was regretting getting rid of my 7.3 Excursion. I deleted the filter (Proflow) and used a computer to delete the regen cycle. Fuel economy (which is what I am more interested in, but love the response) is 16.3 mixed, city and rural roads. About 21-22 highway.

On short trips from my house to town 6miles, the thing would regen for weeks. I would have to take it for a long drive, to get it to get off of the regen cycle.

Down side, there is some smell. Still runs pretty clean. I have a 2009 SD 250.

I don't think there is anything wrong with it that the dealer can fix. 7 in 900 is every 128 miles. My 2008 regens every 250 miles like clockwork unless its pulling, and then more often. 9000 pounds with your lead foot? 128 miles is not out of line.

Check your sensors, run clean fuel and then delete the dpf later on. You will be happy you did !

Dealer called me last night. The service advisor, diesel tech and ford engineer were all there and said it's normal but they'll check the DPF today.
I would accept it being normal if it had done this since day 1. But this truck has always regen'd once every 700 to 1000 miles.

If they change the DEF, I asked them to keep the old one cause I would like to have it. They said yes cause it's a maintenence item. Then I'll delete once it's replaced.

I have the recent 11b23 software update and now my regens are 600-800 miles vs the old flash that was every 200 miles or so. I don't see how 128 miles betwen regens is normal but when I complained to my dealer about 200 miles they said "that's within specs". Whatever that means...
