Besides the brief message it flashes on the screen, you can run a system's check by hitting "Setup" then "Reset". If your truck is in Regen, it'll be the last message displayed on the check.

Sometimes it can take 30 minutes. The worst thing you can do is shut the truck off while it's doing a regen. It'll keep going into regen mode [from the beginning] until you let it finish.

So, if you keep taking short trips while it's in regen and it doesn't finish, you'll just be dumping more and more fuel down the pipes.

This is a major PITA though. I hated driving around waiting for the truck to stop regen. One time I made it 20 miles away from home before it stopped.

About every 600 miles or so. Sometimes more. Sometimes less. It all depends on how you're driving the truck.

I think a lot of short trips will really clog the DPF up quickly.

If you wonder why these things burn a lot of fuel, this would be one of the reasons why.

Smoke?

My truck is doing all the similar things ;(

When my truck smokes its a bluish/whitish color and usually only lasts about 30 seconds to a minute.

There is also a strong burnt fuel smell when the truck is running and after a short trip to town. Are these issues something to worry about?

With the smoke.......How can I can tell if its a turbo seal, something else, or if its just normal?

Strong fuel smell could be a sticking injector, the blue-ish smoke is probably fuel or oil, sticking injectors are far more common than burning oil or bad turbo seals in a 6.4. I just had to replace my #1 injector. It had a blue haze at idle but ran perfect warmed up...it also was throwing a cylinder balance/contribution code...it wouldn't hurt to get it checked out, an injector is cheaper than a motor...hope it's only a fluke...but don't ignore things with this motor, it can adapt to run very well when issues arise, which can mask problems until things break or melt...

There should only be white smoke with a working dpf on the truck, and only when it is in regen and burning soot out of the filter...a leaking injector could overwhelm/overheat the filter. These piezo injectors can be touchy, earlier years seem to have more problems...
