Why did it display different these two times? Is my truck trying to tell me it was about to clog up my dpf or something?
When you drive for extended periods, the DPF is able to passively regen which helps to lengthen out the time between active regens (active regen = CLEANING EXHAUST SYSTEM). If the truck is in active regen and it gets interrupted a few times (not being able to complete the cycle), you will get the DRIVE TO CLEAN EXHAUST SYSTEM message, which is basically telling you to go find a highway and drive for 15-20 minutes (varies) to complete the active regen cycle. Eventually, if you never get to finish the active regen cycle, at some point you will find yourself with a CEL and a trip to the dealer.
The best way to deal with this is to TUNE & DELETE!
