Regen Fuel Mileage

I've had my truck since November but this is my first post. I came from an 06 dodge 5.9 so all this regen stuff is new to me. The other day i saw the regen light come on so i reset the instant mileage and set the cruise at 69 mph it got 12.4 during the cycle lasted 10 min, turn around and got on the same stretch of hwy same direction and reset instant mileage set cruise ang 19.9. Is this normal.

Yep. At least for me and you. My truck was going through a regen per tank initially and now the last two tanks it has been every 100 miles. Not sure what would cause that. I was on a road trip empty at interstate speeds those two tanks. I currently have a little over 8000 miles now.

I have about 3800 miles on my truck and have been running B20 in my truck. The only two regens I have caught were the first one at 1000 miles with petrol diesel in the tank and one at 3700miles with petrol diesel in the tank. I know that it's easy to miss a regen as the last regen I missed the screen saying "cleaning exhaust filter" but could tell when I got out of the truck at work from the exhaust temp/smell. Could it be that B20 burns off the DPF at a lower temp an does not need to actively regen as often? Or am I just missing regens? I just can't imagine having a regen every 200-400 miles. That just doesn't seem like it would be good for the engine.

My truck has almost 2,000 miles and have yet to see the regen light come on.I did smell it once during a regen.Most of my driving is short trips around town and the mileage pulling a trailer is 11-13 mpg.

It really is a short message - maybe 3 - 4 seconds?

Ive got close to 3700 miles on my truck, the first 2000 miles, it seemed like it would go into regen after every fill up. Here the last 1600 miles, it's only gone into regen once. The fuel mileage sucks while in regen, but from what I hear from my buddy who has a 2010 6.4, its ALOT better than his.
