Regeneration

Hey

Anybody notice that the cruise control drives like its had a few beers when regen kicks in?

Not a big deal or anything to worry about but it is a noticeable change. More of a characteristic. Seems to be slowly and slightly pumping the accelerator. I can hear it more than feel it. No noticeable movement of RPM. Regen was at 65 mph, 335 miles on truck. Lasted about 15 miles.

All my touring photos. (except the two massive trips in 2011-soon to be posted eventually)

I am having trouble knowing when the regeneration is finished. Is the only apparent way to know for sure is the instant MPG display showing relative instant fuel usage?

I miss the message light staying on until the process was finished as it did in the 2008s.

On my first 3 regenerations, one of course started 1/4 mile from my destination.

I also can't tell when it's finished. I never miss the message that it has started, but I never see anything telling me it's finished. Even on my 08 after I had it reflashed, you could go into the message center and it would tell you that it's cleaning. The new one does not. I guess they are trying to make it more transparent to the driver, but I'd like to know what's going on.

To the OP: I've never noticed any fluctuation in anything when cruise is set when it starts regen. Maybe it'll go away with a couple thousand miles.

Yep maybe so. Its very shuttle, I'm surprised I noticed it.

The message came up and I was seeing the MPG drop. After about 15 miles it stopped going down and started coming back up.

Just towed 200 miles at 70 MPH. Looks like 12 MPG. That's a 20% increase over the 6.4l.
