Cleaning Exhaust filter

We have had the truck for three weeks(and loving it) and have 1600miles on it. I have only had the "cleaning exhaust filter" message show up twice. The first time was at 746miles, the second was at 1490(744 miles after the first). I was thinking the filter would be cleaned out more often, is this a normal interval? Appox. 800miles was pulling a 6k camper, about 550 hwy unloaded, the rest city. I am not concerned about that interval as everything seems to be working fine. Just thought it would regen more often?

I would say you just missed the message it only stays on for 5 or so seconds. Mine regens about every 200 miles.

I regen about every 1000 miles. I track them with my gas cubby app. I've had 9 in the 10,000 miles I have on mine. I do feel they are becoming more frequent. My first two were 1500 miles apart.
Mine is a 250 4x4 cc sb...

I drive 85-90% hwy and hardly tow anything. I just haul construction tools and supplies in the bed. Trust me I still think DPF's are crap! I feel they cut the life span of the motor in half and waste a ton of fuel. They also cost an as$ load and need maintained costing more! My friend drives a Peterbuilt w/DPF and they say he should get 8mpg and he is getting 4mpg. That's just crazy if you ask me. 50%?!

Found some info in the owners manual...page 55 of the diesel engine supplement, section reguarding passive regeneration. Says the filter can "self clean" if the exhaust temp is high enough to burn off "some" soot. Wondering if thats why some will go longer It is possible I didn't see the message pop up on the instrument cluster, but I thought I would have seen it a few more times than what I did. According to the manual it should regen about every 100-500 miles. Either way, totally happy with the truck so far

Towing = higher EGTs, so it would have the tendency to already burn out what's in there, and then unloaded highway doesn't produce much soot.

It's normal. If you start getting them ALL the time, then there is a problem.

****ing emissions equipment is costing millions, maybe even billions to be fixed, since they seem to break on a regular basis
