Sick and Tired

Normally my truck re-gens every 300 miles or so, like clock work. I always drive and let the re-gen finish using my instant fuel mileage deal to get an idea of when it is done. Something happened, this last tank of Diesel my truck went into re-gen every 50 miles. What the hell gives? Anyone have any idea why my truck would need to clean the DPF that often? Could bad diesel have anything to do with it?

At any rate, In another week, I'm getting rid of all that shat under my truck... Just looking for answers from more educated people on why that would've happened.

Is it mostly city driving, stop and go?

If its really that often and you are letting them finish, I'd say you probably have a leaking injector tip.

18.5 with the regens. That's d@mn good mileage. I get just a hair better with my 6.4 and its tuned.

If I could do 18.5 with the DPF, I'd think I'd keep it .

I also did 18.9 mpg while averaging 78-79 mph completely stock with 150 miles on the clock. Truck regens at 200 mile intervals like clockwork, sometime even more depending on driving conditions.

I was happy with that avg but without regens it would have been close to 20 that would be sweet.

I don't know your education level, so don't know if I am more educated. If you finished the eighth grade...you might have me beat!!!

My truck did regen's more frequently for a time, then back to not so frequent....I do not know the 'system'...but my overall milages kicks the stock 09's tail, every friggen day of the week..
