It depends on various things, driving habits, under load, Def fluid. I know you mention it's New so how many miles on the ticker thus far? I average a Regen about every 200 miles thats city and highway driving. Give us as much in the way of details as possible.

If you blink, you will surley miss it as it does not stay displayed to long. I'm sure your truck has done a few regens up to this point. Just remember to keep the Def tank full. I use Motorcraft Def fluid bought at my local dealer. Comes with a nice filling hose so you won;t overspill and screw up your new paint. Also, drain your water seperator at least monthly to keep water out of the fuel system. A little cetane booster during refueling is a good idea as well. These trucks are very interactive which is why I love 'em so much...

Don't forget to drain the water! It's located under the driver side frame. theres a yellow valve that opens and drains out your fuel/water. Let it drain for about 20 seconds and then completely tighen to keep any air out of your fuel system. You may even want to drain into a clear container and let sit a few days to see what kind of fuel your putting into your new truck.

Yes, one has nothing to do with the other. The primary fuel filter located in your Diesel fuel conditioning module filters out impurities and water in your diesel fuel before sending it to your Fuel pump. Water collects and needs to be drained regularly to keep it out of your engine. Your warranty will not cover engine failures due to your neglect in doing this. Make sure you read your Diesel supplement guide that came with your truck.
