400 miles and 3 regens

Just bought my 2012 a couple weeks ago and have seen the cleaning exhaust filter message 3 times. Only have 400 miles on the truck. I had a couple 6.4's which were deleted immediately so I have no experience with a Ford in stock form but something tells me this isn't normal. Seems excessive. Anybody had issues with this on a brand new truck? I wanted to keep this one stock but not if it is constantly going into regen I may have to delete.

Regeneration depends on driving habits, fuel quality, etc. It is a function of soot being created. I have seen mine regen every 120-160 miles....so I don't think that's abnormal.

There are pro's and con's to this emission equipment.
It's nice to know we're not putting particulate matter in the air, something near and dear to asthmatic people. It's nice to not have a "smelly" diesel.

But, I do miss some of the smell of diesel exhaust, and it does take a toll on mileage (and our wallets - due to lower mileage, higher vehicle cost and maintenance).

I don't think there's a perfect solution.
