Regeneration Questions - Exhaust Filter etc.

Just looking for some input and general info.

I have a 2012 Ford F250 6.7 L

I have about 1800 kms (1120 miles) on it. I have yet to notice a Cleaning Exhaust Filter or a Drive to Clean Exhaust System message pop up message centre.

Any thoughts? Just concerned / curious.

Manual says with normal driving I should see this every 161 km to 805 km
(100 - 500 miles)

Also in the manual is says there should be an "Exhaust filter" page in Gauge Mode, but all I get is the following: Engine Oil / Tranny Temp - Compass - Blank Screen.

Thanks

It only appears for a couple seconds on the info screen.
Maybe you didn't notice?
Or maybe you have led foot and it doesn't need to go in regen?
I drive over 80mph+ on the highway and rarely ever see it.

It is possible I didnt see it I guess. I drive about 70 mph, fair bit of HWY.

It flashes the message for 2 seconds and is gone.

I think once, maybe twice in my 78,000 miles I've seen the "Drive to Clean " message, Which will stay lite for as long as the truck needs you to keep driving to finish an Active Regen.

Remember these trucks have two types of Regen, Active when the computer dumps extra fuel down the exhaust to clean the DPF and Passive where anytime you exceed 572F in your exhaust it will clean what it can. If you do a lot of the type of work that creates higher exhaust temps, your passive regen will do most of the cleaning.

Freeway driving at 70 mph = 470 to 490 temps
Towing at 70 mph = 800+ temps.
So passive regens occur more when you tow or are climbing grades.
