It takes mine about 10 miles of moderate speed to complete. It doesn't tell you when it's done. I have a monitor and I can tell when it's regening.

I just say "ok" and it does its thing. I have never determined when it ends. Although, yesterday morning I pulled the truck out of the garage and let it high idle in the driveway for about 10 minutes before I was ready to leave. When I came back out into the garage, there was a heavy smell of Ford diesel exhaust that I hadn't smelled since my '06. So, I'm not sure what it had going on.......but I liked it.

Using the instant mpg is how I tell when it's done.

Instant MPG is a sure fire way of telling when it's done. At highway speed I'm running about 19-20 MPG in my truck normally, when regeneration is in process it's closer to 11-12. As soon as it's done it jumps back up to 19-20 MPG.

Like other have said. Watch your instant MPG's. I have timed my once the regen starts. It takes about 9 1/2 minutes to complete a regen. I typically regen after driving at highway speed so everything it at full operating temp and continue at highway speed through the whole regen with the 9 min regens. It has occasionally started the regen while hopping around town and has not completed before shutting down. I don't know if it takes longer or not if it starts before you at full operating temps or going slower.
