Re-Gen Notice

Hi. I only have my 2014 F250 Lariat for 350 miles so far. This morning I notice the mpg were dropping and I thought it was in re-gen mode but did not see where to find if this was it or not. I am comming from an 2008 f350 xlt that I had to push the reset button to see if it was still in re-gen mode. Thanks.

The notice only pops up for a split second in the instrument cluster, no need to acknowledge it and pretty much the only way to know if it is in regen mode is to catch that msg. and dropping mpg...congrats on new truck

Exactly what he said. Wish there was a way to verify, but just look for the 6 to 8mpg on the cluster.

Thanks. Sometimes I would drive the extra 3 to 4 miles on my other truck so it would finish the re-gen before I parked it at home. No need to finish the re-gen now?

Correct. The Regen process will resume the next time you drive your truck. Unless the message center tells you to Drive to clean exhaust filter than don't worry about it. Now saying that, if you drive primarily short trips, then make sure once a week you take her out on the highway and drive her for a good hour or more at highway speeds, Diesels Love to be ran!

It does help to finish the regen, because otherwise it will start up midway through your next drive. It won't hurt anything to stop it in the middle, but you'll eventually want to let it go through a full cycle. However, Ford didn't really give us any monitoring capability stock. If I have the time, I also like to go ahead and let the regen finish. If I notice MPG down, I usually drive another 10 minutes or until the MPG returned back to normal. It's much easier to tell at highway speeds, so I hop on the loop or get to the edge of town.

I have added an Edge Insight, and it has an indicator letting you know when regen is occurring as well as ability to display DPF soot concentration so you know when it's coming. I had to call them up to get it to work with my 2014 (they tricked it into reading it as a 2013, and it seems to work); they'll probably have an update out later this year to fully support the '14s.

I went from running my CTS in my old 08 ram 1500 to my 13 350 and its crazy how much more you can monitor on the diesels. The ability to monitor DPF load is worth its weight in gold. Id definitely recommend anyone with a new truck buy a CTS before any other mods!
