After reading the owner's manual, the manual states the truck may regen as often as every 100 miles, which is what I've been experiencing while driving throught the keys where road speeds are relatively low (45-55mph on average).
It is my guess, that at low speeds and not towing anything, while in the "Keys", the truck does not get hot enough to stay in "Passive Regen", so in my case, it goes into "Active Regen" approximately every 100-120 miles and lasts for no more than 8-10 miles. When I get up to the mainland and get on the turnpike where I can open the truck up (75-85mph) I have noticed the "Regens" are less frequent.
So......I'm guessing, that while the truck is under a moderate load, it gets hot enough to stay in "Passive Regen", and when not under a load and at low speeds, the truck will "Active Regen" more frequently.
My only question is.....with the more frequent "Regens", will the 6.7L start "Making Oil" ?
