Regen question

Future powerstroke owner here. I always wondered do you guys who own diesels drive daily with complete disregard to truck being in regen or do you try to figure out if truck is in regen and continue driving even though you are at you destination?

as long as you don't have a "drive to clean" message, you just drive it like a normal car.

Yep, just let the truck do it's thing and use it normally.

Unless you are idling it a LOT, the system will maintain itself.

For me, the use of an additive keeps the soot down too (Enerburn/ FBC).

I havent seen it regen yet when I was ready to park, usually happens on the highway. I get a kick out of the exhaust temps rising like they do. Just had my 10k mile service completed this last weekend.

People make too big a deal out of regens. Just let the truck take care of it and forget about it unless you see a "Drive to Clean" message

Trucks in an active regn process when shifted to Park will see the active regen stopped by the PCM.

Glad to here all this. I always wonder what I would do if it was in regen and with everyone's busy lifestyle nowadays what to do when I got to where I was going. I do drive an hour one way to work so I was hoping that would take care of it.

Agree on this statement. My trucks idle a lot, so much so that my 2012 had equivalent to 65K miles of drive time in idle time. The truck would rev itself up even in park when it sensed the PDF was due for a regen. That truck had 287K actual driven miles and 65K in idle equivalent miles on it when I traded it in August of 2017.

And for the DEF reoccurring argument, all of my DEF is bought and pumped at a Loves Truck Stop. The same pumps the big rigs use. Never an issues on the 3 6.7L trucks I have owned.

I never seen a regen till 10000 miles and I put the forscan code in. It works silently in the background. I also found by watching it when you get low in speed (under 25mph) when its in regen it will shut itself off. I live 3 miles back from the main road in my subdivision and when I drive that and am in regen it quits and stops going down percentage wise. So its smarter than we are.

Never heard of Enerburn so had to look it up. Based upon your experience is their claims of 50% reduced wear and tear, 15% increased MPG, 10% reduced NOX and 4% increased HP accurate?

What's your testimony on this product?
