You seem to be knowledgable, so maybe you can answer my ?, I have posted on many boards, no answers. A guy I know drives his truck to work to and from about 5 miles each way, during the winter. MAYBE takes a short trip on the weekends to get groceries etc, but generally not. During hte summer he pulls a boat, rv etc pretty much every weekend. So what will happen to him in the winter, will he have to take it on trips???? He lives in the city so 30 min of city drivng is impossible, will high idle complete the process(can he leave it run in his driveay???? What if he doesnt let it regen , itll plug and ealer service is required correct???? What is gm doing about servicing dpfs?? Exchange????????? The machines to capture the soot are about 10,000 dollars so I am sure not every shop will have a dpfcleaning machine, but how much will exchanges be etc.
