Roy's Regen Rules/info:

ROY'S REGEN RULES/INFO:

1. fuel milage will drop significanyly...normal
2. If u need to shut down during regen, then step on brake to idle down then shut off.saves leaving an engine full of fuel.
3. Will take prob 30 min of driving to clear regen....normal
4. If regen while need to stay in idle be carefull where park so do not start fire.
5.Drive hard or tow? = more frequent regens!!

Good info. If you shut down during regen, does it restart when you do?

BTW: Does the Ford have a light to let you know if a regen is going on or do you tell by the engine rpm?

Yes it does restart if you shut down before it finish's.. I would like to see a light to tell us when regen occurs but no there is no light.

MORE ROY'S REGEN STUFF

I feel you know its happening by

1. reset your gas milage minder to 0 and see if only getting 10 mpg(I know u r loosin your milage, just write it down and factor in later.)

2. If not sure in regen and really gotta know that bad you can pull over and put in park and see if it's "idled-up".

2. looses the crispness in its hard shifts/feels slightly boggy at least to me, its very suttle but when i think its doin it i cheeck the idle to confrim it is in regen and i drove it listening and feeling the eng so i would know when it does it( again it's very suttle) but if you get to get the feel for your truck after 4-5 times of varifing you will be able to tell with out varifing it.


look guys i know im crazy and this is all sick obsessive compulsive stuff, but im havin fun. so use the info if you can.
I want to know its gone into regen so i learn what to expect of the eng at full load in regen pulling my RV up the steep part of the smokies.

Now way! Good stuff. GM has an indicator light in the medium duty trucks, but I do not think they are putting it in the pickups. If it makes this much difference on truck performance, it would be nice to know when it is happening.

I suppose most truck drivers will never know the difference, just ***** about how the truck is running.

I have never noticed it when underway towing or not. I've got 2500 miles on the truck and the only time I've "caught" a regen is at idle because the speed bumped up some.

Excellent stuff

Thanks for the info Quick. I like all of the information on this site so please keep it up. When you spend as much money on these trucks as we do, I really like knowing everything I can about them.

The harder you work a vehicle with aftertreatment, the LESS frequent your regens will be.

Ideling will INCREASE regen frequency, a LOT.

Bad fuel (non-ULSD) will cause the DPF to become unreactive, increasing regen frequency, and limiting DPF life.
