Partical Fliter ??

My dad's truck just left the shop. The check engine came on and they replaced the partical filter b/c it was clogged? The mechanic said it could have been a bad tank of fuel? Only has 4500 miles..Any thoughts? Thanks !!

These filters are getting replaced a lot lately so your father is not alone. My tailpipe has been black since about 800 miles. Been afraid to take it in cause the truck runs so good.

Don't take it in, the trucks with cracked DPF's regen less and get better mileage...

My thoughts exactly. I'll wait until 90K miles or so before I 'notice' that it needs to be replaced. :
