JOhn G and haz mat 19 are correct. 6.7 L trucks have a dpf (diesel particulate filter) that traps carbon etc and burns it off at a later date and time. Higher sulfer diesel (anything over 15parts per million) will clog the filter. Off road diesel will remain 500 ppm until 2010 as it is my understanding. If you clog the dpf the stealer will have to take it off and manually put it on a machine and clean it. I dont know (and would like to ) how stealers (esp dodge in this case) are gonna do dpf cleanings. Cat said until machines are in many stealers, they were going to do an exchange program. (you take a clogged one in htey put one on and send yours off to get cleaned. I would imagine since not many diesels are sold at some dealerships dodge will offer the same (not ever stealer will have a 10,000 dollar machine,) but dont know and would ask. If you dont clog your dpf(ie put wrong fuel in) it should be self sufficient (ie not need any outside maintenance) until 100000 miles.
