Duramax is keeping up w/the emission stanards, dont know where ford is. Since you mentioned it, whats dodge and cummins doing w/these dpf's?????? I have been asking around about duramax and cant seem to get an answer from anyone. I know They will go through regen modes on their own, however every once and awhile need to be taken off and cleaned out. Many states considering ash as hazardous waste. From waht I understand machines are 10,000 dollars + to blow them out and collect soot. Caterpillar is doing exhange program (take old one off and throw "remaned" one on.). DPF by federal law on light duty trucks cant require cleaning in less then 100,000 miles. However if somone puts ci4 oil in or high sulfer diesel, could reequre cleaning alot sooner and from waht I can tell none of the big 3 have a plan figured out for this. What if I bought one of these tomorrow and 1 month from noow after my bone head employee dumps off road fuel in it etc its clogged, none of them seem to know. Anyone on here know anything about the big 3.
