!

Yeah Ive had mine at 8_% twice in the last 15 days... And it wasnt from hours of idling... thats total BS! One was after 2 days of short trips (less then 10 minutes each trip) for a total of 40 minutes of driving (in city)

IM STARTING TO GET REALLY REALLY PISSED OFF! Not to mention the MPG is absolute BS!

yea, funny how they fail to mention that the cleaning of the dpf requires the use of 4.50 fuel. and lot's of it. i say screw the dpf, and i hope i can get the same response from my dealer as cocotte when i'm ready to do mine.

bigvick, from reading your posts for several months now , i really believe your truck is not programmed correctly . my selling dealer didn't know what they were doing so i found a dealer that did and haven't had any problems with a lot of short trips . i do a lot of short trip driving and haven't had any problems now at 9000 miles .

Seriously, I was surprise about the answer I got but it make sense ...think about how much time dealer`s service is loosing on that new crap! Worse, they had to fix the same problem on the same truck more than once! The service manager is going crazy about regen and all and is trying to find a way around it himself(mechanical way) and are even thinking about offering to install delete delete kit on the spot whitout telling dodge or cummins they do!!!
