Regen frequency

Does anyone else average only 150 to 200 miles between regens?

I always thought there was a problem with my 13 that averaged 125 to 175 miles between regens. I traded it in on a new 15 and have been averaging 175 to 200 miles between regens. I live in rural, hilly country with very few stoplights. I've tried almost every station around for better fuel but I think my area just has crappy fuel.

Mine has done that same thing for as long as I have been keeping track. I have 6" lift and 37" tires so it is like I am going up hill all the time. I get 12-13mpg no matter if town or highway unless I have a tail wind then I get 15-16.

That's right where I'm at.

I also regen pulling my 9k travel trailer even though I know I'm working the truck hard (oil temps 220-230) egts roughly in the 700s.

I live in southern Idaho and we must have some crappy fuel here too.

Makes we wonder how the Duramax guys (if the guys on the forums are honest) ~500 miles between regens when the 6.7 Powerstroke was supposed to be so much more efficient.

Ways to reduce regen frequency:
1. Eliminate short (under 25 mile) trips
2. Increase cetane level with a cetane booster (I like Opti-Lube Summer Plus) to reduce soot. Off the shelf options include Stanadyne, PM22 and Diesel Kleen
3. Use a fuel catalyst like Archoil's AR6200 to reduce soot
4. Add the %DPF Full to the gauge screen so you can tell when a regen is needed, then take it for a 30 mile run to let it complete.
5. Run either a 5 Star or DP-Tuner daily tune. Combined with the above, the tunes increased my intervals from about 350 miles to 500 miles.
If I run short trips, the interval will drop.
I use the aCar app to log all my regens so I can tell what the interval is without guessing.
FWIW, most of the country with the exception of CA and TX has low cetane diesel fuel

[QUOTE=radium;17388785]2016 6.7 xlt super cab filter clean 300 too 450/QUOTE]

I'm in your boat with my '16' 300-450 between cleaning. In reality I don't pay much attention to it till it actually starts a clean to see how low the % goes down before it stops cleaning which by the dash display screen is 30% almost everytime. I always have a 2.5 gallon jug of def for when the 500 mile display shows then I'll dump that in. When near a wally world I'll pick up another 2 jugs again, 1 to top the def tank off and 1 for when the 500 mile warning shows again.

300 miles +/- 30 is what I get on my 15. A little more frequent when we're on the beach hauling the truck camper. I do use cetane boost, pm22.

Not that you said that, but DEF has nothing to do with regens. DEF is sprayed into the SCR while driving to reduce NOX.

Ok I think it's straightened out in the brain matter after a quick read.

My 16 goes about every other tank per regen (400 to 500 miles). And to 2nd what Skimuggs said, avoid the short trips. I think idle time may affect that too. I usually only warm my truck for 3 to 5 mins when cold and rarely just let it idle.

Ah, I so wish I could find someone to do this. So far 2 dealers that I have contacted have just stared at me blankly like I was asking them to mount wings to the headlights. One asked that I leave it with them for a few days, and they would figure it out, but also said come back in 3 weeks to do that.
