Trust me mxer0022, you can't be any more **** than me. I made my own label for the Enerburn. 1:30 dose it was easy. 1 ml per gal.. at 1:25 dose it's a little harder has it comes out to 1.18 per gallon, or something like that. I use Metric because I've switch to the large Stay-Bil bottle to carry my Enerburn in. It's got a much better spout and better measurements. I'd spoken to Jane about changing her bottles, but she said it would be to complicated for shipping etc. I haven't bought any of the Better Deisel formula yet as I've still got quite a bit of the Enerburn, so will have to reprint some new labels when I do.

Yeah I plan on switching to the FBC as soon as I'm done with the two small bottles of enerburn I have left.

I haven't done much reading of this post but I have a quick question:

Do the 500 mile forced regens last as long as they would without enerburn or does it help shorten those too like it does with the "full filter" regens?

From my experience. the Enerburn treated engine regen lasts just as long when you hit your 500 mile mark (apron 15-18 miles at 70mph). Where I have found the improvement is if it regens early. Then I've seen it go from 2.7 (100% soot load) to .8(0%) in about 7.5 miles.

Cool. I just ordered the better diesel FBC. My current regens happen once a tank or roughly every 300 miles. I also drive pretty slow and idle a lot on the ranch. I'm curious to see how this will help.

Black smoke

Well I would appreciate any other advice as to what to do. Iíve personally scanned my engine with forescan, brought it to two different dealers, including a diesel specialist shop. The truck is running absolutely perfect. Mileage is great and re-Jens are just where they should be if not longer in between regens. But the truck continues to blow Blacksmoke on acceleration. I discussed the crack DPF theory, but all three told me that the sensors would find intake and Output pressure differential and throw a code. All three told me to drive it and not worry about it. Iím at a loss and worried that thereís a potential problem coming down the road. The truck has 141,000 miles on it. My regens clean all the way down to .8 at -2% DPF load.

Black smoke is a sign of over fueling. Does it clean out after you drive it a bit or is it always under acceleration?

Black smoke

It seems to clear up after been driving it. I brought that up to the technicians but they said that my MPG was fine and everything else seem to be fine so they didnít think it was a problem. My MPG is still around 18 miles to the gallon figured out by pencil and paper. I havenít told my trailer yet to see if itís going to do it continuously right now itís only on acceleration

Sounds to me like you have a leaking injector. That's why it smokes after it sits then clears up after you've driven it a bit. Post up a new thread on the forum and see if anyone else has any other suggestions.

One interesting thing I have found with Enerburn is my regens alternate between a "full" 500 mi. regen which will last roughly 25 mi. and take soot down to 20-25% per in dash gauge, it usually starts with in dash gauge reading 90-95%. Then next regen will be the short one, usually only lasting 15 mi. and only taking soot % down to 50%.

Its as if the computer is trying to compensate for cleaner burning and can't quite figure out how to handle not being at 100% @ 500 mi.
With that said I am happy with results that I am seeing with Enerburn as the shorter regen seems to be saving a bit of fuel and hopefully keeping DPF cleaner.

My truck is a '15 with just short of 90,000 mi.

A crack isn't necessarily enough to cause the sensors to pick up on an issue and throw a code. Ford's own troubleshooting procedure for diagnosing a cracked DPF addresses this in step by step detail. I had the same issue for a year before I got around to having it replaced under warranty. At the time, I got to see the pinpoint test they were required to do to determine for sure the DPF was cracked, and eligible for warranty replacement. The crack is just enough to let out some of the soot and particulate, but not all of it, so there is still sufficient differential pressure being recorded for the computer to be happy, and regen every 500 miles when it is mandatory. If all of those dealers and techs are telling you otherwise, I would really be surprised they are actually troubleshooting, rather than speculating (talking out their *****).

Well EO2SeaBee. I do think you are correct. And I'm liking the fact that you let it go for a year. Evidently it didn't hurt the truck. Financially it would definitely help me to wait a bit to get it replaced. 2k+ is an expensive proposition when on a fixed retirement income. I've got an appointment to my 3rd dealer in St. Augustine Tuesday. Hopefully I'll be able to convince them to do a little more troubleshooting and determine for sure if it's the DPF. At least I won't waste the 100 bucks this time, as they will apply the 100 bucks to my repair, no matter if I have it done now or later. Unlike other "youngsters" I hate seeing black smoke coming out of a beautiful truck lol.

It's seams odd that if there's a reduction in regens that there's no fuel savings.

While towing recently I had about 325 miles to empty on the gauge. Then a regen started. During the regen the miles to empty shot up to over 600! The regen seemed to go OK, didn't take too long and it went all the way to 0%.

Having to measure a dose for a less than full fill is kind of a pain.

Actually I am seeing a better MPG average, as it doesn't regen but about once per tankfuls. Right now I'm thinking I'm just going to let it be, and live with the small amount of soot. As long as it's not throwing a code or causing any harm. No one has told me that it was harmful yet, except for the environment.
