All my regens have lasted between 30-40 miles to complete. It was like this before using Enerburn and also after going through a 16oz bottle of Enerburn. I've never been able to go the full 500 miles between regens as the process usually starts between 300-350 miles. This has been in all kinds of conditions...highway driving, mountain driving, towing, cold and warm climates. I've even had the regen process stop early during a drive because the egt's got too low.
I hate the idea of wasting fuel during a regen process and considering doing a delete. It was the best thing I ever did to my '08.

With my '08, my regens would complete in about 15-20 miles, whereas my '17 takes 30-40.

You issue sounds EXACTLY like what I experienced. It totally perplexed the 3 Ford dealers that I took it to, as I was throwing absolutely no codes. Even took it to a 4th independent diesel expert, and he didn't know why either. Finally someone on this forum suggested (actually he just stated a fact) that I had a CRACKED def. Made total sense as the dpf wasn't catching all the soot. Since it had no symptoms and the truck was running excellently, there was no way I was going to pay 4500 dollars for a DPF replacement. I scoured the internet and Craigs list, and was lucky enough to find a used complete DPF for my truck year. The guy had removed it to Delete his truck at 20,000 miles. all he asked for it was 400 bucks if I'd pick it up. Drove 150 miles, picked it up, had it installed by an independent ($180.00) and it completely cured the issue.
This had nothing at all to do with the Enerburn. My truck is totally back to normal, and I'm still using Enerburn. The Regens are what they were before. Around 400 t0 500 with normal driving.
With the cracked DPF, I was hitting 500 mile mark and the DPF load was only about 40%. It just wasn't catching the soot.

My truck is at the dealer for an EGR related check engine light. I'm wondering if they're going to call and ask what additives have been used. I have receipts for PM-23a that I'll show them. I wouldn't think that EGR has that much relation to additives anyhow.

I can't see where any additive would make a difference, so just tell them you weren't using any. Nothing in the book says you HAVE to use additive

Any additive that reduces soot should result in a cleaner EGR. PM22a is not one of them as it mostly adds lubricity with very little cetane boost, but if they ask, PM22a is all you used. Let us know what the outcome is.
