It works well in summer too, maybe not quite so dramatic. I had summer regen intervals of 437 to over 500 miles with most at 500 miles.

Ok so I just finished a regent monitoring my soot levels on forscan and my regent started at 1.48 g/L and finished at 0.72 g/L. I should have looked at it before I started using Enerburn but never did. What's the average start and stop levels of soot on a truck not using it? I noticed that the soot levels dropped rather quick when it first started but when it got to about 0.9 g/L it slowed way down. Is this normal as well?

Soot load has been dramatically reduced and regen time has been reduced, so that is a fuel savings by itself.

While soot gpl is great to monitor to see how well Enerburn is working, I am not sure Ford uses it as I have had regens start as low as .90. Ford seems to use a combination of %DPF Full and time to start regens. Prior to Enerburn, regens seemed to trigger at gpl of 3.40 to 3.60. Ford's mandatory 500 mile regen may be based on ash management vs soot management if there isn't much soot.
Even with no soot, %DPF seems to reach 90% to Full at 500 miles.

That's the behavior I see as well. Prior to Enerburn, gpl of 3.4 to 3.6, and %load on forescan at 125 - 135%. The dash gage would always hit 100% a minute or two ahead of the regen starting. After Enerburn, the gpl might only be 1.5, the % load on forescan 50%, yet the dash gage will be nearing 100% as I near 500 miles. Again, when it hits 100% on the dash, I'm going to get a regen within minutes. It burns down quickly at first, then levels out towards the finish, Enerburn or not.

I have been getting similar results using Archoil AR6200 in the fuel and AR 9100 in the oil. my usual regen's were around 200-225 miles, I have had consistent full timed out regen cycles of 500 miles the past 3 fill ups, and those are 20-25% soot levels at the 500 mile mark.

Here is what I'm confused about. I haven't had a regent start any later than 360 miles since I started using Enerburn. I'm on my 5th tank in the clean and condition dose. I've reset my trip meter religiously since I started using it to see how it was doing. Still haven't hit the 500 mile mark.

I can't explain it, but try going to the maintenance dose of 1 oz per 25-26 gallons and see if anything changes. What is your daily driving like? If only doing 2-4 miles at a time, it may not get hot enough and your regens aren't completing causing the next one to start soon. If you are short tripping, try a 20 mile run. My regens last from 12-30 miles, even under similar conditions.

I'm about to start my treatments of Enerburn with 900 miles on the truck. I was wondering if anybody has had an issues with their fuel filters clogging up once treatments start? I see that was mentioned on the information document that was sent with the additive.

I haven't and started with 42,000 miles on the truck but have used Opti-Lube Summer Plus and/or AR6200 since day one. With only 900 miles on your truck, you aren't going to have microbial or other build up.

OK thanks. I also use a fuel additive with every fill up.

I was getting 500 mile intervals with AR6200 and AR9100 while I was commuting 76 miles daily. Once I retired, the interval dropped to about 360 miles due to shorter trips. Since switching to Enerburn, most intervals are 500 miles again with only one at 437 miles.

I purchased this product and only have been using it for a couple tanks. I used to add the Opti-Lub for lubrication purposes. I wonder if that additive is even necessary now.

I have used Opti-Lube Summer Plus since my first fill up over 47,000 miles ago. When I started using AR6200, I continued with OL, but contacted Archoil. They said there was no conflict but not necessary to use OL because AR6200 had lube. I quit OL for a couple of tanks and fuel mileage dropped off. OL is a cetane booster and AR6200 is a combustion catalyst. I resumed OL.
Once I switched to Enerburn, I asked the same question and Jane Gates said there was no conflict but suggested I cut the OL dose in half. I actually use both at the full dose, because Enerburn is also a combustion catalyst, not a cetane booster.
I haven't found anything touting Enerburn as a lubricant so I would continue with the Opti-Lube. I would suggest that if you are using XPD that you either switch to Summer Plus or that you cut your XPD in half as it is expensive compared to Summer Plus. Obviously, Summer + doesn't have anti-gel which you don't need most of the time anyway.
