There’s a time and place for everything. If I operated my truck in an urban environment I’d consider keeping it soot free, but the 36 ricks of firewood I burn a winter probably add more soot than my deleted truck - but at least burning wood is CO neutral.
Sp you are ok adding one more thing to pollute the air. You cant say because of how electricity is produced or how DEF is produced causes more pollution makes no sense. Thats like saying eating stake causes more methane. How many people on this site have removed the pollution equipment from there truck just on this site. Now just add your name to the list. I like not having a black spot on the back of my truck. I like that I don't smell diesel exhaust.

And taking the membership of one forum is 5,000 for the 6.7 or even 10,000 members, that would be a mere drop in the bucket compared to the millions of vehicles with the 6.7 installed and most with no problems being reported.
And not too many people come to a forum to report all is well either.

Why would they come to report all is good? If they are not having a problem, then why would they clutter up the forums with "No Problem" reports? Or even get on a forum?

That was my point - except that a bunch of us became friends and we come here to keep up with each other.... and have get togethers - talk about how we enjoy using our vehicles.

When I got my first diesel it was a 6.0 and that never happened because we were busy driving rental cars while our truck was at the dealer getting fixed.

Logic says if you get better fuel mileage you burn less fuel therefore you are reducing the impact at the front end of production. Also logic dictates that I won't be filling landfills with plastic DEF containers.
