DPF active regen

Was wondering how often folks are seeing active dpf regens. I have 6k miles on my 18 and saw my first regen at about 3k and am seeing active regens about every 1200 miles since. Using stanadyne performance as I have on my other oil burners (non dpf) CTS II monitor indicates regens and monitors all othe vitals I care to watch.

Right now I'm at about 900 miles between regens. (2016 with 37k on the truck)

That's roundabout where I am. I've noticed it gets shorter as time/miles goes.

Thats about the average from what i have seen on the 6.7's. Just be glad you dont have an 3.0 Ecodiesel, Ive seen regens as low as 40 miles on stock programming, normally 75-300.

I've never seen an 'active regen'.

I get the funny smell every now and then when I get out of the truck, which I assume is a regen I interrupted.

I just bought some opti-lube Summer Formula that treats 640 gallons per quart. Price is right.

I understand that winter operation is a lot different, however.



I saw a test somewhere that said opti-lube was top notch and costs about a tenth of what the boutique brands cost.

Most of the long-term Cummins guys in here aren't all that wild about additives, I've noticed. And I don't plan on using a lot of it.

^I'm big on additives - and even bigger on the HFRR score test, which Opti-Lube actually has independent data for - figure about $1-2 a tank is worth more to me to treat the fuel and for the peace of mind - I'll put my flame suit on before all the haters come in "DERR ALL I PUT IS DEEZUL IN MY TANK I HAVE 500K MILES ITS SNAKE OIL"

Use what you like, and use it often - for your Florida climate, the Summer+ should be all you need, it gets a good HFRR wear rating. I personally use a combo of their XL Lubricant, with Hot Shot Secret EDT - With our mild winters I haven't used any anti-gel yet especially since our vehicles are garage kept -

If you don't need the anti-gel, the Summer formula is the best value by far - enjoy! I notice my engines running quieter, smoother, cleaner, and I don't complain about the mileage either -

There are documented cases and testimonials by mechanics that over-use of additives can actually do some pretty serious harm to your diesel.

Just passing it along

I appreciate you passing it along - I don't overdose and always follow the additive manufacturers directions (some of these are serious chemicals and should only be used in dose rates per directions) - Must use common sense IE dont use Power Service 911 when you don't need it - and don't run a full bottle of Cetane booster when 4 oz will do - Have been using a good diesel additive on 3 diesel vehicles now (most recent my 6.7L) and used properly none of my vehicles have any negative effects -

Many variables. None when towing. As often as every 75 miles under some city driving conditions. Monitor your DPF pressure. If regen about .05 psi, it's normal. Don't use additives as per manual.

Watch this video.. Interesting. I am going to try the double dose of the Hot Shot Secret EDT. I presently use Diesel Kleen and am satisfied with this. However, as my vehicle gets older and more mile it seems like the Hot Shot has an advantage. Oh by the way. The Diesel Kleen really has smoothed out the Cummins. I use the double dose as per the directions bringing my CETANE up to 46 from 40. Cummins recommends the Diesel Kleen.
