I agree. Run the EB all the time. Although, a couple of the Hot Shotters said it was dangerous to do it in the rain and snow especially hauling a load. The OM states that the EB gets the EGTs up which is what the DPF needs. 1000 degrees or better. I run mine all the time and I'm not running 70mph for more than 15min.The rumor isn't true... Turn on your exhaust break and drive it to get the exhaust hot... Mine did that to me the other day and i was in the city I couldn't get over 40mph. but I turned my EB on and drove her to get hot.. and the cat full light went off and I got 80% then 70% then system ok... You just have to remeber that the regen doen't kick on until the dpf hits 1500 degrees... and it takes a max of 20 minutes for the regen cycle to burn through..

The EPA boys must have had a very different logical reasoning course than the rest of the world....but the goverment boys are never wrong are they? Guess I will still go along destroying the world by getting 24 mpg and not going on any "help the enviroment by driving no where for 45 miles at 13 mpg" road trips! The shame I feel!yes but you have to remember that the crappy fuel mileage and all the extra driving required to keep the system operating properly are very friendly to the environment. i thought we all knew that driving more and burning more fuel was better for the environment:confused013:
