Two years, and lots of fuel and DEF later, I still don't know if my 3500 has ever performed a regen.

If it has, it managed to go by completely unnoticed by me. Wonder if I'll be able to sleep tonight, not knowing?
Mine clearly tried to go into regen at idle after I remote started it this morning. I wonder if I'll be able to sleep tonight knowing I interrupted the regen once I got to work? No, I don't wonder, I'll sleep just fine...

I won’t sleep either...in solidarity. 6 mos and 7k miles Gabe me thinking the same. No regen to my knowledge.

Other than when it regens in traffic or is in the middle of one when I shut down (smell and ting-tinging), the only way I've ever known was by watching EGTs. I've never really seen the MPG drop; it varies a lot during driving anyway. It is a good thing that it regens without any fanfare. That's how it is supposed to be.

I still won't be able to sleep. If for no other reason, because I can't let esminbritt down.

In the same boat as Jimmy N. In my two years with my 2500 I have no idea. Most of my driving is highway and towing heavy so I suspect the regens might not be necessary for me.

And I sleep great at night too.

Guarantee you, it has done a number of regens in 7K miles, you just haven't been aware of them.

I run so many highway miles, half of which are towing heavy, that mine does quite a bit of passive regeneration, but I do notice the active regens from time to time, usually at times when I'm sitting still and notice the smell.

So, y'all are silly to let it keep you from sleeping at night, there are lots better things to lose sleep over.

Im at 4500 miles in my 2018 G56 and I was wondering the same thing. So there is no way to really tell it’s doing a regen? My tail pipe looks brand new so I assume it’s running pretty clean.

Dude, I'm so jealous of your G56. No joke here. You got the last one ever. Well, last year...

I'm mostly worried about Brexit.

Isnt a light supposed to come on? I have the DPF % guage on all the time now. I watch it vigilantly, waiting to see a single %. Just 1% and I'll bee happy. I feel like I'm being left out of the whole regen party.

Have no real idea what the 2019's do, earlier trucks have no indicator of normal regen cycles, if the DPF gets close to 100% there will be a message pop on the EVIC, but that's not the norm.

Thanks man. That’s why I got it.
It’s a really basic tradesman. But it’s definitely the nicest thing I have ever owned. Hopefully I won’t have to buy/look for another truck for 15 years or so....
