Well it’s happened, for sure. You’ll notice when your fuel mileage goes to crap, and you may smell your exhaust system getting extra hot.

I am still a bit surprised myself but I am using Better Diesel FBC additive and convinced it is making a significant difference in my regeneration frequency and duration. I am driving about 2/3 highway miles and 1/3 city miles. On the last tank I drove 410 miles since the prior regeneration but the regeneration only lasted 12 miles of highway miles. Prior to that I had driven 793 miles between regeneration's and it took 13 miles to clear. On that tank I did have about 230 miles pulling a trailer so perhaps that impacted that tank experience. I do not have a lot of experience yet with this truck but prior to using the FBC I was have a regeneration about every 350 miles and often lasting up to 25 miles.

One of my co-workers is using it in a diesel Canyon and he is reporting similar reductions in the duration and frequency of regenerations.
