Thanks for the reply
It will only give you the "continue driving, cleaning exhaust filter" message after several failed attempts at doing a mobile regen. It's likely done 7 or 8 other regens during the 4,600 miles, but it's successfully completed them during driving so you don't know. When you take it in for the oil change, ask the dealer to check the GDS2 data and see how many regens it's had.

Scott1979 Most time I can tell a regen by looking at dic fuel being used,if low itís a gen.About 5 mpg less than normal is a good indication.
A small led dash light wired to 9th injector to come on when itís powered will let you know itís a gen.

My 2009 regens once per tankful of fuel, always.

I had an Edge Insight, now an Insight CTS2 - both tell me when it's in regen.

You may also be able to lightly smell something like plastic burning at stop lights or when idling. Also the exhaust is extremely hot coming out the tip.

Doverarjim When I bought my truck it had 37 miles on the odo and had the "Keep Driving" message on the dash, it only had 6.3 hours on it. About 30 miles down the road the message when away, it took Edge about 30 days to get the pid's working except for "oil pressure" still not there!!! And they changed the way soot is reported to percent from grams, which to me does not work as well. I have keep pretty good records on my truck so far and the miles between regens is all over the place depending up use of truck. With 11,000 miles on the truck I hooked the first trailer to it this afternoon so I'll know more about towing this time tomorrow.

No aftermarket dash monitor yet for me, considering the Banks setup in the future, hopefully you can monitor cycles with their idash unit. Would be nice to be able to do a manual regen before a service!

I've lost count of the horror storied posted about going in for the "free" oil change, and leaving with dents, bent mirrors, loose filters, loose drainplugs, wrong oil, wrong oil level, stained seats, loose lugnuts .... etc..etc...

The guy doing the "free servicing" is the lowest paid guy on the lot. You really want this guy touching your $60k truck?

If you cant change it yourself, for whatever reason... you need to make it real clear to the service manager BEFORE they touch your truck, that you want one of the line guys, to do it.

Epicenter Thank you, that's what I was wondering. I'm a first time diesel owner and still learning... LOVE the Truck, it's AWESOME!

Epicenter Yes youre correct, my bad on the read. I was at 50 miles on the ODO and it said "Keep Driving..." I assumed this is what it should do everytime a regen occurs but apparently that's not true. This is my first Diesel. Thanks for the replies!
