On my way to work the regen message came up saying I was at 80% by the time I got to work I was down to 50%. When I get off work should I go for a long drive. Hopefully shutting off the truck in a middle of a regen is ok.

It's not the best practice to shut it down during a regeneration but shouldn't hurt it. My feelings about the whole thing is I just try and limit it's cycles by watching my CS2 and let the truck complete it's process. I figure the components have a certain lifespan, and if I can eliminate partial burns then I'm ahead of the game.

As far as you going on a long drive after work, unless you have a monitor to force a regeneration, you won't get into another until you reach the 66%+/- threshold...

I've had that same thought process. But, thinking more and more about it I feel like after warranty it's going to be cheaper to let the DPF "fall off" and buy the necessary tuner then to replace the factory emissions system. I know on the bigger disesls that system is upwards of $3000 dollars. I'm not sure what the cost is on a EcoDiesel yet.

But back on topic.. I probably wouldn't worry about the current state (50%) unless you don't plan on ANY highway driving anytime soon..

Exactly. I'll play nice and keep it all intact until it's going to be a huge expense. At that time it probably won't be my everyday driver anyhow so I'll feel less guilty deleting the emission equipment.

I live in southern Or and vehicles have to pass DEQ- visual and emission testing, so removing emission stuff isn't an option until vehicle is 21 yrs old.

Yea, best to treat the regeneration process as well as you can then.
