see that's good to know, I drive to work 35 miles one way and the majority of that is on the freeway going 65mph
I totally agree. I've purposely driven a longish, sustained, high-speed route and I can't get the soot gauge to drop more than a percentage point here and there. You'll certainly not see any action as quick as the active regen clears out the soot build-up.Passive regeneration on this Gen 3 engine only happens if DPF temperature is 650F or higher. From my experience, the only time I see temps go that high is if I'm on the interstate at 65 MPH or greater, or if I'm towing. It won't happen in town, and it won't happen on a typical 55 MPH highway.
There is an option from Banks. Its prettier but 3x the cost, IIRC. The Banks units can be daisy chained so you can run several of them to display even more information if you've got the desire.I used a TrailDash2 in the old JK. I am a fan of that style. I'm starting to look around and see what else is out there besides the ScanGauge. any sugestions?
I don't drive much with COVID and even less on the highway so I haven't had a lot of highway experience but the couple times I've been on the highway soot levels have been over 60% and I'd see it tick down 1% ever few miles. On a 30 mile run at 75 the soot level would drop ~10%.I totally agree. I've purposely driven a longish, sustained, high-speed route and I can't get the soot gauge to drop more than a percentage point here and there.

This FBC is the only one I've used. I know there are a few around though. One of the guys on Powerstroke.org was talking it up pretty good, so I tried it out. I would imagine they are all very similar.Roy, is there a particular brand/type of FBC that you recommend?
Bryan, with 16K miles, I suspect that you've had 10-20 regens by now. [maybe not if you drive exclusively on the highway]. My JLURD is only a month old and I've had 4 so far, but no messages have flashed on the dash. Most happen unobtrusively in the background. Even with a scan gauge, I've only noticed one actually in process.
User 2020 Diesel JL put three of them on the dash.
