Just hammer on it once in a while. High EGT will keep your dpf from getting full.

especially on a long uphill run. EGTs can easily hit 1300°F on a hard pull.

It's like owning a car with a high performance engine - you need to open it up from time to time to burn out all the carbon. :evil laugh: Towing really does clean out the DPF.

The regen occurs at any speed. My wife had it occur in traffic. Took about 5-7 min to complete from 80% full.

Btw, she uses the car for kid school drop offs 1.6km (1mile) round trip. Her last car did 30,000 km in 5 years, the jeep is just over 1 yr old and just over 11,000km on it. 90% of those km in stop start conditions.

There is no need to be concerned about the DPF.

Re: DPF 80% full message for short trip or city drivers

Kinda the same for me... 2 miles to work each day... 7500 miles and no problems... But we are on a 2500 mile trip thru Maine and the east coast now, averaging 30 mpg. This is precisely why I bought it...we plan to take 2-3 trips a year that are 2000+ miles each and that is where I get my bang for the buck. So far it has been superb on the road, GPS has been spot on, even in coastal and big cities. No codes and has been performing great... Fuel has been the cheapest part of this trip!

Re: DPF 80% full message for short trip or city drivers

Just curious if any folks are seeing these messages often during their short trips as of late. Not sure if recent pcm updates are reducing these messages?

My daily drive back and forth from work is appx. 5 miles each way. Since I bought the Jeep last January, I have only ever seen one notice telling me the vehicle was in regen and to keep driving. I have never seen a warning telling me the dpf was getting full.

QFT. If your Jeep and mine don't bitch about needing regens when being constantly driven in these short-hop scenarios, then "normal drivers" can take a Valium about the DPF.

Sometimes these threads make it seem like these regen warnings pop up every 30 seconds the moment you touch the off-ramp of the highway.

Seriously, let's spin this question around: how many of us with NA EcoDiesels are seeing regen warnings regularly under *any* circumstances? Hell, even better: how many NA EcoDiesel owners have seen more than 2 such warnings over the lifetime of their vehicle?

Since I took possession of my diesel last June, I have never seen a regen warning. In that time I have driven ~6500 miles and have yet to add any DEF.

Re: DPF 80% full message for short trip or city drivers

Same here. Got it June 2014, almost 9000 miles in cold MN. often using remote start. Have never seen a regen message. One time just for kicks I had the present mileage screen on and saw the mileage drop by about 4 mpg for a short while and assumed it was in regen mode.

Re: DPF 80% full message for short trip or city drivers

Thanks for the updates - makes me feel better . Talked to a ram owner who had his over a year recently and mentioned he sees this pop up every so often. Perhaps he's running an older flash or something. Can imagine jeep has tweaked the regeneration cycles with updates.

Had that message, wouldn't regen, took it to the dealer, installed update, haven't seen that 80% message again.
