The aftermarket promises a kit to make DPFs serviceable, but....

Seeing as how the sensors are in the exhaust stream, I believe that you need someone versed on a Tech II or equivalent to monitor real time inputs from the sensors. It would not be far-fetched to believe that one or more of the soot covered, high heat exposed, sensors is sending incorrect data.

Mine has been doing regens about the same 400-500 miles. I just added 21/2 gallons of DEF at 11981 miles and it was filled last at 8250 miles that's about 1500 mpg. I've been really busy the last 6 months so of the 3800 miles or so on that fill up have been driving around town and short trips.

OP: Read the other 70 pages

To the OP: I started the other thread you are referring to, and every single possible scenario was covered. The bottom line is that a reflash by GM to address an underperforming emissions systems likely was the cause of the reduced regen intervals. I went from 500+ mile intervals, all the way down to 200 overnight. No change in driving habits, weather, DEF fluid, brand of fuel, atmospheric pressure, wind direction, moon phase, etc. It was 100% due to the mandatory reflash. Until GM removes that shitty emissions systems and comes up with a better solution, I am done with diesels.

If it is caused by this reflash then why is my truck along with many others still getting and average of 550 mile regens? It is a sensor issue plan and simple.

I get 450-500 going back and forth to work and 650-700 on road trips.

I had the reflash last year. My latest regen was at 700 miles. Previous one was 500 with a lot of stop and go.

Now I'm down to 300 miles between regens.
Is there a TSB number for that reflash?

I had a reflash done at the end of july for a poor quality exhaust fuild message and my regens went from about once every tank full of fuel to about every 200 to 250 miles. Now today started a new regen with only 115 mile since the last one. I will be calling the dealer tomorrow

Before I deleted my regens on a straigh highway drive were easily over 600 miles most people dont drive straight highway and long range when they complain about regens coming early.

Bottom line you arent gonna see 600 miles between regens when you do city driving stop and go driving or much idling.
