Stopping and shut down during regen

Is it bad or "frowned upon" to stop the truck and/or shut it down if it's doing a regen? Say getting home or parking in garage?

I don't like doing it. Rather complete the cycle. Came into US customs one time, from canada. -20 out. Shut truck off while in regen at the booth. That DPF is just a crackling away.

I here its filled with a ceramic honey comb.

And what happens when you expose hot glass to the cold?

it won't matter. the truck will just pick up where it left off...it will take longer of course to complete, but it's going to happen with mostly city driving anyways. highway is best for the regens.

Dspends on its mood... 99% of the time, no problems... But once, mine didn't pick it up and ended up needing a service regen, because it couldn't restart the process. I'd recommend against it, just in case.

I've noticed with mine, if interrupted more than twice it doesn't take the soot level down as far. This results in the next regen coming sooner and therefore overall average MPG being less. When this happens , I've seen it give up around 14 grams. Not a big deal. May not even be an accurate measurement, but that's what I've seen.

Definitely better to complete the cycle once it starts whenever practical. Interruptions waste time/energy trying to bring the exhaust system back up to temp.

It went at least two weeks without a regen... I would shut it down and restart it at every stop light, just so I could get up to speed before it derated me, lol
