- sure you can piggyback off this thread...
Couple things regarding your comments:
- Very hard to run out of DEF without knowing
a.) DEF % Full indicator is available in IPC (Instrument Panel Cluster)
b.) Amber alerts You need to OK out of in IPC when you start getting close to empty
- DPF % Full is not exposed by Ford (probably because of owners like me over-analyzing things)
a.) DPF % Full can be exposed via FORScan programming (we have How-To instructions)
b.) Many owners don't expose DPF % Full or worry about it effects,
but then ask why they aren't getting the marketed 10K oil change intervals
- The "Stuck in regen" thread is a misleading title for the thread, but we learned a lot:
a.) Regens forced at 300 mile limit
b.) Active Regens only initiate at 100% Full and EGTs above 578F
c.) Active Regens won't stop if you stop at a red light
d.) Active Regens will stop if you put the truck in Park
e.) Distance between Regens & BioDiesel are biggest contributors to oil life
- Most important question I ask to perspective buyers is: What is your driving style?
a.) Around town/City driving? (Lots of stop-and-go short trips)
b.) Highway driving?
c.) Light towing?
If you answer a.) to #4, then I would say you want to read some of threads above, just so you know what you might be getting into. If you answer b.) or c.) to #4, then an F150 PSD is a good candidate for you, as these trucks are really designed for being driven, especially on the highway.
I am by no means trying to scare perspective owners away from this platform, but I do feel responsible for warning perspective owners (especially those new to diesel ownership) of some things we have learned so that they can make an educated buying decision.
Feel free to post back with your driving style and any questions you might have.
