If one can manage dpf levels with vcds and do a regen manually whenever soot goes over 28g(city drivers) this begs the question whether there is merit in frequent long trips just to ensure a regen is happening.
I mean which method is better to have lower ash levels overall- manual regen in city driving or automated ecu driven on a high speed run.
Btw, does anyone know what are the exact parameters when the ecu automatically will initiate a regen- what the soot, coolant temp, rpm, speed, etc levels have timo be?
