Post your readings along with your milage if you aren't deleted.
Based on my calcs, I should fill mine up around 340K (kms) at the current rate.
I'd be interested in seeing values from those who are over the 200K (miles) mark, or who are approaching it and are still rocking the original DPF, as that seems to be around when it should reach capacity based on the typical use I've seen.

Check MVB in VCDS
IDE00433 Particle filter: oil ash volume = .21
CNRB Mileage: 154289km-95870mi

I wouldn't stress about it until you're closer to that reading.... there's a lot of variables, and we are making a lot of assumptions by discussing things this "vaguely"..... milage\accural ratio is a very simplistic way of looking at it. There a big difference between someone that's doing hwy miles, vs someone that's doing grocery runs, vs someone that's towing, vs someone that's idling 30min daily to "warm it up", etc.

I was going to include my engine run time, but I wanted to keep it simple until we get some more people playing.

If your engine is running, soot is being produced. If you have continual regeneration (no idea what that is, but I'll guess you mean passive Regen) you are producing Ash. You need a new hobby. :cool:

Also, if it's taken 16 years to get to 60g, do you really think you'll keep this puppy running and maintained and driving for another 24 years? Because according to my math, that's the timeline you're stressing about with regards to filling up your DPFs. I'll leave the odo calculation to you, as you still have a loooooooooong way to go.

Doing the math on Engine Run vs Drive Time vs ODO reading.... it doesn't add up.
That run time can't be original as it's too low.... I'll have to dig some more to understand it.

I find it remarkable that other user's loads are similar as far as generation rates in ROW markets vs our NAR market with the "fix" updates..... lots of users claim that the FIX has significantly increased our loading rates and has diminished our DPF lifespan, but I'm not seeing the link just yet.... I think PM and driving habits are much more of a factor than the fix itself.

Snake oil.... you (or someone) must've reset your ECU's recorded ash load.
It's basically impossible that you're at 200k on a DPF and have that little ash.

Regeneration takes SOOT (aka diesel combustion byproduct) and burns it off. The result is ASH (technically, stuff that can't burn off\down any more).... so think of when you have a camp fire and when it's all done, you have a pile of ash... no matter how much you try to burn that down, there's no combustible stuff left, so it never goes away... you eventually have to dig out you firepit to clean it.

Based on your reported value (check with others with similar engine code and you'll see the massive discrepancy), your system was reset, your ECU was reset, your ECU was replaced, your DPF was replaced, or a combination of those.....

There's no way at that age/milage you have such little ash.

I just noticed that you can actually find average travelled distance between regens using VCDS. This can be useful if you monitor it over the lifetime of your ownership to see how your driving/use patterns and DPF lifespan impact it.
