Can we talk a hypothetical here?
How long would it take for low sulfur diesel to foul the particulate filter? One tank, 3 tanks or one gallon?

Well there are no fowls in the filter:laughing: The unit self generates and cleans itself
there may be times around every two thousand miles when at a traffic light , on idle it may do it's thing and start to regenerate, some folks freak out over this, so be warned.

Apparently when the it burns itself clean it gets so hot that at night you can see the exhaust pipe glow!!!
Must be an awesome sight.

Great animation AS! I'm a big fan of the Powerstroke engine and you should see their burn off. BTW, does anyone know how long the actual burn lasts?

long enough at the traffic light stop. to burn the hairs off the local cop! who tried to book you for polluting the atmosphere:laughing: it varies from one two three minutes,depends on local conditions, mine up North has had three recorded burnoffs since 2006 it scares the heck out of the drivers as to the racket it makes.
