I suspect most mechanics won't even know what you're talking about. Ask, and if they are evasive, politely move-on.

You will have to request the logs and it should not take an experienced technician more than a couple of minutes to print. After about 15 minutes of practice and familiarization on a dealer level simulator, I was able to print the history logs in about a minute and a half.

Retrieval of history logs is only possible by dealership or equivalent diagnostic gadgets.

Mercedes Benz is a whole different ball of wax. Inquire about what brand of diagnostic equipment they use and if they have an annual technical support subscription.

Do not take the vehicle to any place other than specializing in German vehicles!

You have been warned.

I was planning on bringing it to a Mercedes dealership service center.

Provided is a sample of a DPF history log (courtesy of esteemed forum member Avanti). Unfortunately, I can't provide an example of a ECU log.
Actually for a 2010 Sprinter it looks like the one below, since 2010 Sprinter is diagnosed in DAS and not Xentry.

Here is Xentry printout for an OM651...

You are welcome...

Here is the difference in regeneration histories of 2 2014 Sprinters OM651, one - 90% city driving and the second - 90% highway driving. Pressure difference vs Distance traveled...

City:

Highway:

I have read some people were wondering what the difference would be...
