I don't do a lot of highway driving so i would like to see when it is getting high. Also is there anything that can be installed to force a regen when it is getting high/ Thanks
    .
    Edge Insight monitors , CS2 , or CTS2 , both will do what you ask , and yes the 2016 are supported now.
    I am not associated to Edge , I just own one , that's how I know .
    but there are other ways to monitor , I'll let other members who use those other ways chime in .

    What a difference in regen time with and with out GDE. With the GDE it was running 750 to 850 miles. Well my tune was wiped clean when the dealers said he had to update the ECM and now we are have regen’s 75 to 80 miles. As soon as I get my CEL problem fixed i will get another tuned ECM.

    I've only seen the regen message once in 6,000 miles so far.

    That's a good thing. Probably regenratedd 20 to 60 times (assuming no GDE tune) so far and only once was not completed and triggered the EVIC notice.

    My ED (which I traded in for a new 2016 2500 Cummins last Monday) used to Regen every 80 miles on average. That was one DIRTY running engine. Now, the Cummins hasn't had a Regen yet, in almost 600 miles. I've monitored both with Torque Pro app, and can watch the DPF % AND Regens in real time.

    Regeneration of the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)

    So, I was towing my boat for the first time since I bought the truck, and when I got on the interstate...I noticed that my soot level on my CTS2 was dropping instead of rising. Pretty sweet to see the truck working like it was designed to do.

    I pulled my boat 160 miles today, and my soot level only went up 5% from where I started.

    Soot level started at 17% lowered to 12% heading out. Raised a little when I got off interstate.

    Soot up only 5% over 160 miles is not likely. At that rate, you would go 2560 miles to get to get to 80%. Normally, it should be around 300 miles to 80%.

    I was running it good. I had EGT3 temps between 950 and 1000 degrees. So I can only assume that it was burning the soot off like it was in a regen mode.

    The system will passive regenerate if the engine is under enough load to keep the EGTs around or above 1000°. I have seen this happen before also.
