Temperature of Regeneration




This is from the Ultra Gauge I just stuck in front of the dash. The CAT temperature went from about 600 degrees F to what you see for about 5 minutes or so. Never saw anything on the EVIC. Never noticed any change in fuel mileage or power but I was just going rather slow showing the area to some visitors.


Now you can really see why shutting off the EcoD while a regeneration is going on can give off a smell and heat.

Wow. I have 15,000kms on mine and never noticed a regen yet. I do about 40/60 highway/city.

Well guess what? It did another regeneration today in maybe little more than 100 miles from the last one.


Watched it start and then checked the clock. Thought I had a problem as it was 18 minutes long. Got me worried a bit watching it go close to 1300 degrees. Mostly the temperatures were in the mid 1100's to low 1200's. Then it finally dropped down to the normal 500 degrees +/-.


Was told there are many. Now I'm getting a hint of how many there might be. Nothing shows on the EVIC. Watched and watched the fuel consumption but made no conclusion. No change in power and believe me, I stomped it once just to check.


This gauge is an "eye opener".

10%.....how many miles are on your truck? I know mines done it b/c of the hot smell I've noticed a couple times that I've gotten out of the truck while it was running. Also I've felt the heat coming from the tail pipe on 2 occasions. ....it was pushing some heat!!

Anyway I have 6700 miles and have never seen an evic display saying anything about a regen.

I'd like an edge cts monitor, but after looking at what you have the price is pretty appealing. The edge with the pillar mount is 450 ish. I really like the clean look of the edge cts with the pillar mount but ouch....360 bucks I could spend on something else!! That ultra gauge have soot percentage for the dpf? How many egt locations does it detect (I believe our trucks have 4 sensors) i see it has egt and boost.

10% that looks like a great guage. Where do you think you will mount it for best viewing?
Thanks for all your good info!

Questions and answers...


The Ultra-Gauge.com site has a link to the on-line manual. Mine is the "upgraded " model and costs about $8 more than that $69 one. It also has a different manual on-line. In that manual it specifically talks sbout the particulate filter monitor on page 56.


I am stupid busy entertaining guests from up north. Did not even run the truck today. Have not touched the unit to see what it might do.


Mounting might be right where it is. From a driving position all it blocks is numbers on the speedo above 110. You get a full view of the fuel gauge and it sits there nicely.





Truck has 18,000 miles on it. This second regeneration you see here was less than a 100 miles after the first one. I have been told this truck will do one every couple hundred miles. Unlike the first two I watched on the EVIC, there has never been another show up there. Might be this truck has had over a 100 regenerations that I did not know about.


Note the turbo boost as I acceerated just a little for this picture. You can also read horsepower and torque here. I was trying to hasten this regeneration with no luck. It took a full 18 minutes and actually got me worried something might be wrong.


It dropped back to appx. 500 degrees after this regen.


Appreciate the thanks. I know little about this thing and bought it because it will read and clear codes. The inexpensive price was a good thing and my take on construction is Garmine-like.

Just asked the dealer if I added the Ultra Gauge or the Edge Insight CT or CTS would that void my warranty. They told me any after market equipment added to truck would void the warranty. I explained these units are not programming units, rather they are monitoring units to help us detect upcoming regen cycles. They still wouldn't budge. I'm going to get one anyway and be very careful if you know what I mean.
