Warning! Exhaust filter clogged.

So last night my wife was getting a can of gas for the lawn mower in my truck and when she got home she asked what's this warning that just came on in your dash. I checked and figured it was pretty obvious.
The warning said to check the manual and the manual said that to clear the filter i needed to drive on the highway at 90 km/hr for at least 45 mns.
The nearest highway to me is two ferry rides and 3.5 hrs away.
My commute to work is about 2-3 mns and i only have about 5 miles of road on my island so what was i to do.
I had to move some furniture today and get bait for fishing tomorrow and take s cpl things to my buddy's shop to get fixed so i let my truck warm up to temp and did my errands which took about sn hour from start to finish. I never turned the truck off and the total of 15 miles i drove i shifted into 2 nd gear and drove about 35 mph. When i startdd out i floored the truck and 2nd kept the rpms up a bit more than usual.
By the time i was done the warning was gone. Not ideal but it worked to clear the filter. For a while at least.

Sounds like you live in a interesting place & I'm surprised you went with a diesel . Your are going to have to eventually figure something out or do a full delete.

HAHAHAH awesome.

Your DPF is plugging up. Your truck just need to drive more quick start and stops is not ideal for newer diesels... or hook up to a trailer and drive you island loop a couple hundred times lol.

Delete your truck and you will never have that issue.

Unfortunately, its a common necessity to drive these trucks at speed every so often, more so if you do a lot of short trips, like you seem to do. Highway speeds are ideal, but it can be done at less; 60km/h or so should be enough to get it going into regeneration. Drive continuously for at least 20-30 minutes at that speed if you can. If its the island I'm thinking of, that might be tricky to do.

I plan on getting a tuner to turn off the exhaust filter when theres a bit more selection and a full delete when my warranty is up if i can wait that long.
I had to go diesel after going in my friends PR on a towing trip with him. I loved it and knew a gas wasnt in my future(hopefully not too many dealer trips for a plugged egr either).I knew what i might b in for and for me i guess it was more want than need at the time but my wife and i are looking at travel trailers so maybe diesel will wind up being less of a crazy choice.
I sure do love that diesel/tranny combo tho.

The island called White Head Island. Named from the white quartz thats exposed looking at it from the nw.
Its no problem to drive it 60 or a bit better for 30 mns or so. The scenery doesnt change much lol.

I am in the same boat as you, I bought for the future, and pulling a lot when the wife retires.
My diesel choice was completely wrong, for now, with a bunch of 2-4 mile trips, and not driving it often.
Next spring though, It will be the perfect choice.
The diesel will hold up better dragging a 30 foot RV trailer around.

just a thought .. I know nothing about the quality of your fuel but a high quality fuel additive may help your dpf issue ... I am certainly not going to recommend any brands but the good stuff costs more and may be worth a try... also on a island environment such as yours keep a close eye on your fuel water separator as h20 will tend to accumulate in your fuel tank and bulk tanks as I am sure you well know...I am glad to see the error cleared after your efforts to resolve... good luck ..xxx
