The first line of the OP's post clearly spells it out.

Beyond that, if the subject doesn't seem relevant to you, I guess it's a chance to learn something new.

Me, I found this helpful as I'm planning to replace my TV in a year or two and deciding if a diesel truck is realistic.

Best regards,
Chris

The only way I know my Chevy is in regen is by the slightly higher idle RPM, and usually a small white puff of smoke when accelerating from a stop sometimes. My Ford had an indicator that would pop up on the dash for a second, but nothing like that in the Chevy.

Ditto for my 2009 Duramax

There's a slightly different sound at idle as well, and a "hot" smell when I get out of truck if it's in regen when I park it.

During driving, there's a reduction in fuel MPG on the DIC.

I also have an Edge Insight CTS2, which will show when regen is happening.

The truck consistently regens once during every tank of fuel.

my 08 f350 which was pre def i could tell when it was in regen right up to the day that the dpf fell off.

my 2011 and 2016 fords, aside from a message flashing on the screen for a few seconds, you would never know it is doing anything,
