It would be interesting to find out how much diesel is injected into the engine during a regen. If it's triggered every 250 miles, then over 84 cycles between theoretical services, little wonder the oil is seeing dilution! Assuming the mean average of members on this forum reporting circa 12000 miles is throwing the oil service, thats still 48 post combustion injections of diesel.

I wonder just how much diesel a regen uses to burn the soot off.....if we could find that out, it wouldn't be difficult to calculate back just how much is going into the sump.
