Initial DPF Equiped Trucks

Winter is now upon us and the operation of trucks with a DPF is now real world. This winter and the use of ULSD will determine the fate of fleets that bought DPF equiped trucks and did not provide proper training in the operation of these units. Recent calls and visits to servicing dealers offered a little insight into what problems to expect. Very few hardware problems were reported, most problems were related to lack of understanding of the lights on the dash and the possible effects of excessive idling.
