    So my 1GD 2.8 is fairly consistently showing 11.5 - 12.0 with mostly city driving. Mind you I have a frontrunner platform rack, 265/70/17 KO2's, bar, winch, snorkel, dual batts etc.

    I have Never seen the DPF light come on in nearly 40,000kms. Should it be coming on? Should I be aware of it doing a burn, or is it hard to notice?

    Last week I entered the DPF accumulation code into my Scangauge and have been watching it constantly.. It goes up to 80, down to 40, up down up down.. The burn light never comes on. The revs never change. Ive never seen it go down to 6 or 8, and never up past high 80's.

    Could I have an issue?

      Could I have an issue? Possibly yours may be regenerating passively and if so cover it in glitter cause it's a unicorn!
