Hmm...posted 8 days ago, phone broke last Wednesday 6 days ago, ample time to get a new phone or use a friends, and still no pics uploaded. Something isn't adding up here, or am I a conspiracy junkie?
Did you get any Indigo Blue assuming you messaged him and whatnot?
I've had my NMS since early November and recently the outside temperature here in the lower desert have risen to the 90's, though \the last 2 days it's only been in the high 70s low 80s.
When it was hotter I did notice the regen cycling more. Off hand I'd say 50% more often.
Is this normal...
Maybe it's me but your Ford story is confusing....are you saying you ran Slick 50 back then and attribute that fact to the engine not blowing up? Which allowed you to add oil and filter after you discovered said blown oil filter, consequently dodging a bullet and drove it for another 50k???
