DPF Emissions Issues

The first day driving on I-81 was stressful but smooth.  I managed going up and down the hills with good speed and without any hitches.  The second day in Southwest VA and Tenn was just the opposite. I couldn’t sustain enough HP to make it up any hill without chugging along like an overloaded RV.  Something was up, and it wasn’t just the excess weight of the Amazon bestsellers bogging me down.

If you don’t start the hills with a full tank of fuel, you can easily run low before things level out. That’s because hauling a heavy load up treacherous Tenn hills can consume more fuel than you can ever imagine.

Heck I might even have to drive through the night – all the truck stops were filled to the rim. Then near Bristol, out of nowhere, an LED sign for Walmart towered over the freeway – a welcomed respite for the night.
