runaway parents Posted August 5, 2016 Report Share Posted August 5, 2016 So I understand the hole regen process on my 08 volvo780. I know it creates a lot of heat under the floor board on the passenger side of the truck.it burns the diesel particulates in the dpf filter. Turns it into ash and sends it out the tail pipe. Now the question I have is, When this ash leaves the tail pipe is it hot enough to start a brush fire or a forest fire for that mater. if the exhaust pipe is configured in the "weed burner" position.Currently my stack is still over the cab. Sometimes I take rig on logging roads. Are logging trucks required to have some sort of spark arrester equipment on there truck to run on forest service roads. Don't want to be presented with a bill to put out a fire. Any advice would be highly appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
