Default Regen interval

Over the last few months I have been keeping a note of when my 2.0 hdi has been doing a regen, and sure enough every 370 miles it did, until this time it now done 450 miles without one. The only difference is within this cycle I did a 200 mile airport run and also an abs fault appeared.
I have been researching the regen intervals but have had conflicting info. Does anyone have any knowledge on this? And wether a continuous abs fault would affect regens, befor I get it put on planet.
Thanks Steve.

If you've experienced a longer period between regens, especially after a longer run out, that suggest to me that the car is being driven correctly (ie. motorways) and the system is working correctly.

ABS shouldn't be affecting regens, unless it's affecting your speedo readout. Cooling system and glowplugs will affect regens, so that may be worth looking into if you've got any concerns

My 407 hardly ever regens as 95% of my travelling is on the motorway, so assume that the burn off is done naturally by high gas temps in the exhaust due to high motorway RPM, not by forced regen.

Regens are variable but if you do a lot of motorway runs as above it wont need a regen it will keep itself clean naturally regen average on a poorly used vehicle about 200 miles to 300 miles.

Acar that sees regular proper use may only regen every 5-600 miles it really is down to driving style more than anything else.

ABS fault would not stop it

The load of soot in the filter is calculated by the computer (the differential pressure sensor is only used to detect puncture) and the driving style and type of journey causes the computer to count up at different rates.

Cheers all for the info, feel abit more at ease now that the car could be doing something right rather than going wrong. Just abs sensor to sort must be a front one cos sat nav still works, when the rear one goes the satnav goes nuts, been 7 months without the double bong on startup, that's a record for this car.

How do you know the car is doing a regen other than just noticing the "signs" rwb says?

I have driven for 2500 miles and haven't noticed anything?

On mine the door mirrors get hot and if you go to the back of the car exhaust fumes smell like burning bitumen��. Also mine judders on deceleration and sometimes missed on initial acceleration but I think that's just mine looked into it and I possibly have a leak on a pressure sensor, other than that put it on planet I think it tells you on there, but not being a planet owner maybe someone who is can enlighten you more.

I've had 407's for 11 years and can only say I've only 'spotted' one definitely
