I assumed that it was an 'economy' thing to leave something that hopefully passive regeneration would then deal with and so minimise the active regen burden?
Thanks for your reply. Reassuring that I'm not the only one to experience this. Hopefully it is 'normal' behavior, although it does seem a bit strange that the regen doesn't clear the dpf completely of soot.
