After a key-off, the regen counter resets by one.
We probably have a little different versions of engines because of where we live. Try the manual request in Carly. For me it never did anything. Always waited for min. 50g of soot.
30g for my car is sort of a mid level.
After regen finishes in my car, the counter immediatelly sets value to 0 or 1 - depends if it was completed to 0g or not. Key-off has no effect on this.
Just some interesting differences.
