Unless big changes are made the current design of DPF is pretty bad for fuel economy.
Modern diesels don't make much smoke unless someone puts in a retard program to purposely make lots of black smoke.

Yeah, lets start with getting the morons who roll coal, or drive around with a failed turbo off the road.

When a dpf does a regen it actually pumps out all the soot/carbon that has built up. So the law is law but in this case is seems so wrong. Dumps in one go instead of being spread out in time.

It uses fuel to burn the captured diesel soot, then it does produce soot that is 1 to 2 micron which is most hazardous.
My old diesel, what soot it makes is big 100 to 150 micro. You can see it and smell it and that's a good thing, our bodies can stop almost all of that before it gets into our lungs.
The problem with the 1 to 2 micron size, that's the size chemical weapons manufacturers are going for, so it gets inhaled deeply into the target's lungs.

AFAIK some truckers are running a bypass system that re-routes part of their exhaust flow to a straight pipe while a smaller amount goes through its aftertreatment system, but that's mostly for the sound of a straight-pipe. I'm sure any attempt to "roll coal" would not be worth the risk of ruining the DPF and the SCR core.
