The ECM warning light on the panel comes on. I don't notice any performance difference. Connect the code reader and delete.Stays off for 20 or more miles. I did not run out of diesel. Had owned it a year and put 4 thousand miles on it before the first time. Just prior to the first time i had gone down a more than usual incline to a dry creek crossing(dry).
