The Facts about Diesel Exhaust Fluid

In an effort to reduce emissions and promote healthier air quality, DEF is recommended for all diesel vehicles. DEF, or diesel exhaust fluid, is a non-toxic solution made up of urea and de-ionized water. When combined with the exhaust stream from a diesel vehicle, it breaks down emissions, transforming them into nitrogen and water. Without this valuable solution, the emissions produced by vehicles would increasingly compound, putting the atmosphere, and human life, at risk.

DEF was introduced as a marketable product in 2010. After the EPA standards were revised to reduce harmful pollutants, DEF was used as a way to reduce pollution while still promoting vehicle efficiency. While most car manufacturers have made adjustments to their engines in an effort to reduce diesel emissions, DEF can still help.
Most diesel-powered vehicles can benefit from DEF. If your vehicle was manufactured after 2014, there’s a good chance that it requires DEF in order to function properly. Trucks, industrial trucks, vans, and certain luxury cars should all be maintained with DEF to ensure efficiency.

Now, most diesel vehicles have a dedicated storage tank to hold DEF. Typically located next to the fuel tank; the nozzle for DEF is much smaller than the fuel tank, making it difficult to mix the two up. Simply refill the tank as needed to reduce your emissions and keep your engine running smoothly.

Many assume that DEF is a toxic substance that can cause major health issues when handled incorrectly. In all actuality, DEF is completely non-toxic, non-flammable, and non-hazardous. It’s safe for transport and poses no risk if it comes in contact with skin. While it may not be toxic, it’s extremely important to prevent contamination. Even a single teaspoon of salt could destroy the purity of 5,000 gallons of DEF. Take necessary measures to store and refill your DEF properly.
