Diesel Exhaust Fluid is used in relatively new Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to meet diesel emissions standards. Many 2011 and newer diesel vehicles use Diesel Exhaust Fluid, which is a urea solution carried in an onboard reservoir and injected into the exhaust stream by a metering system to reduce harmful nitrogen oxide emissions.
What does Diesel Exhaust Fluid do?
Diesel Exhaust Fluid is a non-hazardous solution that is 32.5% urea and 67.5% de-ionized water. Diesel Exhaust Fluid is sprayed into the exhaust stream of diesel vehicles to reduce harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by breaking the emissions into nitrogen and water.
How do I use Diesel Exhaust Fluid?
If equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology, your diesel car or truck will have an onboard reservoir that contains Diesel Exhaust Fluid. When the fluid in your vehicle is low, visit your local Oil Can Henry’s to have more added.
