Diesel exhaust fluid (commonly referred to as DEF) is a relatively new liquid that was created to help preserve the health of our environment by reducing the air pollution caused from diesels. If you are a diesel owner, but do not know too much about diesel exhaust fluid, this article is for you.
Back in the 1970s, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Clean Air Act. One of the focuses in the Clean Air Act was to reduce vehicle emissions. Because of this mandate, diesel exhaust fluid was created and has been helping to reduce diesel emissions ever since.
When diesel owners use diesel exhaust fluid, they pour the liquid into the exhaust stream. This then breaks down the harmful chemicals, but without limiting performance. Pretty cool, right? This liquid is made of 32.5% urea and 67.5% deionized water. Diesel exhaust fluid is non-toxic and relatively safe. The liquid is typically stored in stainless steel containers, and should be kept in a dry, cool, and well-ventilated location.
