Our diesel exhaust fluid is high quality to meet EPA emissions standards.
In an ongoing effort to control emissions, diesel trucks were first outfitted in 2010 with a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system that breaks down dangerous emissions from the exhaust system. For this system to function, diesel exhaust fluid is sprayed into the exhaust system while you are driving down the road. A separate tank holds this fluid, and you need to fill it just as you do the diesel tank and other fluids. Here at Bumgarner Oil, we carry this important fluid for your diesel truck, so you can get both the fuel you need and your diesel exhaust fluid at one location.
The typical use rate is one gallon of diesel exhaust fluid per 200 miles, but you do not have to calculate that out for yourself, as a warning light will illuminate when it is time to refill the tank. Of course, it isn’t a bad idea to top it off when you refuel so you don’t run the risk of running out at an inopportune time. Your diesel truck will not operate without it any more than it would without diesel fuel. The difference is that you can still move forward instead of being stuck on the side of the road, but unfortunately, you won’t be able to exceed 5 mph until you refill the tank with more diesel exhaust fluid.
You already know you can depend on us to provide quality diesel fuel. It is no different with our diesel exhaust fluid. We take care that it performs as it should and meets EPA emissions standards by having the correct ratio of urea to de-ionized water.
