Manufacturers have had to reconfigure their exhaust systems to meet new regulations on the emission levels of nitrogen oxides as they have become stricter over the years.

What makes Diesel Exhaust Fluid?
Synthetically produced urea and demineralised water are the main raw ingredients in Diesel Exhaust Fluid. This provides a clean and pure product. Synthetically produced urea is used in many day to day products such as cosmetics and moisturising creams. Download the Diesel Exhaust Fluid specification here.
How is Diesel Exhaust Fluid Used?
Diesel Exhaust Fluid is usually replenished during your service, but sometimes your Diesel Exhaust Fluid warning light will indicate that you need to refill beforehand. Running dry of Diesel Exhaust Fluid may cause your vehicle to operate in crawler mode (go slow). Refilling is easy, use clean Diesel Exhaust Fluid apparatus (ie don’t use oil or diesel funnels), take off the filler cap, pour until full. For smaller vehicles the tank cap is usually in the boot, under the carpet. Wipe up any spills as it can corrode some metals/paintwork. Read more on how to handle and store Diesel Exhaust Fluid.
Diesel Exhaust Fluid is ideally purchased from your Car/RV/Pickup truck dealership. However, it is also available at Truck stops, truck dealerships and Oil distributors who supply the truck industry. They may have Diesel Exhaust Fluid containers or pumps that passenger vehicles can use, but please investigate on arrival.
