With our quality diesel exhaust fluid, you’ll be able to keep your Hickory truck within EPA emissions standards.
If you have recently purchased a 2010 or later model of a diesel truck, you should learn more about diesel exhaust fluid, commonly seen as DEF. This non-hazardous solution is used in the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system to break down dangerous emissions. Your vehicle has a separate tank for this fluid, which will be sprayed into the exhaust system at the rate of about one gallon every 200 miles. Adding diesel exhaust fluid to our line of products here at Bumgarner Oil is part of our commitment to providing the necessary fuel products to our customers in the Hickory, North Carolina area.
There are several reasons why you should take care not to run low on diesel exhaust fluid. For one thing, this system is in place to reduce emissions, which is important for the environment. On a more personal note, you can expect fuel savings because manufacturers were able to boost performance by using this method to control emissions outside of the engine itself. Finally, running out of diesel exhaust fluid will be much like running out of diesel in that your truck won’t operate. You will note warning lights if the diesel exhaust fluid tank is running low, and if it runs out, your vehicle will not go above 5 mph until you put more in the tank.
As with all our fuel products, you can count on the quality of our diesel exhaust fluid. We take care to make sure the ratio of urea to de-ionized water is on point, so you experience the performance you should and stay within the EPA’s emissions standards. If you have any questions about this important fuel product, don’t hesitate to contact us.
