Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) FAQ

What is DEF?

Diesel Exhaust Fluid or “DEF” is an important part of keeping heavy-duty trucks and machinery operating within federal emission guidelines. Starting in 2010, changes in EPA standards required diesel-burning engines to reduce their pollution levels. DEF fluid can help accomplish this. 

What is DEF made of?

DEF is typically made of deionized water and urea. 

What does DEF do?

Using the combination of deionized water and urea DEF helps transform nitrous oxide emissions into water and gas.

How long does DEF last?

The shelf life of DEF is typically about one to two years when stored at a temperature of 75 degrees. In the field, a full DEF tank can last about 63,000 miles, but it can depend on your own driving habits.

What is DEF used for?

At its most basic level, DEF is used to help keep diesel emissions clean. Starting in 2010, EPA standards started to apply to diesel-burning engines as well. With its combination of deionized water and urea, DEF eliminates nitrous oxide emissions and turns them into water and gas. 

How to dispose of DEF?

If you spill DEF, isolate the spill in a non-combustible material such as sand. Avoid spilling the liquid in a drain. If you do so, rinse out rigorously. If DEF gets on your vehicle, you can wipe it with water.

Temperature Effect on Diesel Exhaust Fluid
Diesel exhaust fluid, or DEF, is a key component in the selective catalytic reduction, or SCR system for modern diesel engines. DEF breaks down harmful NOx (Nitrous Oxide) emissions that come from a diesel vehicle’s exhaust stream. It also helps keep vehicles’ emissions compliant. DEF is a non-toxic, non-hazardous, and... more

What Does DEF Do?
Back In 2010, the EPA began requiring diesel engines to reduce their production of NOx emissions (i.e. nitrogen oxides) in an effort to reduce air pollution.
