FleetDEF is FleetServ’s proprietary brand of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). It is a solution of urea and de-ionized water that, when injected into the exhaust stream (a process known as Selective Catalytic Reduction, or SCR), eliminates 90% of exhaust pollutants by converting them to nitrogen and water.
Yes. FleetDEF meets or exceeds all of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) requirements for use in SCR systems.
DEF consumption is measured as a ratio of diesel fuel consumption. In general, FleetDEF consumption will be between 2 and 3%. This means that if your vehicle has a fuel efficiency of six miles per gallon, it will use 1 to 1-1/2 gallons of FleetDEF every 300 miles.
The following chart will help you determine whether you should order the 55-gallon drum, 275-gallon tote or 330-gallon tote.
Vehicles that are equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems have a control unit that detects the DEF level. As the DEF level drops, warning lights are displayed on the vehicle’s control panel. If the DEF tank becomes empty, the vehicle’s horsepower will automatically be reduced. If the tank is not refilled soon after that point, the vehicle will be placed in “limp” mode.
No. FleetDEF is non-toxic. There is no need to wear protective clothing when filling the DEFtank, and any FleetDEF that accidentally spills onto your skin or clothing can be rinsed off with water or wiped away.
Your FleetDEF drum or tote should be stored out of direct sunlight in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.
