Urea Costs??

Anyone had to purchase any Urea for their rig yet? Wondering what the costs and availability are going to be.

Well i dont have to buy any since i drive a 97 model but i have seen the Diesel Exhaust fluid at flying j and from what remember it wasnt to awful expensive. The only reason i know this is because i was looking for fuel additive and the term "Exhaust Fluid" Really caught my eye...i thought it was a joke.

I've read that Flying J is installing filling stations with an estimated cost of $3.60/gallon.

One MB owner reports he gets fluid at the VW dealer for $12.50 for a 2.5 gallon jug which is about equal to the flying J estimate if you subtract cost for the jug. Can't imagine Ford would charge more than VW.

Thanks for the info. I had checked Flying J's web site but did not see anything about that product at all.

Just trying to get an idea of an additional cost of a product that neither of my current rigs require. Be interesting to see how much of that stuff is used per thousand miles of traveling in a new 6.7L rig.

Thanks

Dick

It stands for urea. It is carbamide, used as a fertilizer, which synthesizes into carbon dioxide and ammonia, which in turn is synthesized into nitrogen.

For our use in the diesel exhaust, the ammonia reacts with NOx to synthesize that into nitrogen and oxygen.

It's a special bottle (seriously)...it's got a flexible spout and a shut-off valve to avoid overfilling and spilling...

I will be buying it soon.....1950 miles and my truck is claiming the DEF tank is below 1/2 full (according to system check on the LCD info screen).

So much for 7500 miles between fill ups. Maybe the tank was not topped off when I took delivery...who knows.

Either way- It is worth it. I just towed my 5er again yesterday 150 miles that included some 3% grades. Man this thing has some power compared to my old 6.0 liter!

Jason. You should be getting a coupon for another free DEF fill up.

how necessary is that stuff? The truck should run just fine without it right? I'm of course talking about a model designed for off road or farm use and would not be taken onto legal roadways.
