Don't know if very many people are aware of the environmental catastrophe known as diesel exhaust fluid(DEF).

CARB has had a role in emissions governance forever and played a role in getting OTR diesel trucks to where they are today in regards to emissions. They have an exhaust scrubbing system which is very costly to maintain and since around 2012 they have used DEF additive to make it burn cleaner or something.

The problem is DEF is a problem for the environment also and is being deposited all around the country via OTR trucks. Also, POV diesels use it as well, but I am not familiar with whether it is the same.

DEF is supposed to be urea water. You can't make this stuff up. I don't know what the chemical makeup of it is beyond urea,but when you get a drop of this stuff on something, it crystalizes into a pile of stuff that is almost bigger than the drop it started out as.

I have heard that you can't buy DEF in California anymore as they have determined that if is bad for the environment, but won't actually ban it because there will be a question of liability. Roadside vegetation is being reported as dying off due to this stuff.

My hope with sending this to you is to raise awareness to this problem and that of goverment using the environmental cause to wreak havoc in this country. Whether they knew what DEF would really do or not is a question that needs answered. They have cost the transportation industry tens of billions of dollars and driven many out of the business only to bring in new drivers or foreigners to fill the openings. Very safe. They have turned a very reliable, simple diesel engine into a complete mess.

I believe California should have to pay for a retro-fit of the DEF system on all trucks that have it. That could amount several billion dollars. Would be a good way to discourage dishonest govt. from peddling their garbage in the future. Hopefully this problem will be addressed before we find out it was much worse than just pee water.

I encourage people to go to your nearest truck stop and buy a jug of it to see what I am talking about. Hands on. You will have way more that you need, but you will also see how the trucking industry gets the shaft in everything, as that 2.5 gallons will cost from $15 to $20 inside. At the pump $3.

Sorry for rambling. There is just so much to this story and people not in the business don't see it. Also, this stuff crystalizes on the truck as well. Could be around $10K to replace the equipment on a repair.
