Could you pee in the tank to get enough solution to get home? I'm only partly kidding...

I wondered the same thing myself! grin But there are sensors to check urea concentration that ensure the content of the tank is truly DEF.

I'm thinking someone ought to invent a filter that would separate the water and urea out.

I've also been wondering about the same thing. Is there some kind of special diet one could go on to make himself a urea dispenser? Imagine the earnings possibilities for just doing something that comes naturally. I think we may have a solution to the unemployment problem.

Mazda avoided using urea injection because they created a diesel with 14:1 compression. That kept peak combustion chamber temperatures down, avoiding the higher temperatures that create NOx.

In theory so far. Mazda has delayed the introduction of their Diesel to North America. I think the problem is certification.

Yes, I have heard rumors that the engine has bad fuel dilution due to frequent DPF regeneration, and that it takes a while to warm up, which raises cold weather emissions.

My vehicle gives a warning of "999 miles until no start". IMO if you can't fill with that mileage you have no business driving.

Now, if they could just do away with the EGR, things might be more tolerable.


Urea injection is better in every way compared to the heavy egr thats needed to control nox.
Ok, it has one drawback...you have to fill at a rate of 1-3% but the tanks are generally big so its usually every third tank or so.
The def tech saves you about 3 bucks of diesel for every buck that you buy def fluid for by simply
allowing the engine to run at higher efficency, egr lowers the engines efficency..

Despite my disgust for the politics that brought this about, it will make factory water injection more likely in the future. It also creates new tanks for people that owned the vehicle before the EPA vomitted on it to use for water/methanol kits, referring to Duramaxes in particular.

The regen thing I get, the warm up??? Other than some higher thermal efficiency, I dont see a substantial difference to warm up a diesel than a ga$$er, because if the same alloys, lube types, etc. are used, and the same power is output, its a matter of mass and heat capacity.

The diesel is more efficient, but the few % dont make a big difference given the quantity of waste heat. The engines are heavier, but that heat capacity difference can be calculated, and if normalized, wouldnt be any longer. Practically speaking it may not be any different.

Diesels are infact so effective at idle that they generally cant keep hot..

Why not kick all of this EPA garbage to the curb and go back to reliable, simple diesels?

Oh, wait, then Al Gore wouldn't be a multi billionaire ...

Maybe we should all just go back to walking everywhere. It was much simpler and more reliable.

The concepts around EGR and SCR are sound.
