Diesel exhaust fluid

Anybody ever hear of such,I went to NAPA to buy the additive for the coolant system and they brought out a gallon of Diesel exhaust fluid. They tell me people use it to cut down on exhaust emmisions.

It's used on Big trucks, Its liquid nitrogen based and goes thru a burner with the exhaust to get rid of emissions... Won't do your truck any good... DON'T put it in your fuel!!!!!!

It's used on the new trucks, it's used on the new 6.7 it's expensive and not worth it, it's mainly made of pee so if you had one and were stuck in the middle of nowhere you could pee in the tank it has and would be ok.

Dirty-max uses exhaust fluid as well. Don't think Cummins has made the switch yet...
It's designed to reduce NOx emissions I believe. From what I've heard, it works until the tank runs dry. Then there are some driveability and mpg issues.

Correct. All 2012+ diesel trucks have it, i'm not certain about cars though. Our 3/4 and 1 ton trucks at work including our box trucks use it. I don't know why Ford started using it before they had to, I guess to get ahead of the pack? Chevy wasn't very smart about it, the tank is under the passenger door and the filler tube is under the hood on the passenger side. It looks tacky hanging below the truck.
