diesel exhaust additive

So i was at the stealership today getting parts for my 7.3 and saw some exhaust additive so i asked what it was for and the parts guys said it was for the new 2011 superduty. It was a 5 gallon jug and he said it cost something like 160 bucks and you have to put it in at every oil change and you also have a tank next to the fuel tank that you have to keep full or it will go into idle mode.that sounds like it'll be a pain in the a$$

or,,, tune the truck and turn that crap off . I would love to get a 6.7, and plan on it once the prices come down a little bit but i will def. have it tuned to remove that along with the rest of the emissions stuff.

You call it the "stealership" and yet give credence to what the parts guy said?

2.5 gallons for $11.99, I have paid less locally and cannot see it costing more than $20 to put 5 gallons of DEF in: DEF | NAPA Online

My understanding is that most major truck stops have or will have DEF dispensers and the cost will be very reasonable. Still not sure that I like the idea of one fluid shuttting down my truck though. Sounds like a good way to shut down the economy if that's what some bad person/group wanted to do...

You mean one MORE fluid shutting your truck down. Can't run out of fuel, oil or coolant either.

I read on the napa site that it boils at 212 F and crystalizes at 12 degrees F. I wonder if they will make a winter and a summer blend?

Me and my uncle had a discussion tonight and he said the technical reports he had read on the urea there is no way it could tell the difference between your pee and the urea they going to sell you , I know someone has said it will say contaminated but the truth is there is no way for the sensor to tell urea from pee in fact we discussed this to the point where if def is urea and water at 70/30 then how could they make a winter blend that prob has alcohol in it so it wont freeze wouldn't that come up as contamination it is all a scare tactic I believe to get you to buy the def....
