I actually work for one of the Major truck OEM's and have done testing with urea and its effects on harnessing.

Urea smells like ammonia, very strong and unpleasant.
Urea is very corrosive and once it is on an object and dries it will leave behind white crystallization. You definetly don't want this in the cabin.

This is my guess, it's how most Urea tanks are handled.

There's not a lot of places to put a fairly large piss tank. So they either use one of the few (replace spare tire), or they have a small piss tank and you have to refill it fairly often.

Re: 2014 Diesel Question

I believe in my 335d the urea is where the spare should be. Not sure though - the dealer deals with the refills. One of the nice perks of a BMW is the free maintenance.

Smile Re: 2014 Diesel Question

I am curious to see the size of the diesel filler. It would be awesome if it took a truck nozzle like my 2006 VW TDI. My 2009 VW TDI did not take a truck nozzle. I will be towing my GC Diesel with my Diesel Motorhome it will be very convenient to fill them both up at the same time. Also, the truck stops also have DEF at the Pump, it is around $3.80 a gallon. I just looked up on line and it showed Peak DEF at $13. Quite a ripoff.

I think every 3rd time filing up with ULSD, big rigs need to fill the DEF tank. Their fuel tanks are huge though. They get 8.5mpg but they have two 150 gallon tanks. That is a a maximum range of 2,550 miles. So filling every 7,500 miles is just about right for an oil change on the GC EcoDiesel.

I edited this because I was confusing two different discussions about the DEF from 2 different forums...

Re: 2014 Diesel Question

The 2011-13 WK2 diesel won't accept a truck filler down the filler neck here in Australia.
I think it is likely the 2014 won't either.
It is one of the few things we don't like in our CRD as it cuts down on our refuel options.
I've seen a couple of reports others here in OZ have just stuck the first part of the truck nozzle down the filler and got fuel in but looks like a recipe to get covered in diesel to me.

Re: 2014 Diesel Question

I have used a truck nozzle (high flow) and although it can be used in the GC, it will take a very long time to fill the tank. Quicker by far to use the standard pump at the service station.

I have an adapter for use with my Jetta diesel. Which I am afraid to use. I don't know why they can't use the Style they had in 2006?? All diesel fuel here in the U.S. is now ULSD(Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel). Also, since the old filler was huge compared to gasoline's filler I'm sure it would be harder to put the wrong fuel in. Now with the gas and diesel practically the same size putting gas in a diesel would be easier for the uneducated.

Re: 2014 Diesel Question

Just a question. What prevents you filling the DEF tank with H20.

Will it damage the converter?

In Florida where there are no Auto inspections of any kind including emissions tests. I bet you could dismantle illegally a lot of the emissions system. And get away with it; DEF is available at most of the places I fill up with diesel. I would not use water in my DEF tank because it defeats the Emissions system. The question you should ask is what happens if you don't fill the DEF tank and let it go empty. DEF is very cheap if you fill up at a truck stop.

On a tractor the engine loses power, you only have enough to get back to the def tank. I'm guessing if you put H20 in, it'd also lose the power.

Someone suggested in on of the other MY14 threads that likely the system will only give you a limited number of engine starts if you are out. It didn't sound like it was confirmed yet tho.

Re: 2014 Diesel Question

Anybody learn yet where the urea tank is located on the jeep? Since the front engine bay can accomodate a 6.4L hemi, I would hope there is some empty space up there for the tank and not in the spare tire well.
