Re: Urea question

You can also get it at the pump in many areas: Pilot Flying J

Currently $2.79-$2.89 per gallon in the US it seems.

FYI, DEF = AdBlue = Specialized Urea (aka, not you + a case of Coors Light + Time).

If you drive like a normal person, don't worry. If you store the vehicle for 3+ months out of the year, go buy a transfer pump, do it yourself for a fraction of the cost, and don't worry. In the immortal words of the TDI forums (which fret over EVERYTHING it seems), drive more, worry less.

lol, I did notice that across all TDI forums, no matter which brand. Maybe because, unlike in Europe, most NAFTA buyers go against the norm when choosing to buy a TDI. So, it is something special.

I was planning to keep mind topped off at truck stops. I'm not an expert, but it seems like it would be fresh (sees turnover from big rigs) and its stored at a good temp underground (unlike the pre-packaged stuff you buy in jugs). Cheaper and easier too. I assume you just pump it, no need to mess with funnels and stuff.

That should be the case provided the nozzle fits which may be the only stumbling block.

The DEF fill nozzle is located next to the fuel cap and not in the trunk (Seriously, WHY MERCEDES, VW WHY?), it should be a snap.

Does the JGC have the magnet that open some of the pumps? I was reading the Ford info on Urea and they mentioned that some of the pumps have a magnetic locking mechanism that prevents you from putting Urea in the diesel filler, and since the Fords don't have that magnet in the inlet you can't use those pumps.

Re: Urea question

That is a good question. I'll have to go find that out.

Re: Urea question

This will be my first diesel that takes DEF. I see it at Walmart all the time in the oil isle. this basically diluted uric acid which is low pH thus will eat your paint or anything else that acid would eat. From what I have read our diesels are easy to fill which means most of us will not use some flash program to bypass the burning off of particulate. Anyone notice anything different when this thing is running injecting DEF? On SuperDuties you can tell but I have no experience on the JGC and about to order this thing next week when my SO gets back in town...

This is incorrect. Automotive Urea is NOT uric acid and not even related to it. It's an Aqueous Urea Solution made with 32.5% high-purity urea and 67.5% deionized water. A fresh solution of Automotive Urea does NOT have low pH and is not acidic, but is rather pH9 - pH10 which is weak alkaline. As you mentioned, Aqueous Urea has affinity to some metals and can corrode them, so it needs to be handled with care around vehicle body parts.
