Re: Phillips 3157 LED Brake/Turn

Re: Is there a shelf life on DEF fuid??

Yes that sounds like a good strategy. I'll probably do the same. No need to be overly concerned about this. A full tank should last about 16,000 km. Your mileage may vary. Happy motoring :D.

Yes it would be great for the engine esp. with high lift cams but you can kiss your SCR catalyst and DPF goodbye as it will "poison" them. Zinc will NOT burn off your DPF. Think of it as "ash". This...

Re: Review of '14 GC Ecodiesel

You're confusing DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) with DPF (diesel particulate filter),two separate but essential components of the emission system.

TypeRod: Not sure about the TDI but on the JGC VM engine, the turbo is liquid cooled which should help to prevent oil coking.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Towing generates higher combustion temps. which allows NOx levels to skyrocket. Therefore more DEF is required to reduce these high levels back down to concentrations that will keep the EPA happy.
