Motorcraft Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)

Subject:

COMING SOON - Motorcraft Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)
Click the image to open in full size.
The following information is provided to prepare Dealerships for the launch of the new 6.7L Diesel engine in the 2011 F-Super Duty. A more detailed communication will be released in January, 2010 once the new Motorcraft Diesel Exhaust Fluid is released for ordering.
WHAT IS DEF?
A non-hazardous clear fluid (67% deionized water / 33% chemically pure Urea) that is injected into the diesel exhaust system to reduce NOx emissions.
WHY DEF?
  • Required for the 2011 model year F-Super Duty 6.7L Ford diesel to meet 2010 EPA emission regulations
  • For use with competitive make vehicles using a SCR (selective catalytic reduction) system
  • The majority of diesel (light and heavy duty) manufacturers will use DEF to meet the new requirements

FAQ
Why use Motorcraft DEF?
Motorcraft DEF is API certified, meeting ISO22241, and is the only fluid approved and recommended by Ford Motor Company. Inferior product may result in costly damage to the SCR system. System damage as a result of inferior fluid is not eligible for warranty reimbursement.

How is the vehicle filled with DEF?
The fluid is supplied through a fill port located next to the diesel fuel fill port; it has a blue cap clearly marked for diesel exhaust fluid.
What is the capacity of the vehicle DEF tank?
The DEF tanks have a five to six gallon capacity, depending on the vehicle configuration.
How frequently will DEF need to be replenished?
The system is designed to last approximately 7,500 miles between fill ups, coinciding with the oil & filter change interval. However, depending on customer use, replenishment may need to occur more frequently.

Is there a DEF tank level gauge?
The vehicle instrument cluster will provide indication of fluid level in the DEF tank, as well as provide warning messages when the DEF is low and needs to be refilled.
Can the vehicle be operated without DEF?
The vehicle will not operate properly without DEF. When the vehicle DEF monitoring system detects no DEF is available, the vehicle initially goes into a speed limiting mode and then progresses into an idle only mode.
How should DEF inventory be stored?

DEF should be stored out of direct sunlight in temperatures between 23F and 86F (-5C and 30C)
  • Freezing point is 12F (-11C)
  • Prolonged storage at higher temperatures will cause DEF to breakdown reducing shelf life.
  • Storing DEF at 86F reduces shelf life to approximately 12months.
Can DEF freeze in the vehicle?
Yes. However, Ford Motor Company vehicles have a tank and line heater to ensure the vehicle operates in extremely cold climates.

I'm just putting out the info, thought it was strange to have a exhaust fuild. While under warranty I wouldn't use anything but the Motorcraft.

Under the law, FORD cannot void your warranty for using non-Ford parts and supplies that meet FORD specs.

Magnuson?Moss Warranty Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The key is.... MEET or EXCEED FORD specs.

I have to agree... This is actually one area that the MM Warranty Act would protect you. As long as the DEF you purchase is API certified, there should be no issue.

Here is a link to what will be the DOE's DEF Locator... http://www.afdc.energy.gov/afdc/locator/def/

Some additional info on Motorcraft DEF... Ford recently signed a contract with Terra Environmental Technologies Inc. to provide the DEF that will be used as factory fill as well as what will be branded as Motorcraft for dealer and consumer use. Terra also holds exlusive supplier contracts for DEF with Daimler and Hino, and preferred supplier contracts for DEF with Volvo NA and Mack Trucks NA.

Just a minor issue: I don't think API is the certification authority for DEF.

Don't know who or what it will be....

It will be so widely used that you shouldn't see it as a problem...

Too many truck makers are all using the same solution not to have clones out almost right away.

Ed,

It is my understanding that the prices should be in the system on Friday - 01/01/10.



For those who are wondering about part numbers. The following applies to USA. Canada may have different part numbers...

PM-27-1G = 1 Gallon Fast Fill Bottle w/ No Spill Nozzle

PM-27-J = 2.5 Gallon Jug w/ No Spill Nozzle

Honestly I do not believe that there is a "official" certification authority for DEF. Even API certification is voluntary. The key is that the DEF meets ISO22241 standards, which is what API will be using for its certification standards/minimums. The API certification will just give consumers proof that the DEF indeed meets the ISO standards and by doing so should eliminate any issues with Ford.

Here is a link to the API DEF site... Welcome to the API Diesel Exhaust Fluid Certification Website!
