Another day, another emissions requirement
07/08/2010

The technology isn’t new – it has been used in power plants for some time now and in automotive applications in Europe for several years. It is also very effective. The goal is to reduce nitrous oxide emissions up to 90 percent, hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide emissions by 50 to 90 percent and particulate matter emissions by 30 to 50 percent. While similar to European requirements, the standard is actually far more stringent. All diesel vehicles from class I to class 8 are included in this requirement. Tank sizes for the DEF solution will be in the 13 to 25 gallon range. DEF consumption will be approximately 2 percent of diesel consumption.

The best time to schedule an annual tune-up is during the summer season. A regular cleaning will ensure that the oil heating system will run at peak efficiency and will result in a 10-15% savings in heating oil.
