When Did Def Start In Diesel. I am getting mixed information. Mistakes can happen and it is apparently very expensive if you start the engine with def in the wrong tank.
Def is accidentally mixed with diesel fuel. If not started (realizing a mistake was made), just removing the fuel, having the tank cleaned and refill with diesel will not damage the engine. Posted by mcnally on november 30, 2021.

So On Ford Pickups, The 6.4L Power Stroke, Def Has Been Required From April 2010 Onward.
Mistakes can happen and it is apparently very expensive if you start the engine with def in the wrong tank. Def is accidentally mixed with diesel fuel. The def filler is just on the driver's side whereas the diesel filler is on both sides.
When Commercial Fuel Services Started Including Def.
The technology was first used in series production in diesel vehicles by nissan diesel in japan in 2004 to meet emissions standards that were the strictest in the world at that time. Their studies had found that nox and particulate matter were linked to different respiratory and cardiovascular diseases that caused thousands of additional hospitalizations and deaths. Lets just say i've owned it for a year and put 22k miles on it and have not filled it myself.

Def, an acronym for diesel exhaust fluid, is the trucking industry’s response to u.s. So, dodge cummis started using def in 2007. Those are at least the years in the trucking industry, i'm guessing its the same for passenger cars.
Despite The Fact That Diesel Fuel Is Separated From Def By Safeguards, It Still Happens:
With the goal of reducing engine emissions further, specifically regarding nox and particulate matter, the epa introduced diesel exhaust fluid (def) 2010. You don’t want to end up stranded somewhere because you didn’t refill the def tank. By adding def, the makers are able to tune the engines better, and greatly reduce the particulates going to the dpf.
What Year Did They Start Using Def Fluid In Diesel Trucks?
I think egr was required in 2004, dpf in 2007, and def injection in 2010 (unless they found a different way of meeting epa requirements). At some point though the diesel engine will not start. I see in some places that a 2009+ started using def, but i am 99.9% sure my '10 does not use it.
