DEF in the DEF Tank, YES; DEF in the Diesel Tank, NO.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is a vital component of a Select Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. It’s a clear solution made of Urea and water that’s colorless but has the smell of ammonia.

Your machine has a separate DEF tank that varies in size depending on what model you’re running, and it usually has a blue cap for easy identification.

LF120 HydroSeeder applying hydromulch
