"Urea tanks will be standard equipment for most new diesel trucks, buses, cars, and sport utility vehicles (SUVs) manufactured in the United States after Jan. 1, 2010. An automotive grade of urea will be injected into the vehicles' exhaust stream to "scrub" nitrogen oxide (NOx) from the diesel exhaust."

I think that the IRA were well ahead trainslux.

I would rather worry about the stink of the exhaust. Every dog for miles will want to pee on every disease-ill vehicle they can find :-))

You may be confusing urea with ammonium nitrate. Both fertilisers, but it's the latter mixed with diesel that's the commercial (and terrorist) explosive.

And I believe Cat has decided to not make any more truck engines due to ever increasing emission laws.

There's a power station in SA that's been doing this for years to reduce emissions.
