This Sticky now has more than enough practical information to help those new to DEF Sprinters.

Feel free to take government regulations and other issues to another thread.

The Sticky is closed. Thanks goes to all who contributed up to now.

The 10 start design was chosen by Mercedes, not ordered.

"While EPA will not prescribe a specific driver
inducement design
necessary to meet our acceptance criteria, we believe the examples
below could satisfy our objective for driver inducement designs."


"Another way to make sure vehicle operators are adding reducing agent when appropriate
is to have vehicle performance degraded in a manner that would be safe but would be
onerous enough to discourage the user from operating the vehicle until the reducing agent
tank was refilled. The key challenge of this approach is to determine what would
constitute an acceptable performance degradation strategy. A degradation approach which maintains vehicle or engine compliance with the emissions requirements helps address this concern. Additionally, use of this approach in combination with another system could be more appropriate."

Some ideas for handling DEF.

Particularly, since I don't want to risk aggravating existing lumbar issues. After months of diligent research, I feel compelled to share what I am confident you will agree a less arduous and guaranteed "NO SPILL" method.

Purchase a genuine Mercedes-Benz, one liter bottle of DEF, a $13 dollar value (pictured), equiped with a snazzy, spring loaded sprout that screws directly to the vehicle's DEF reservoir filling receptacle. Once attached a downward push activates the spring loaded sprout initiating the filling process and once full, automatically stops. No muss no fuss! The bottle can be detached without spilling a drop.

The one liter bottle can be replenished from the larger 2-1/2 gallon box, a brand of your preference.

Enjoy,

NOx

Ps: price varies from $9.00-$19.00. So, shop around.

Run clean water through it when you are done to prevent crystals from forming.

I find the shape of the 2.5 Gallon Terra-Cair Ultra Pure DEF "kit" far easier

(if you can find it) works a lot better as well.
If you remove both the fill cap and the vent cap, it seems to flow into your DEF reservoir
in about 1/2 the time as the "boxed" DEF brands in the cardboard box packaging.
The latest kits have a vent in the spout that seems to work just as well as the vent cap.
Your local Do It Best Hardware store can order it for you "shipped to the store" to save
freight/delivery cost.
