Emissions equipment compatibility

Efficiently running your engine means effectively managing the wellbeing of your business. After treatment devices such as Diesel Particulate Filters trap potentially harmful soot and ash combustion by-products before they can be released to the environment. Blocked filters increase fuel consumption, so the low-ash additive system in is designed to actively reduce filter blocking 4.
