Store DEF properly to increase shelf life and prevent impurities
Storage life varies for DEF, but in proper conditions it can maintain quality up to 12 months. DEF should be:
- Stored in stainless steel, coated carbon steel or specific high-density plastic containers, as DEF can corrode other materials and introduce contaminants
- Kept in a temperature-controlled location and out of direct sunlight DEF is best stored between 12- and 86-degrees F (-11 and 30- degrees C). Since it is water based, DEF can freeze into a solid state. Freezing DEF has no effect on its quality or performance, but it can expand up to 7 percent when frozen
What are the benefits of using DEF?

This is important because:
- NOx is harmful to the environment: as an air pollutant, it contributes to smog, acid rain, etc.
- NOx is harmful to people: its exposure can lead to heart and respiratory disease

The effects of this include:
