Diesel semi trucks create “after combustion” gasses. When released, they are damaging to the environment. Thankfully, newer model semi trucks have sophisticated after treatment systems.These systems were created to clean the exhaust and emissions. But not at the cost of losing performance and power.
It is very important to maintain these systems properly. This will help avoid very costly repairs and maintenance. Servicing these systems can come outside of the regular maintenance that you normally receive from your diesel mechanic.
Also, maintaining these systems will give you the peace of mind in knowing that you are operating within the scope of government emissions regulation requirements. This will help to eliminate or decrease your risk of compliance violations.
