Adblue is a technology that has become a prevalent feature in modern diesel engines. It is a fluid that is injected into the exhaust system of diesel engines to reduce harmful emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx). However, like many modern technologies, Adblue has its issues, including the need for regular refills and increased fuel consumption. As a result, some people have turned to Adblue system deletes, remapping, and tuning as a solution. In this article, we will explore each of these topics in detail and discuss their benefits.
What is Adblue?
Adblue is a non-toxic, non-flammable, and biodegradable urea solution. It is used in Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems in diesel engines to reduce harmful emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx). The Adblue is stored in a separate tank in the vehicle and is injected into the exhaust system, where it reacts with the NOx to convert them into harmless nitrogen and water.
While Adblue has its benefits, it also comes with some issues. One of the most significant issues with Adblue is the need for regular refills. Adblue tanks typically need to be refilled every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, depending on the vehicle and driving conditions. Additionally, Adblue can increase fuel consumption as the system requires additional energy to operate.
Adblue System Deletes
Like DPF and EGR deletes, some people have turned to Adblue system deletes as a solution to the issues associated with Adblue. An Adblue system delete involves removing the Adblue system from the engine altogether. This is often done by replacing the entire SCR system with a custom exhaust system that does not include an Adblue system. Alternatively, some people choose to have the Adblue system physically removed from the engine while leaving the original exhaust system intact.
Pros and Cons of Adblue System Deletes
The main advantage of an Adblue system delete is that it eliminates the need for regular Adblue refills, which can be particularly beneficial for people who use their diesel engines in off-road or agricultural applications where the vehicle may be exposed to harsh conditions. Additionally, an Adblue system delete can increase the performance of the engine by improving airflow and reducing the energy required to operate the Adblue system, which can reduce fuel consumption.
Another solution to the issues associated with Adblue is Adblue remapping. Adblue remapping involves modifying the engine’s control module to alter the way the Adblue system operates. Specifically, Adblue remapping can adjust the amount of Adblue injected into the exhaust system or change the timing of the injection process.
Pros and Cons of Adblue Remapping
The primary advantage of Adblue remapping is that it can reduce the need for regular Adblue refills while still maintaining the benefits of the technology. Additionally, Adblue remapping can improve engine performance by optimizing the way the Adblue system operates.
