DEF spill

Post  John Myrick on April 22nd 2013, 9:41 am

Had my truck serviced at a near by dealer this past Saturday and this is how they returned it, with DEF spilled on the paint ( Tuxedo Black )
How corrosive is this stuff and since I cleaned it up right away, has the paint been compromised ?

Thanks

Is DEF urea? If so it's corrosive. Can't tell you what it will do to your paint Neutral good luck tho

stuff happens, but get a water hose and wash the damn thing off before you send it out the door.

spill that stuff on the floor and 10 mins later there is a crusty white stain in its place. Burns like hell if you get it on your skin. I hate it.
