Went in to the auto parts store today, and in addition to the usual 2.5 gallon Peak BlueDEF fluid, they had a new variety Peak BlueDEF Platinum. Claims to have "special proprietary additive." Anyone had any experience? Notice any changes? Of course, it's more expensive. Here's what their website says:

BlueDEF PLATINUM™ with exclusive ADVANCED SYSTEM SHIELD™ TECHNOLOGY is designed to significantly reduce harmful deposits in the selective catalytic reduction system thus providing optimum fuel economy, saving money on costly repairs, and sustaining the life of your SCR system.

I would say that it couldn't hurt. I would say that the majority of the plugging would be in the DPF vs the SCR, but anything helps I supposed. Run a few jugs through and let us know if it works. It's API certified so there should be no issues. They have a commercial for it.

No opinion on the "enhanced" DEF. But FWIW I'll note that on an early fill I bought a much cheaper DEF than the "Blue DEF". Carried at Wal Mart. Not good. Ran through 2.5 gal in a few hundred miles and obviously was not as efficient as the "Blue DEF." A reminder that sometimes you get what you pay for.

DEF is 67.5% deionized water and 32.5% Urea (yeah goggle it) = I don't see how you can possibly squeeze any "performance" out of this catalyst = this is example of pure marketing BS...
