Liquid urea exhaust injection...novel idea...supposedly a tank will be used for this. I work with that stuff in my job and let me tell you, this stuff will crystallize like a mofo when it dries. Gets real crusty. Very high nitrogen content and over time if not used fast enough, the solution breaks down among other things into very stinky ammonia. Also MSDS lists it as a skin irritant. Easily redissolves in water, but it can get pretty messy looking if you don't stay on it.

Shouldn't be a big deal.......there really isn't anything in the Chvey line up easy to get right now, except the Malibu and Traverse...

Trucks are almost impossible. I'm thinking a plant or two should have been left open.

This is not good news for us at all.

We do a great amount of Duramax business here!
