I read your post twice, very carefully. I don't have a clue what you know. It sounds as if you know nothing. You certainly don't seem to know enough to refute some silly statement about DEF being related to the brakes.

Here's my favorite thread about DEF. Watch the video. It's as entertaining as it is informative.

How DEF Works In A Diesel Engine

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

I'm sure it was a misunderstanding and he did not mean it in a bad way. Maybe he knew some of the information but not enough to know if it was related to the brake system or not.

Third post...

Thanks for the picture and the article, but if you read my post I already know all that.

Could have fooled me...you were asking for help, information and if you “already knew that”, you would not have asked if it had anything to do with the “air” brake system. I suggest that you reread your initial post and explain how my response missed the mark.

Implied in the name...”Diesel Exhaust Fluid”; totally unrelated to the brakes. It’s not a fuel additive, stored in a separate tank and injected after initial combustion.

Got any more questions I can answer incorrectly?

  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Hey guys, I dont think he meant it offensively. Look at the grammar, as it appears English is his second language. What he meant was he found plenty of info regarding DEF and exhaust but nothing relating to brakes which confused him.

He was given some bad information and trying to find something to refute. However, you cant prove a negative.

So David, the answer is that your classmates are in their learning stage also and do not have a clue yet.

Keep studying and I applaud your desire to seek knowledge! hang around here for a bit.

Thanks everyone of you for your answer, very helpful, if it was wrong written or read, maybe because my first language is Spanish and sometimes my expression sound rough, is like you don't have a clue is I have a clue, lol Thanks again note I'm 100% sure that I was 100% correct
