The four videos include general product background on Detroit Diesel’s DD13, DD15 and DD16 family of diesel engines; guidelines on driving for optimal fuel economy and power; specifics on BlueTec SCR emissions aftertreatment, including detailed information about diesel exhaust fluid (DEF); and updates on DDEC, which is Detroit Diesel’s proprietary electronic engine monitoring system.
