RIGHT to the End © with Pastor Randy Diesel engines are required by law to use DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid).

What DEF is, at a chemical level, is a combination of deionized water and urea. Urea is a refined compound that is mostly used in the agricultural industry as a component of fertilizer.

A 2.5-gallon pack of BlueDEF sells for 16.00 to 20.00 (depending upon where you purchase it). Thats roughly 6.80 per gallon (which is about the current price of diesel). Note that this is for water and urea. It isnt a hydrocarbon but is ionized water and fertilizer and yet is the same price as diesel.

No doubt youve noticed that urea/fertilizer is now almost unobtainable in many places/regions due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Farmers and ranchers will not be able to reasonably afford fertilizer with which to grow corps. But, in this country, this also means that Diesel tractors, trucks, and pickups will soon be forcibly parked.

From Four Wheel Trends:

In some trucks with low levels of DEF fluid or without any DEF fluid, the trucks ran sluggish and would not go faster 5 mph. The trucks power output drastically reduces, and if the vehicle runs out of fluid, it will not start, or its speed will not exceed 5 mph (the electronic system will de-rate the engine). A red warning light is displayed on the dashboard screen until the fluid is replaced.


Does anyone actually think that the slowing down & even shutting down of the entire shipping industry (including pickup trucks) and the concurrent slowing down of farming & ranching is an accident? ... Pastor Randy

Does anyone actually think that the slowing down and even shutting down of the entire shipping industry (including pickup trucks) and the concurrent slowing down of farming and ranching is an accident?

From Vision Times:

CF Industries, one of the worlds largest fertilizer producers, told the public it cannot ship via Union Pacific rail lines for the foreseeable future as the carrier struggles with staffing issues (note: the staffing issues are [presumably] related to UP in an efforts to clear the tracks for ethanol and grain shipments).

The company also stated that products most affected would be urea and urea ammonium nitrate fertilizer (UAN), in addition to diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), which diesel engine vehicles such as semi-trucks require for their mandated emissions control systems

From LeoHomann.com:

Headline: Major railroad company curtailing shipments of fertilizer ahead of crucial spring planting season ... Decision adds to worries about coming food shortages

CF Industries, the nations largest manufacturer of fertilizers, is warning its customers that fertilizer shipments will be delayed and may not reach farmers in time for the critical spring planting season because of a move by Union Pacific Railroad to limit the volume on private boxcars carried by its rail lines.

The railroad company ordered CF Industries and 29 other shippers cut their volume by 20 percent. Union Pacific says the reductions are needed to reduce congestion, but CF Industries said it would ask federal regulators to intervene and end the railroad restrictions.

Why Union Pacific would single out the nations largest fertilizer producer just as it is trying to get its product to farmers in time for spring planting is suspicious, to say the least.


If you drive a diesel powered vehicle, you would do well to stock up on DEF while its still available.

If you drive a diesel powered vehicle, you would do well to stock up on DEF while its still available. Weve been told to our faces to brace for shortages and hardships that are sure to come.

Expect fuel prices to hit 10 dollars per gallon soon while Mr. Biden laughs and smiles and tells us that we must suffer for the good of his Green agenda.
