Aftertreatment systems remain the source of much confusion and frustration for fleets and drivers alike. In this episode we discuss some of the problems that arise from lack of maintenance and a general lack of understanding of how the systems function. Our guests bring nearly three decades of combined experience cleaning and servicing aftertreatment systems.
