Post BlueTEC II

Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC II diesel

Last year, Mercedes-Benz introduced its BlueTEC clean-diesel technology in Canada in the E320 sedan. BlueTEC II, which is available in the 2009 R-Class, ML and GL, takes that technology a step further, satisfying current and forthcoming emissions regulations throughout North America, including California.

It varies from the previous version by the addition of a "wet" after-treatment system in the exhaust to treat nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions – one of the major ingredients in smog – which are inherent products of lean combustion in diesel engines. The system is called "wet" because it involves the injection of a urea-based liquid called AdBlue into the exhaust system ahead of its selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalyst. When the AdBlue is injected into the exhaust it is converted to ammonia, which is then stored in the SCR cat. When NOx enters that converter, it reacts with the ammonia to form water and nitrogen.

While the system is somewhat complex, it means today's modern diesels can meet the same exhaust emissions regulations as gasoline engines, thus enabling access to the other advantages of diesel, including reduced fuel consumption and high torque output.

it's only a matter of time that California will get diesel MLs now that emission regulations are met.

Check again--Mercedes 2009 models (not E-class) are 50-state legal.
