BlueTEC® technology helps to balance performance and efficiency in Mercedes-Benz diesel engines. Currently, diesel engines with BlueTEC® technology are only available in Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans. Find out how the BlueTEC® system works today.

How Does a BlueTEC® Engine Work?

When you’re filling up your vehicle in West Bloomfield, MI, efficiency determines how much you’ll pay at the pump. Luckily, the BlueTEC® Mercedes-Benz system uses sophisticated design to keep fuel costs and emissions down:

  • An ordinary diesel engine sends fuel to each cylinder via a mechanical pump. However, a BlueTEC® engine uses a pressurized central fuel rail.
  • Before exhaust exits the vehicle, the BlueTEC®exhaust treatment system works to remove harmful elements. AdBlue is the most common type of BlueTEC® exhaust system.
  • Piezo injectors split up the fuel injection cycle into separate parts, resulting in lower emissions and stronger overall efficiency.
