October 14, 2009 - Mazda’s latest four-wheel-drive likes a wee drink.

The Mazda CX-7 uses a special man-made liquid similar to human urine to reduce emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx). The compound, called AdBlue, is a mixture of roughly one-third pure urea and two-thirds demineralised water.

It is already widely used in the trucking industry in Europe and Australia and is common in diesel cars in Europe, but Mazda is the first to use the technology on a passenger vehicle in Australia.

The technology, called selective catalyst reduction, involves injecting the urea-based liquid into the car’s exhaust system to turn NOx emissions into harmless nitrogen and water.

Imagine if your car could run entirely on piss? I would invent a car with a toilet for a driver’s seat. The drunk driver’s of the world would be able to power their cars for miles.
