6.88 gallons of DEF today @ $2.89/Gal. My indicator was showing maybe 1/10 before the fill, then 9/10 after the fill (I'm interpolating the indicator). Maybe it will show 100% tomorrow... We'll see...

Mine did the same at around 2500 miles. I was clueless. Now I at least know what the heck I'm dealing with after a shit load of research online and talking to mechanics.

How do you access what the level of the DEF fluid is?

Mine never did go to full when I filled it up. I paid 1.38/Gal. I'm not complaining though

Comparing is fine.. I'm in the People's Republic of Maryland. By the gallon in the auto parts stores will run $6-$9 per.

I buy it in bulk so I get a price break. I didn't know what the average price was.

How many gallons is considered "bulk"? How much DEF do you use?

It's in the EVIC. I believe it's on the same set of screens as your oil temp, trans temp, etc. Just us the right/left controls to change the view. It's a 0 -100 % graphic indicator that is segmented into 25% indications. You have to "judge" the actual level.

I usually buy 4 to 5 330 gal totes at a time. I'll go through a tote every month to month and a half.

Not really. My family business has 40 class 8 trucks and 8 of those trucks use DEF.

Yea, that would do it then. If you were close, I'd give you $2.00/Gal. :-)
