Gettin' DEF'd!!!!!!!!!

Rolled up into Big Boy's truck stop on I-95, and pulled into one of the two lanes which are DEF equipped.

I got 3.53 gallons for 2.699/ gallon. The DEF was a whopping $9.53!!!

I wasn't near empty, but it's fairly close to me, and I wanted to check out the DEF pumps, and not have to pay a lot more for individual gallons from a store.

2333, but honestly, I don't believe it was topped off when we took delivery.

I did the same thing at a truck stop. I had to prepay. All they asked was which pump and if it was commercial or private use.

I've never had any problems at any commercial truck stop. I only fuel up my Ram 2500 Cummins at commercial pumps, because "car" diesel pumps are painfully slow.

The DEF pumps are awesome, and easy too.

Pulling the GC in at the pumps is akin to landing a Cessna at DFW!

Re: Gettin' DEF'd!!!!!!!!!

Did the same thing this weekend - topped off the DEF at a Flying J truckstop. 2200 miles on the Jeep, was not filled when I picked it up (didn't notice until it was too late). The little gauge turns red when you're below a quarter DEF, so I figured what the heck, I was down the street anyway. $19 to fill 'er up from under 1/4. I had a full tank of diesel so I didn't check to see if a high flow nozzle would fit in the filler neck...and it was ass-cold out so I didn't want to experiment at that particular moment. My heated seat and wheel were calling my name!

How about I never knew that DEF was greenish until I saw the HUGE container today.

Interesting. I've only bought DEF in 2.5 gal containers and 1/2 gal jugs. All were clear, like water.

Re: Gettin' DEF'd!!!!!!!!!

Well the stuff that we use has a greenish color to it. Very pale. Definitely NOT clear.
