That is rather interesting. Several of us have seen peculiar DEF gauge readings (mine occasionally jumps from 20% to 30% and back, others see it not change). You are over 10K miles without adding DEF? If it were me, I would add four or five gallons and see what the gauge does and avoid the dealer if possible.

Peak BlueDEF has an encoded manufacturing date, not an expiration date.

There is no such thing as an expiration date since it's variable

Kind of like life. We all have a birth date but nobody knows when they will expire...depends on the conditions. Pretty philosophical, huh?

Best to choose a young one so it won't wear out quickly....

Okay, I guess my DEF gauge is working since it turned red today indicating the level is getting lower. Picked up some Blue DEF today from O'Reilly's but after reading all the issues people have with getting the incorrect DEF warning I'm a little worried the same will happen to me after refilling. I guess I will pour it in and hope for the best!
