Is there a shelf life on DEF fuid??

I currently have 5 diesels,my Jeep is the first that needs DEF Fluid.

I was up town yesterday and stopped by my dealer to have them top off the def tank.

The guy in the parts dept said up till yesterday they did not keep any on their shelf because it has a shelf life. Is this true?

I have yet to buy any DEF my self yet,but most auto parts and walmart are carrying DEF FLuid,NAPA is selling it for $6.49 per gallon or 13.99 for 2.5 gallons.

NAPA AUTO PARTS

Re: Is there a shelf life on DEF fuid??

Walmart has it too right by the oil. Yes it has a shelf life. The exact life expectancy was listed in a previous post but in general the higher the temperature the lower the shelf life which is true in general for most water-acid mixes...
It was posted before but this is a good source of information:

I dug up this document on the web. Chart three has a table that shows how the shelf life changes with temperature. Other cool info as well.
