What DEF tester are you using?

Been thinking of purchasing OTC 5025 DEF tester. Seems to be cheap insurance to test DEF before filling. I only put 2.5 gallons DEF in when tank reaches 1/4 full.

Why test. Just put in 2.5 gal at a time of Peak Blue purchased from Wally World when it gets below 1/4 full. My rig has the latest software updates which seems to have eliminated many of the nuisance MILs I got during the first year of ownership.

Since I only put in 2.5 gallons of DEF every 3 or 4 months, want to make sure DEF at full strength.
Found OTC test kit for $69 with free shipping.

Received my OTC tester today. Tester very easy to use. Calibration was right on, no need for adjustment.
Purchased Peak blue DEF from Walmart. Happy to report test result 32.5% urea
