Where to Get DEF/ How Much Per Gallon

I thought I would do a thread on where to get DEF.

I am sure there are many places including the dealer but for the sake of new members I find Walmart with 2 1/2 gals of DEF at $11.XX pretty fair.

I assume that you can get it at Advance Autoparts and Autozone too.
How about those that have found it to add to this thread where you got it, how much it was per gallon.

Re: Where to Get DEF/ How Much Per Gallon

Most big chain truck stops(pilot/flying j etc) will have bulk DEF at fuel islands for big trucks. The fuel lanes are marked with blue DEF signs up top. Usually priced about a dollar/gal less than diesel.

BTW be sure to pull forward when you're done pumping so the big truck can fuel.

Re: Where to Get DEF/ How Much Per Gallon

+1 on truck stops. I filled my DEF at a Flying J in Maryland...for $17. MUCH cheaper than the by-the-gallon-jug price.

+1 on truck stop DEF. Pilot Truck Stops have it at the island with pay at the pump. The pumps auto-stop and there is less risk of spillage with the pump than a jug and DEF is nasty stuff.

+1 on Truck Stop DEF. I filled up my DEF at a Shell Truck Stop for $2.79 gal. Much cleaner and easier too.

+1 on walmart. I grabbed one to have as a 'just in case' just like I did with the oil.

I'll go to the flying J around here when I actually need the DEF and am thinking about it.

Re: Where to Get DEF/ How Much Per Gallon

Thanks for the Link, Found out there was a DEF pump 6 miles from my house on a route that I go on from time to time. I also go by a Flying J but that place is usually really busy so could be a hassle as they do not have a pump for anything other than the trucks.

Re: Where to Get DEF/ How Much Per Gallon

I found 2.5 gallon containers at NAPA for $10.99. Pep Boys and Baxter Auto Parts were at $14.99 for the same brand.

Just make sure you cycle it through after a while. DEF will degrade over time, especially if stored at high temperatures.

From a Cummins bulletin:

Quote:
Q. What is the shelf life of DEF?
A. The shelf life of DEF is a function of ambient storage temperature. DEF will degrade over time depending on temperature and exposure to sun light. Expectations for shelf life as defined by ISO Spec 22241-3 are the minimum expectations for shelf life when stored at constant temperatures. If stored between 10 and 90 deg F, shelf life will easily be one year. If the maximum temperature does not exceed approximately 75 deg F for an extended period of time, the shelf life will be two years.
