I also bought 2 1/2 gallons at Flying J for 11.99. Somebody has to have a homebrew recipe. It is 62% water and 38% urea.

If i'm buying a $60,000 truck I don't think I'm going to chance homebrewing DEF when I can completely fill it every 7000 miles or so for $20.

My truck only cost $44K, but at 1800 miles it said I only had 1200 miles to go before refilling. At $8/gallon (what I paid) $40 to fill it every 3000 miles makes homebrewing at least a LITTLE tempting.

Priced DEF the other day up here in Canada at a Flying J, $15 a gallon! WTF happened to the 2.89/gallon people were talking about when all this DEF talk started?

Not many vehicles use it now so it is still a niche product. When there is more demand, the suppliers will ramp up supply and the price will go down.

From what I've seen truck stops are your best bet.

It let's you know at 800 miles to go that you need it bad. It has a graduated automatic shutdown procedure that eventually ends with "if you shut it off, it will not re-start". It really should not be an issue. Cheezit told me the truck's sensor knows the difference between DEF and distilled water. It looks like my truck will go 5500 miles or so on one tankful. I put the 2 1/2 gallons in at 3500 and the monitor was happy.

Regards

My display warned me at about 1800 miles that I could only travel another 1200 miles before refilling. That's only 3000 miles, but I don't know if the tank was filled when I picked up my truck. I added 2 gallons, and now have 2600 miles on my truck, so I'll see what happens. At 300 miles to empty your truck will be limited to a speed of 55 until you add more DEF.

You can get gallons at any VW dealership. List is $4.99. if you buy a case which you would need for your truck (no vw holds more than 1 gallon) they might cut u a break.
