The DEF Filling Bugaboo !!!
The DEF tank is not only on the wrong side, but having the door open upward instead of sideways, it is difficult to get a jug in to pour. I have been using a funnel with a hose and two people to do the job. I also have resorted to pulling into diesel lanes the opposite way
After three years of wrestling with this, I have an idea on how to make the job easier. I was thinking of installing a small $20 self priming diaphragm pump (5 L/min) in the hydraulic compartment. 12V power is there, which is great. I was planning on a momentary switch to control. Again, the doors opening upward would mean that if the hydraulic pump door was open, one would have to stoop below it. To alleviate this, I was planning on extra length tubes and a switch on a line so that the hydraulic compartment door could be lowered, but not completely closed. Another thought is to install a water resistant box in the DEF tank compartment to house the pump (little more difficult).
Has anyone done something similar, have suggestions, or even a better idea?
