Here's the link to the site I purchased it from.

Amazon.com: Sierra Tools Battery-Operated Liquid Transfer Pump, Model# JB5684: Home Improvement
$15 for the pump, how many fill ups do you plan to get before it gets crusted up from dried DEF? I would personally stick to buying in boxes.

The problem with the box is it 2.5 gal. and the spout will not fit under the door to tip it and pour from the box. What I do is transfer into one gal water jugs and mark them DEF. I can then pour right from the jug. It's just a little hassle but not that big a deal. The pump would just need to be rinsed and flushed and it would last a long time. For 15 dollars I will give it a try.

After filling DEF tank with pump I then purge pump by pumping about a gallon of water through the pump.

I just fill the kitchen sink with water and pump it from one side to the other. No issue crusting up so far and any water in the pump after purging evaporates before I use it again.
