If a Ram or Ford owner can not distinguish the difference between a large green cap and a small blue one then they need to look at the Silverado HD or better yet a gasser.
Chevy sales advertising should use your recommendation!

sounds like something you learned on a GM forum...

Honestly on my Ram I don't think you could put DEF in the Fuel tank.. Not without really trying... The way they do the dual flappers for the fuel fill with the cap-less design you would have to shove that little plastic hose 8" down the neck or it would just pour out on the ground under the truck.

No idea on a Ford.

I trade every 4 to 5 years. Really do not care where the mileage is at. Lower millage better trade. Longest I ever kept a truck was my 2001 chevy dully and traded with 25000 miles. Later RJD

Nope, someone on here did it a few months ago and posted it. I believe it was a ram owner too.

I don't worry about miles either but trade more often than you do. The 2016 F250 diesel was purchased after last Christmas and close to 18,000 on it now.

Keeping mine till the body is gone that's to north east Ohio. 130k and still in great shape, body and all.

Your worried about def in diesel or diesel in def. People still put gas in diesel and diesel in gas. Mistakes happen, but stupidity does too

I have never traded one in. My 1970 f 250 4x4 with the detroit 6v53 went 400000. The body was getting rough so I ordered a new 250 6.9 extended cab in 1983.Junked the '70. the 6.9 was upgraded fo`r more power with a full Banks turbo setup in 1994 at 190000. I finally spun the mains in it at 300000 + in 1999,parted it out and ordered the 250 ex cab 4x4 7.3 in 1999. Last year when we bought the 315wp,it needed a power upgrade,it had 210000 on it then. I am very satisfied with the performance now and since it has no emmission crap on it,I will start replaceing sheet metal this fall and just keep it.

"Emission crap" will keep the air clean for your children,theirs and. Too bad some people just don't get it. Just my humble opinion of course.
