For many reasons I feel better spending a little more by simply never setting foot in Wally World. They are responsible for the loss of many jobs and small business while paying employees peanuts.

So I guess my question is all Blue DEF created equal ? My New Ram 2500 with the Cummins is almost at the half way mark on it's first tank so I am going to be filling it soon. I would imagine the easiest thing to do is go to the truck stop and just pump it or am I missing anything ?
"Blue DEF" is a brand, I believe, marketing stuff. DEF is a urea solution, nothing high tech. Mercedes Benz, which is quite picky about fluids esp. oil, only requires it meets ISO 22241 which the ones I have seen all do. Also available on Amazon but not as cheap as a truck stop. I'll keep a gallon in the basement to avoid an emergency surprise in some remote corner of the world, which we hope to get to SOON!

Not quite - they make their Italian and French bread in- store and IMO it's quite good - especially at $1.00 per loaf.

I do the same. My Ford dealer tries to price match for me. Since it says Motorcraft, I'm good if any problems arise from the DEF system.

Oh I don't know. Walmart has their good points as well as their not so good points. Depends on your view point.

One of my sons is a Longshoremen Union member and makes a great living from it. He hates Walmart for understandable reasons.

One of our older couples we know that are retired on a limited income loves Walmart for their lower costs on food,medical prescriptions,etc. also for understandable reasons.

YMMV

So I guess Walmart and good stuff may not be an oxymoron after all - at least in some things.

Enough said.
