Now have 68000 miles on our 2012 GMC Sierra XLT 2500HD Duramax/Allison....no mechanical issues on it so far...only thing I never figured out was why some design engineer could not have come up with a better fill on the DEF tank....IMO it's ridiculous where it's located and the effort it takes to fill...If I stop at a truck stop and fill with DEF, I usually have to pull in backwards to get the hose to the fill hole, it being on the passenger side up on the firewall...small little hole so you have to trickle it in...even on the small 2 1/2 gallon size that one can buy at Walmart, Sams, etc....either way,if you put the nozzle down into the hole there's no place for the air to go ...overflowing becomes a issue and DEF is corrosive...after filling, I have to wash off everything because of the spillage.

Huh. I've never had issues like that putting DEF in mine. Its not the most convenient place to have a fill, but that's the way it is.

I have problems every time I put in def in my truck, the container is not light and its awkward putting the def in. If it goes in to fast it comes out, I'm not 25 anymore. Well 26

If they would just make the fill tube 1/4-1/2 inch in diameter bigger, that would help...it's just big enough to stick the nozzle in and as I said earlier there's no room then for the air to escape....like you said it can't go in too fast and you never know when you're reaching the full mark....I'll still say relocating it to some other location would be a plus too.

Use a funnel or a hand held transfer pump. Both can be obtained from Harbor Freight... works for me.
