I know where the DEF tank is. We don't have a gauge, can't see the dang thing to judge how full it is and it doesn't have a dip stick
To use for measuring liquid depth. So I've decided I don't like DEF for those reasons. Otherwise we guesstimate and add DEF after a few thousand miles. Driving a 2013 GMC 3500hd Denali truck.

I'm disappointed in my 2014 3500 GMC in that I pulled my 26ft'r 1400 miles and had to add DEF with only having 2600 miles on the truck. GM service said it has to do with the load your pulling as to how much DEF you use. When I purchased the truck, they said I would need to add DEF at the oil change, boy were they wrong. DEF is cheap, just fill'r up before you head out.

DEF

Yep. Carrying a couple bottles with us. Most truck places have so it's not hard to come by. You really didn't think the sales person knew all the details did you; or if he did know that he'd tell you? Lol

I have 4000 miles on my 2014 Chevy and haven't added DEF yet. Half of those miles are towing. Are you sure it was full to begin with?

I purchased a bottle/jug of DEF at my local Ford dealer.. And was told in a whisper .."Save the jug and refill it at pilot/flying Js travel centers"...and ..that's what I have done for over a year now...I pull into lanes where the semis refuel..top off the truck DEF on board tank ..then refill the jug if needed @ $2.79 per gallon..now...I am wait to hear a story about recycled beer for the urea and rain water for ionized h2o..
