Yes the newer diesel trucks can use the truck pumps. Be aware though, these pumps are designed for a very high flow rate and if you lock the trigger wide open you probably will have quite a diesel spill even with the auto shutoff. Eighteen wheelers have fuel tank capacities of 150 to 300 gallons, hence the high flow rate. When I fuel up at truck pumps (almost always) I never lock the trigger and instead manually control the flow of fuel. I havenít had a fuel spill yet.

I donít use DEF so I canít help you with that question.

You just made DH a very happy camper. Gonna try it at next stop. Hope the truckers don't laugh us out of the fuel,lanes. Thanks!!

If you use these truckers pumps get in and get out. Don't fool around. They get pretty upset.

Fuel up and pull forward so the truck behind you... Then go do whatever you need to inside (pay, grab some drinks, hit the restroom). By the time the rig behind you fills up, you'll be gone unless you are gonna sit on the throne for a while or sit down for a bite to eat....then you need to go park it before hand.

And as Oakman said, stay with the pump and don't use if full blast. I had one not auto-off for me and I had a Diesel Geyser coming out of my truck one day.

Using the truck pumps is another benefit to owning a diesel truck. No more trying to maneuver around the gasoline pumps that were designed for cars and no more wondering if the canopy over the pumps is high enough.

Never shut diesel down, year round. Gas I only shut down in summer, let it run in winter.

For Duramaxes anything 04.5 you shouldnt have an issue using the bigger nozzles,01-04 have a smaller filler neck. Grew up on farms and have never shut off a diesel while fueling, tractors,semis, light duty. I dont see an issue unless im going inside the gas station. I laugh at the comment about Cylinder wash, Do you realize how many semis,generators,light duty trucks that idle for long durations and not a single issue due to cylinder wash.

Some folks are just inconsiderate of other people not wanting to hear a rattling diesel too.

never leave running, my EGT probe is in the manifold and sitting at idle it reads 250-350 just after a cold start, if I hit a really short ramp and immediate turn for fuel I might let it sit for a few minutes..
