Around here Yellow is E85. I googled it and your right there are stations using yellow for diesel.

I agree with DEF in the diesel tank and my post said that but around here the diesel nozzle is larger then the filler for the DEF so would hard to get diesel in the DEF tank. You may get the gas nozzle in the smaller DEF filler but I doubt if it would fit. Now I have Ford and not sure what size the DEF filler on the Ram is.

Yep, def in the diesel tank or gas in a diesel tank gets real bad. Diesel in the def tank isn't good (more of an issue with big rig guys) but not near as bad.
Most diesel nozels around here are the smaller ones that are the same as gas nozels.

I agree, I have never seen one but googled it and sure enough they are putting yellow on them which around here that's E85 - Black is gas and Green is Diesel.

Try to use "Car" diesel. It's B5-B10. Truck stop diesel can be up to B20. You'll get better mileage with the B10 in the smaller diesels (under 10 liter) IMHO. The big truck 13 liters, etc... don't seem to mind the B20. (I drive both.)

You will hardly use any DEF in everyday driving.... When towing you will use a lot more.

Def is Highly corrosive make sure rinse off any overspill.
Make sure you keep the red plug in the diesel filler when adding def. You can over fill the def before you know it. Def tank is about 6 gals but I could only get about 2 gals in it when the gage read 1/2.

Did you get 2wd or 4wd?

The filler tubes are clearly marked between the two. It would be difficult to mix them up. After your first fueling it will become second nature. The diesel knozzle won't fit in the DEF port.

You should always pay attention to what nozzle you're grabbing!

You bought a great truck!

This is my first diesel truck as well. I joined this Forum. I learned a ton.

Have a look under 4th Generation Ram Forum.
