Have you ever filled the def with a bulk pump at a fueling stop ?? There is a truck stop..near me.. called "The Detroiter".. that sells bulk def.. for $ 2.79 a gallon

$2.79 is a good price for DEF as it is $10.99 per 2.5 gal at Walmart. In addition to the smell, it also helps it run less nosiy. My 2011 F250 with the diesel, holds 5.3 gal
of DEF and when it gets down to 1/2 of that, a warning light comes on and I add 2 and 1/2 gal. My experience is that I use 2 and 1/2 gal per 5,000 miles.

I had seen a video about filling your def tank .they suggest putting in 2 gallons at the "1/2 full " level...IF.. you are in a area where... there could be a hard freeze...for expansion...so it doesnt damage the tank..

Arrived in Decatur, Alabama at point mallard park. Sunny skies about 48degrees. Very little wind today, easy pull, average fuel economy since leaving Chicago last night 11.5mpg, diesel fuel 3.89/gal in Alabama. So far, everything is functioning, keep my fingers crossed on that.

I paid $2.69 a gallon at the local Murphys (WalMart) about a week ago and yesterday the price was $2.99 at the same station.

Arrived about 1:30. Weather overcast and 60's, 27 In Chicago, so can't complain. Mini Xmas tree setup, a little more work needs to be done outside, after a beverage....

Glad you had a safe trip! Where are you staying? Looks like a nice size lot.
