Should be interesting, leaving tonight in 25-35mph NW winds. The scene as it is now, truck and camper full of snow and ice. 6 hours to Louisville tonight.

I have a 2012 Ram 3/4 ton with the Cummins 6.7L diesel engine and it doesn't require def. I was told (unofficially) that Ram did some jiggeling with the performance numbers and got away without having to use def.

Can you tell me what is def fluid? I guess I have never used it, because I do not know what it is. Is it for cleaning injectors or anti gel ? .......

D.E.F. is.. diesel exhaust fluid...it is added to help clean the emisssions ..my truck doesnt smell like a diesel at the tailpipe..i have a seperate filler tube (blue in color).. next to the ultra low diesel fuel (green) filler cap..both behind the fuel door on the drivers side...from what i saw on a video... it seems the best thing for me to do is...wait until i get a "1/2 full" warning message ..then add 2 gallons of def to the def tank... which ..on my truck.. has a 5 gallon capacity ..hope this helps.
