Funny my same 2011 2500hd has no issues with codes.

The injection rate is about 3% +/- so, keep track of your gallons of fuel purchased and do the math. 10 gals needs about 38 oz of DEF fluid and so on.

I traded for a 2012 GMC 2500HD diesel in Oct '14.....I have been told by a couple dealer service centers not to "top off" the DEF tank...let it run down to the warning, which I understand means there is still about 2 gal left, and then fill it back up to full. I haven't understood the reasoning in that. Does anyone know?

Can't make that assuption on all vehicles, as each mfg's tank has a different capacity.

According to my owner's manual for my GMC I have a 5 gal tank and you get your first warning at about 2 gal.

My dealer said my tank was full when I traded for the truck...I've never done anything with it other than I know by looking under the hood where the reservoir is at.....so if I found myself having to fill it up, I'd fill until that reservoir is full.

jtown. Your lucky. All mine has is a tube you use to fill it up. That requires a funnel plus it is not vented so when it is full it pukes it out.
Lovely

That shows you how close I looked(only have had my head under the hood twice)....LOL!!!...just went out and looked again and my GMC doesn't have anything other that what you have on your Chevrolet...a tube....I guess what I saw was the funnel shaped boot that surrounds the fill tube and thought that was some kind of a reservoir....my dealer service center has me spoiled...I depend on them to take care of everything.

Exactly my point, this is a Solera discussion, and the MB Sprinter chassis has a much smaller reservoir post '11 model year. I believe its some where around 3 1/2 gals. Just sayin'
