The DEF tank holds about 2 gallons, my first fillup came at about 2500 miles, so I'm not that sure about adding a gallon every 2 fillup's. but it's a good idea to have some in case it's needed in the middle of no where.

Our first and only time the DEF light came on was at 8600 miles and I filled 5 gallons in the tank of our 2011...

You maybe right about that, come to think about it when I added DEF last time the tank wasn't empty and I filled it with 2 gallons then.

Believe, starting with the 2012? models, the DEF tank was made smaller and moved, with filler now under the hood, freeing a storage compartment.

With regard to the original question about overheating, if I was concerned I would install a Scanguage - lots of info on this forum.
