My NAPA store sells it, (Eastern MO)

I have also been told that all the big truck stops (Pilot, TA, Loves...) sells it as well. I was also told as long as you do not shut off the truck it will keep running in order to get to a location to re-fill the DEF.

Hope this helps and good luck.

The DEF is injected into the exhaust stream and somehow removes the exhaust particulates. You can sick your finger inside the exhaust pipe and there is no black soot.

I am sure there is a lot more to than this, but this is my elementary understanding of it.

You could always just use some of your own brand.












J/K, may not be good for the truck.
