DEF

Is there a difference in DEF fluid? The Ford dealer said it is about $7 a gallon and theirs is better than the rest. Meijer has it for $5 something and I heard you can buy it at the "Pilot" truck stops for $2 something a gallon. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

When I picked up my truck the dealership said the owner had one. They said they topped off the DEF at the first oil change and it took 2.5 gallons.

I just wondering if the cheap stuff is as good as the expensive because there is a lot of difference between high and low depending where you buy it.

It's all the same. Run whatever you want. I have been getting mine from Pilot and it's been fine for 25,000 miles. I see no need in spending more than you need to.

Its water and urea ( nitrogen fertilizer). You don't want to stock up for more than 6 months , the urea breaks down into ammonia.

Thanks,

I didn't think it really mattered. Even if it came from a pump it is filtered. Ford naturally will tell you theirs is better than the rest. They also recommended a fuel condition that once again they sell.
