I've had both diesel and DEF spill on my paint many times. I've never bothered to clean it off other than on the rare occasion that the truck gets washed and the paint hasn't been hurt that I can see. I don't see what the big deal is?

It has been proven that the chemical composition of diesel fuel can damage paint over extended periods(think years not weeks or months). Essentially what the research shows is that while that spill wont affect your paint today, or even this year, it in the future can potentially lead to clear coat peeling, paint bubbling, or even promote a spot for rust growth.

As for DEF, I don't know how much if any research exists about it's affects on paint. Although the DEF is largely made out of H20, so I would imagine that it's affects on paint are little if any.

When i was in highschool i had a mazda millenia and i would let the attendants pump my gas..of course these @$$clowns would over fill it. After a year or so the paint started to check ( little cracks ). I now pump my own gas and diesel. It over filled on my truck once and thats cuz i pumped the diesel on the Turnpike and i believe it was high flow. I usually ride around with a bottle of detailer spray and microfiber cloth to clean up just incase.
