DEF. why such a price difference?

7.99 a gall at auto part store, and 2.89 at truck stop. Is it that simple or am I missing something?

The TA on I4 in Tampa has it in the pump for 2.84 bulk. Would buying 3 to 4 gallons be considered bulk? I don't know. Dash tells me I'm less than half. Where do you guys get it.

They are buying in bulk and passing on the savings to you. The big class 8 trucks can take quite a bit when needed. Bulk DEF is about $1.65 - $1.75 a gallon delivered here in MI.

You taking 3-4 gallons at the pump is the same as taking 20-25 gallons of diesel. You pay for what you take out of the tank.

Not to bad of a retail price for your totes of DEF. Can you believe that I have one large farmer here in MI that had 2 x 5000 gallon tanks for DEF storage. They take full 5,000 gallon transports at a time. He said when my truck needs a little to just stop by. Guess that eliminates the hassle of messing with it at the warehouse.
