DEF and Idling
So my fleet manager for the company I work for, said he wants to get a 2013 F550 bucket truck, its got everything on it that we need, but I am a little concerned on whether the techs will keep up on the maintenance, esp keeping the DEF tank filled. Also I'm concerned that the DEF tank will drain a lot faster given that the truck is going to be idling a lot on the side of the road. What does everyone know about with the DEF and running out while idling? Also the truck is a demo with 1000 miles on it, so I'm a little concerned that there may already be some issues.
Thanks for any help.
