Contaminated DEF Problem

2011 F250 S/D (45,060) Miles All highway between NJ and Green Bay (1006 hrs)
I would like to post this information: Contaminated DEF Code:
I had a problem for the last 3 weeks. Please let others know.
I was accused of putting a petroleum product in the def tank. It as been removed and nothing was found. The Truck first said I had 200 miles to drive. then after a repair it happened again and said it wouldn't go over 55 MPH. Was repaired again. After they drove 130 miles it was given back. Another 15 miles were driven and a code said at next fill-up it would only Idle. On my way back it died and would only go 8 Miles an hour.

Although I have the means to buy a new diesel, this is exactly why I will never buy a new truck.
