    For those with trucks that require DEF, how are you managing / storing your fluid?

    You should never have to haul any with you. They use very little and give you plenty of warning when needed.

    I just picked up a 55 gal drum. Buying the 2.5 gal jugs was starting to become a nuisance.

    You must be putting on a lot more miles then we do. We have 2 trucks that use it and its not that big a deal buying those 2 1/2 gal containers every 1500 miles or so. But I didn't know it came in 55 gal drums I can see us trying that when we add a few more of these to the fleet.

    I don't use it, but the other day at one of the fuel stations I noticed there was a dispenser for it. They just put it in about a month ago. It has a little nozzle and you just pump it like the other fuels. I don't know about cost because this is at a fleet fueling station and they do not display prices.
