    .....I know those prices of fuel are exaggerated, but was using round numbers for easy of comparison....haha....I think it's closer to $ 0.50 difference per gallon right now.

    Plus don't forget to add in that you have to fill up with DEF every few tanks. It's just not looking beneficial in the big picture to us, that's why we have mostly gas.

    Availability isn't really an issue, if it did become one I would go back to buying bulk on road like we do with our off road fuel.

    Pricing is a good point, usually hovers around 40 cents of each other, but I haven't really considered the added cost of DEF which should be factored in.

    Another question I have, we had to switch to high test in our handhelds and stander because they would run like garbage otherwise. Is that the same with trucks, or do you guys just run regular in them?
