The reality is that sooner or later, if you have a truck fleet and you are responsible for managing your fuel needs, you will need to start thinking about DEF! We have set up a simple tool to help you take control and better prepare your DEF supply and fueling.

Let’s start with a brief introduction. A simple enough product, Diesel Exhaust Fluid is a combination of urea and de-ionized water. All trucks made in 2010 and after require DEF. The product is truly beneficial for the environment, as it works with diesel fuel to reduce harmful emissions during the fuel burning process. So now that you understand what DEF is, let’s help you estimate how much Diesel Exhaust Fluid you will need!

  1. Number of vehicles in your fleet requiring DEF
  2. Annual mileage per vehicle
  3. Average miles per gallon of those vehicles

And- abracadabra! You will see how much DEF you need so you can efficiently plan your purchases. Click here to try out our calculator!
