Stop Wasting Money Filling up at Service Stations: Start Pumping DEF on Your Own, with Safe and User-Friendly DEF Pumps and AdBlue Tanks

If you drive a modern truck or large SUV that uses diesel fuel, then the chances are that you also have to fill up on DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) on a relatively regular basis. DEF—usually referred to as AdBlue in Australia—is a solution of urea and de-ionised water that reduces the nitrogen and oxide emissions from diesel vehicles. Vehicles with selective catalytic reduction systems (or SCR systems) utilise this new type of automotive fluid to make diesel vehicles less dangerous to the environment and human health.

Avoiding the Extra Expense of Diesel Vehicles

When you decided to purchase a diesel truck or SUV, you probably weighed the benefits of having a diesel vehicle against the added costs. On one hand, these vehicles are powerful, rugged and spacious. If you frequent work on construction sites, move heavy loads from one destination to the next or drive on more rugged terrain, then a diesel pickup truck might be the optimal vehicle choice for you. However, diesel trucks and SUVS do cost more to drive over time—not just because you have to fill up on AdBlue, but also because diesel fuel simply costs more than standard unleaded petrol.

What if there were a way that you could trim some of those extra expenses? A way to fill your DEF tank and keep in compliance with Australian laws without spending an arm and a leg on AdBlue?

Certainly, if you fill up on DEF at a service station, you are going to spend more money than you need to. You aren't just paying for the fluid when you use the service station. On the contrary, you are also paying for the pumping mechanism. Since AdBlue still isn't available at all service stations, there is still a pretty substantial markup at the pump.

The 'few and far between' nature of DEF pumps is another area of concern—particularly if you live in a sparsely populated rural area. What if you can't find a station that offers AdBlue at the pump when you need it? What if you can find those stations when you are travelling, but don't have one near where you live?
