    Got DEF???

    It appears there is a world-wide shortage of Urea which is the stuff DEF is made of. Many sources are predicting a shortage of DEF because of this. I am guessing this news will lead to a run on DEF supplies which will result in modern Diesel trucks not moving.

    I plan to go tomorrow and buying a few boxes of DEF. Unfortunately, DEF has a fairly short shelf life of 1-3 years depending on the source.

    What to Expect.

    From Australia

    Not only is DEF in short supply, but the DEF sensor supply is even worse, prompting fears of truck being taken out of service during a time when trucks themselves are in short supply.

    Man, and here I've been proud of supporting more Diesels all these years. My current one, the 3.0 TD Diesel Wrangler has eaten 4 gallons of DEF over three years. It's the only Jeep I owned that can do the Pony Express Trail up to Wendover on one tank of fuel, getting 33 MPG when offroad.

    Everything that has a petroleum or oil fuels based engine is under attack.

    Nope, the horses generate more than is needed.

    Yeah, I really liked that about my old Cummins Dodge. That engine was bulletproof.

    I miss my 01.

    I'm going tomorrow to shop and will pick up a jug, I've only gone through one since I left Nebraska pulling the fifth wheel. Check at the truck stops, most have it on the semi's fuel pumps.

    Yeah, the nice thing is DEF is sold at so many places at competitive prices. I usually order it off of Amazon if I need some.
