Ditto on Walmart 2.5 gallon for less than 8 bucks.

For me it's most convenient, we seem to always stop at a Walmart along the trip somewhere, and that allows me to actually fill the tank when it's easiest for me at the CG. Not when I'm at the pumps and trying to get back on the road.

I have been to many truck stops with no one waiting. I am a trucker would NEVER block someone who need to fuel in a different direction and I don't think I am the only nice driver on the road
As a truck driver too, I agree. Plenty of times not many trucks. Just go in backwards. Do NOT do it when they are really busy.

I have seen plenty of time when I pulled in and thought they were not busy, but when I put my 40 or 50 gallons in trucks were lined up. Now what do you do? I guess I don't want to cause any problems and just follow the rules.

I bought a permanent 2-1/2 gallon jug designed specifically for DEF and carry that. No problem getting DEF at the pump and carrying it around to fill, even two or three times. In the end, even doing that I take less time at the pump than a typical trucker.

Now THAT will get you a lot of smiles and thumbs ups at a busy truck stop! Good grief...

You're kidding, right? I sure hope so. We're talking about saving maybe $3 (three dollars) per year for a lot more convenience.

Lol

Congratulations, you just saved $1.18 for 2.5 gallons . You bought the magnet, though, and had considerably more inconvenience. At 7 mpg $1.18 will take you 3 1/2 miles down the road at $2.36 per gallon! LoL. Keep it in perspective .

Cheers!

I carry 2 one gallon containers. While I'm filling with diesel, I get the containers out of my bay, pour the DEF into the DEF tank and then when I'm done with the diesel fill, I refill the 2 containers at the DEF pump and put them back in the bay awaiting our next stop to refill.
What's with the magnet ? I have never come across a DEF pump that would not work with my non-magnetic plastic gallon containers.

DEF is used in all diesel engines, not just Cummins. Navistar built non def engines for several years, but they couldn't comply with the rules so they use DEF now also.

Problem getting DEF on road

It's not convenient to pull into the fuel lane in a reverse direction and we have found that you need to buy fuel first before using the DEF dispenser, so we can't get it from the adjacent pump. We use a 6 gal. Plastic jerry can with a Terapump TRFA01with auto shut-off to pump the DEF into the holding tank.

Sounds like a good reason to get a new MH to me.
Many of the new models fill from both sides, mine does.
