FYI, just saw a 2.5 gal container of DEF at a WalMart. A little cheaper than NAPA, I think I saw an $11.37 price tag.

Actually its not. The minerals and other contaminants in urine will quickly destroy the AdBlue system.

It IS true that pee has urea in it - always has, always will. What is also NOT true about the post is that "some have said you can pee in the system in an emergency" You are probably correct that is would not be useful to do that. The concentration of urea in human urine is way short of the amount required by the AdBlue system as designed. We were BOTH right - and both wrong!

But wait, there's more: I was listening to Road Hog on Sirius radio the other day. There was discussion about a Canadian trucker who insisted on putting gasoline in his DEF tank. His reason - "The thing needs to run hotter"!! I didn't hear if he is still on the road or not.

Def is Def no matter where you buy it from. Truckstop, WalMart, AutoZone or dealer. All Def is the same.
