Iím a truck driver and Iíve never had to fill up with the ďcubesĒ. Iím guessing the truck stop that had a broken pump was some small establishment. Every main truck stop (pilot, flying j, t/a, petro, loves) should have bulk DEF at every pump.

It's a Pilot, again its the only shop in town other than a tourist trap actually on 93.

They only have one DEF pump island serving two lanes, of a 8 lane filling station. In about 7K miles more we'll prob need more DEF and I'll give them a call to see if they fixed the pump.

DEF pumps are becoming far more common..
The small gas station across the street from the QURIK VW dealer in Manchester (by the mall of NH) has a Def pump on the 2 pump diesel truck island...
Also the Irving just over the Maine state line in Kittery has had a pump for years...and they are becoming far more common than even 5 years ago as the older pre 2011-2013 (the years most trucks switched) trucks are getting phased out, even in the box truck fleets where a 10 year life is common.
One tip..
When you go to use one of the pumps, don't open the pump up with a full pull off the handle...let it dribble in over 2-3 minutes...heck you might need a funnel and a rag in some cases...some claimed the "water hammer" effect would dammage the tank...but if you fill slowly, no issues.

I saw the signs for that Sunoco but never stopped, I'll keep that in mind next time. Kinda makes sense they'd have it seeing the heavy truck dealer is across the street.

The other place I've paid at the pump was at the TA in Greenland, conveniently i had to head over there for work and tossed in my jugs.
