Pilot Flying J Makes Investment in DEF Pumps
March 19, 2013
Pilot Flying J now offers diesel exhaust fluid at the pump at 3,000 fuel lanes across the U.S.
Pilot Flying J first started offering DEF at the pump in 2009. The company has now invested more than $165 million in expanding its network of DEF at the pump.
Pilot Flying J’s 3,000 lanes offering DEF at the pump stretch across nearly 400 locations in 42 states and four Canadian provinces.
Pilot Flying J plans to have DEF at the pump available at all diesel lanes by the fall of 2013.
DEF is a nontoxic solution used in vehicles with Selective Catalytic Reduction systems to reduce levels of NOx emissions. Diesel engines purchased after Jan. 1, 2010, require the use of DEF in vehicles using SCR technology to reduce emissions and meet the Environmental Protection Agency 2010 tailpipe standards.
DEF at the pump allows drivers to dispense the fluid conveniently from the fuel island into the DEF tank of their truck or vehicle. In addition to the convenience of DEF at the pump, all Pilot Flying J locations sell DEF in one-gallon and 2.5-gallon containers.
