Ricochet Fuel can supply you with Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) in several forms so we can provide the right solution for your company.
What is diesel exhaust fluid? DEF is required for medium to heavy-duty vehicles and construction vehicles with diesel engines produced after 2010. The vehicle is programmed to inject the DEF into the exhaust stream to meet emissions requirements. If the vehicle is allowed to run out of DEF, the engine performance will be reduced, and lower speeds are imposed.
Available at the pump with your CFN card at our Euless location as well as other designated locations 24/7.

FAQs – DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID
How Often Do You Have to Add Diesel Exhaust Fluid?
2.5 gallons of DEF will last approximately 800 miles on the road. That means, 1 gallon of DEF will last about 300 to 500 miles. You can figure, for every 50 gallons of diesel, you’ll need 1 gallon of DEF. One important note, make sure you don’t allow your DEF to go completely dry.
What Happens When You Run Out of Diesel Exhaust Fluid?
All new vehicles are equipped with gauges and/or lights to alert you when DEF is low. If DEF is not replaced, an emergency light will be triggered, and engine speed will be reduced to as little as five miles per hour.
To be prepared, it’s smart to carry a bottle in your truck, so you don’t get stuck driving slow on the shoulder of the highway. It’s also good to know that diesel exhaust fluid is nontoxic. So for you, that means once you have some on hand, you or your fleet’s drivers, can readily replace DEF, as needed.
