Peak DEF .... good value

Just picked up 2 x 2.5 Gallon Peak brand DEF at O'Reilly's auto parts for $10 each... not bad at all, especially when you consider the stealer wanted $12 for a single gallon of GM branded stuff.... and this came with a nifty screw on pour spout..

here's the spec sheet...

depends on driving habits... but they say 5000 miles for 5 gallons.... so 1 gallon / 1000 miles... but I'd guess with all the idling around and traffic, I'm closer to 1/500.. So we're basically talking about $4-$5 per gallon divided by up to 1000 miles.

Thats not bad at all. Plus the fuel economy advantage over the LMM takes some of the cost of DEF away.
