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...

Please refresh my memory, what is your average consumption?

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.

btw, nice VW... welcome to the German diesel owners club!
Thank you! I have more pictures of it in my profile albums if you want to see. Loving the 45MPG!
