    700 miles in my truck is about 2.3 gal of DEF, my gauge doesn't move until almost 5 gals have been used; tank holds 15.

    If you're real curious, put DEF in and see how much it takes.

    Could be inaccurate gauge. I'd try putting in some DEF in there as suggested and see if it really is full.

    The lights represent 25% of a tank. Four green lights is from 76-100%. Three lights from 51-75%.
    Yellow light comes on at 10%, red you are out.
    In the next day or so you should see it change.
    The amount of DEF used is related to your fuel economy.
     
    Semination and mhyn Thank this.

    Did you buy this truck from a reputable Dealer or private seller? Like others have said you may just need to put more miles on for it to start registering. If you find out it is deleted you may have recourse on the seller. Let us know either way. Good luck
     
    Semination Thanks this.
