    So with a 23 gallon def tank and getting 262 miles a gallon you drive over 6000 miles a week? Lol.... You put def in your truck once a week but you're not completely out when you do, right? You are using between 10 to 15 gallons a week, which is what myself and atruckr said.
    Do you agree?

    Yes, it is never completely empty. 10-15 gallons a week sounds about right. I do not have a 23 gallon tank. I have a 16 gallon tank.

    Interesting .. Must be the KW (if i remember correctly you have a KW chickenwing??) put smaller Def tank on their trucks. Makes sense! They probably distribute weight for use in other areas of the truck. Not much difference but I know my truck is at lease a 23 gallon.. It might even be a 25g. I usually use about 15 gallons a week.. give or take!

    Yea, i have a kw. Dont think they could have put a bigger tank on it. I am 12k on the steers at all times. The tank is in front of the left side fuel tank.

    Up at 4 am for the 171 miles to Savannah for an easy D/H. Then drove 30 miles to a three hour live load, won't be going back there again! Then drove 270 miles to about 30 miles west of Atlanta on I-20. Got a live unload at 9 am tmrw about 8 miles from here. Parked at the Pilot on exit 19.
    Rainy and humid. Gonna go talk to the Goodyear here about fixing my clearance light and possibly a lube job.
    Take care......

    Well, no love on the clearance light. It's an led and they don't have one. But I did get the tractor lubed for $33.00.
