    I have this gig with Loves hauling their DEF only and nothing else, out of Atlanta. We load In Atlanta and deliver to the surrounding stores.

    I don't have any tanker experience, so I will be training for a couple weeks.

    Any advice is what I need. Training, what to expect, routines that make you more efficient, and what to look out for.

    I think fuel is probably easier then say petroleum,the hose isn't very heavy.

    I know one Loves driver said that hunting for fuel at the different racks, would be a reason the def is easier. Idk how the def is loaded tho
