EXCLUSIVE: Love's to double the number of truck stops offering bulk DEF

Christopher Goodfellow - 23 June 2011

Love's Travel Stops plans to almost double the number of its truck stops which offer bulk Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) at the pump by the end of 2011.

Jenny Love Meyer, Director of Communications at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores, told discoverDEF.com: "As more and more 2010 engines have come into the market the demand is starting to increase and that's driving our decisions. We've got about 70 locations that currently offer bulk DEF at the pump, we are going to have 125 by year's end."

DEF dispensing units will be supplied by Gilbraco, for the most part. Yara and Old World Industries will provide the DEF, although the product will not be branded at the pump.

Meyer added any new location is now being installed with the capability to offer DEF at every filling lane.

The total number of truck stops offering bulk DEF recently broke the 150 location mark and, at time of press, had reached 156.
