Christopher Goodfellow - 3 May 2012
A number of major Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) manufacturers and distributors have announced price increases effective at the start of May in response to rising raw material costs, according to DEF Tracker.
This included KOST USA, which has published an announcement on its website.
Prior to the implementation date, slight increases were recorded in the DEF price of tote and bulk supply, although the national U.S. DEF pump price remained at $2.74/G between March and April, 2012.
The DEF pump network continues to expand, with 26 new truck stops adding bulk facilities over the same period.
At the time of press, discoverDEF.com listed 477 North American DEF pump locations, including five in Canada, and 6,519 retail locations offering packaged DEF.
