Love’s Travel Stops expands Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) pump network to over 200 locations

Lucy Terry - 2 January 2013

The nationwide truck stop brand Love's Travel Stops now supplies Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) at the pump at 203 locations. Stores in Marshall, MI, and Oakdale, WI, are the most recent additions to the network.

The truck stop brand supplies DEF at the pump in locations across the U.S., and is second only to Pilot Flying J which leads in the retail DEF market. Love's charges $2.69 per gallon for DEF at every location. This is below the average U.S. price for December of $2.79, as reported in DEF Tracker.

While Love's is a major player in the market, TA Travel Centers continues to install DEF pumps at a remarkably fast rate and now operates DEF pumps at the fuel island at 194 locations. In December 2012, 31 TA or Petro locations were brought online.

The retail DEF network is also developing at a fast rate through smaller truck stop networks. discoverDEF.com added fourteen WilcoHess locations with pumps recently, located in the south-eastern U.S., in particular North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

Despite passing the 200 location mark, Love's did not meet its aim of offering bulk DEF at all locations by the end of 2012.
