MacEwen Petroleum adds its first bulk Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) pumps at a truck stop in Canada

Niels Tholen - 21 February 2013

MacEwen Petroleum has added bulk Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) at its first truck stop location, near Dunvegan, Ontario. The Highland Esso truck stop on Highway 417 is the first on the route to offer the service, with two filling lanes offering bulk DEF at the pump.

Peter MacEwen, General Manager for Commercial Fuels and Specialty Chemicals at MacEwen Petroleum, told "MacEwen looks forward to providing current and new customers with the only bulk DEF on Highway 417 connecting Ottawa to Montreal. We plan to expand bulk DEF to other MacEwen Cardlock locations in the near future."

The MacEwen location will charge CAD$0.79 per liter for DEF.

In January 2013, there were 13 Canadian truck stops offering bulk DEF at the pump, each priced at $0.79 per liter, according to DEF Tracker. In addition to MacEwen's investment in Ontario, Pilot Flying J recently added bulk DEF pumps at two locations in Alberta - the first in the province.
