TA installs its thousandth on-island bulk Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) dispenser

Niels Tholen - 26 March 2013

TravelCenters of America has announced the installation of its thousandth bulk on-island Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) dispenser which pumps both diesel fuel and DEF, enabling drivers to authorize diesel and DEF transactions from the same dispenser simultaneously.

Tom O'Brien, president and CEO of TravelCenters of America, said: "Our installation of on-island DEF dispensers not only uses the latest, most efficient dispensing equipment available, we also took the time to eliminate product and equipment failure risk for drivers by using underground storage and piping. In addition, our DEF installations were completed hand-in-hand with the installation of new, higher-speed diesel dispensers; our investment in these technologies [totaled] about $100 million."

The company, which operates TA and Petro Stopping Centers, anticipates all of its locations will offer on-island bulk DEF by the end of May 2013, with the exception of two sites where local planning regulation has delayed completion of planned installations.
