2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: DEFinitely Low

July 07, 2014

2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel

That's the DEF gauge, and as you can see, we're running low on the stuff. DEF is an acronym for Diesel Exhaust Fluid, which broadly, is used to help reduce emissions for the diesel power plant in our 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel.

At eight gallons, the DEF tank is plenty big and while DEF usage is dependent on the duty cycle, the average time between refills should be around 10,000 miles. With a tick over five thousand miles on our Ram, I'm wondering if the tank was full when we bought it.

Either way, it's DEFinitely something we need to look into. I don't think we can DEFer topping it off until the next service. That would be a DEFinite mistake.

I'm DEFinitely done.

Sorry.
