Data transmits to a host database which allows remote viewing and fuel management in real time. These solutions help save time and money for us and our customers.

DEF should be replaced regularly and has a shelf-life of about two years. Depending on the efficiency of the engine, DEF will need to be replaced accordingly. Exposure to sunlight and high temperatures also factor in how long DEF lasts. Luckily, when you buy DEF, it’ll have an expiration date labeled. If you go past this date, you’ll have performance issues and maintenance problems like:

  • Increased DEF usage in equipment
