DEF Prices Climb for Second Straight Month

LONDON, UK — Average prices for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) in both the U.S. and Canada increased for the second month in a row, after dropping steadily over the last six months, according to UK-based Integer Research, a specialist provider of research, data, analysis and consultancy services.

Canadian bulk DEF prices increased in February 2014 for the third consecutive month, with the average price for full truckload, less-than-truckload deliveries and tote refills reaching $0.48 per liter, $0.58 per liter and $0.61 per liter respectively. 

In comparison, last month, LTL cost $0.54 per liter and tote refills were $0.56 per liter.

The national DEF truckstop average price slightly increased by one cent to $2.80 per gallon in the US, but in Canada, prices remained unchanged at $0.80 per liter – an average maintained since October 2011. 

DEF is used in diesel engines featuring selective catalytic reduction technology, used by most manufacturers beginning with the 2010 model year, to meet U.S. emissions requirements.

The DEF Tracker, launched in 2011 by Integer Research, covers 21 regional hubs in the U.S. and three hubs in Canada: Calgary, AB, Montreal, QC and Toronto, ON.
