Perfect timing to have a DEF fill discussion. Last time around went the full 13k miles with no low DEF (xxx miles to start) warning. We just got the warning this time with only 10k miles since it...

I'm guessing on this design they just went with a single larger active tank. With better MPG than the 335D and the new 10,000 mile oil change intervals, the 3 gallons should make it to the next oil...

Max fill is one reason. And if I understand correctly if you are close to no start, and you only fill the passive, it may take a while to fill the active to clear the no start. Also if you want to...

I hope everyone understands the issue with the video. The lower/active tank only holds about 1.5 gallons. Putting in 2.5 is overfilling by a gallon, which simply overflowed onto the floor. The...

If you fill with the source at nearly the same height as the fill port this will not happen. Using the 1/2 gallon fill bottle ensures this is the case. If say you put the big container on a step...

I know there can be an issue with overfilling the passive tank causing DEF to crystallize and plug the vent. While I have another year before I will fill myself my plan is to wait until I get down...
