Let BMW know if you find out...

Here is a picture of d.... EF gone wrong. Seriously, why can't BMW give the dealer a proper refill tool? And, why can't the dealer clean my car after they throw up on it?

But unless you have an unusually good source, think that runs like $150. The blue adapter part (without the hose) looks just like what's on top of the $10 1/2 gallon bottle.

+1 KeithS.

I bought a 1/2gal DEF from M-B for $8.99 and empty it into my vehicle.
Then cut the base of the filler neck to detach it from the 1/2gal bottle.
Now I can buy bulk DEF and refill the 1/2gal bottle and refill my diesel vehicles without any spillage and save a lot of $$ rather than pay the dealers.

It is but you can dispense larger volumes without the hassle of having to transfer into smaller container. $150 isn't too bad when you think about it because you'll either sell it with the car or keep in when you buy another diesel.
