troverman I fill mine at the pump...never had an issue with spillage. It is absolutely the best way to do it, get it exactly full every time with none left over, freshest and cheapest.

Learjet Tips for using the pump DEF:

1 - don't put the nozzle all the way in....leave it about 1" from bottoming out...so the air can come out....or you will splash.

2 - you have to barely open the flow up...I repeat slowly open the flow of the nozzle and do not go wide open.

If you follow 1 and 2 you will be a happy DEF pumper

Do not reuse the DEF containers, that's where the problems start.
I can see the logic in that statement. I've personally never done it.

I'm using pump DEF at the local Pilot in my work truck. My pickup, the two times I added DEF, I dumped in one 2.5 gallon jug. I'm not going to fill it.

Some folks have reported people filling the empty jug with water and returning it to customer service only to have it re-stocked back on the shelf.
That return scam also applies to oil containers, I had broken seals when I opened some expensive synthetic gear lube years ago.
Scammer refills with stuff that looks like oil and returns it for a refund.

Walker111 I've had terrible experiences with the pump DEF, never has it not ran all over the side of my truck. Its cheaper and easier to fill the tank, but the mess is ridiculous.

I'm running Super Tech at the moment from Wally World.
