PetroChoice provides a complete line of DEF equipment, from drum pumps to complete bulk systems with island dispensers that can be easily integrated with your POS systems. Some of the first questions our customers typically ask include how much DEF they need to inventory and what equipment they should using for dispensing. The table below shows our recommended onsite DEF storage based on the number of SCR equipped trucks you will be running out of the local location.

Once you determine which kind of DEF storage you need, consider how your needs will change as your SCR fleet grows over time. PetroChoice will provide a program to completely manage your DEF solution from your first jug or drum all the way to full bulk handling solutions. We’ll plan with you as your fleet turns over and new SCR trucks are introduced to each location. PetroChoice’s approach to equipment makes sure that each of your locations has the optimum DEF equipment required to lower product costs, ensure driver productivity, and eliminate the obsolescence of drum and tote pumps as you migrate to a bulk system.
Note: Our experience has shown that almost every customer underestimates the volume needed and how quickly they go through product. We recommend that the customer over estimate the current needs and plan for the future when installing permanent tankage.
