Default Diesel Exhaust Fluid Nightmare

Just a heads up guys anyone running trucks with the diesel exhaust fluid. I read a technical service bulletin from ford that if you accidentally put def in your diesel fuel it will cause fuel system damage and will not be covered under warranty, just a heads up.

An international with a maxxforce 13 engine put 6 gal of def in his 200 gal fuel tank and drove a couple hundred miles. It is an easy 15 to 20 grand repair if there is no cylinder damage.

ford put the fill location for the def right next to the fill location for fuel. it makes it easy to make that mistake, poorly thought out design. my duramax has the fill location under the hood, it may not be as convienant but you likeky won't make the mistake of putting it in the wrong tank.
