Pilot Flying J has opened the first DEF pump at a fuel island in
the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. The Saskatoon-based location
is only the sixth in Canada to supply DEF at the pump. All six are
operated by Pilot Flying
J. The truckstop brand dominates the North American DEF retail
market, with a total of 307 locations.
Pilot Flying J's Canadian truckstops have always charged
CAD$0.799/L (equivalent to US$2.99/G) for DEF, and the Saskatchewan
location is no exception. As reported by
DEF Tracker, this is more expensive than the U.S. average,
which peaked in June 2012, at US$2.81 per gallon.
The newly equipped location has five bulk DEF lanes and is
located at 3850 Idylwyld Drive North, Saskatoon, near Highway 12.
Previously, truck drivers would have faced a long drive to find DEF
at the pump, with the nearest location 385 miles away in
