Got the difference-( with your explanation) but it is still a mystery. Was there another service performed where someone might have introduced wrong fluid into the DEF tank. Some service facilities will do a "top up of fluids" while doing an oil change or tire rotation. Some type of fuel additive or booster that went down the wrong filler? Beyond my pay grade as I would have thought there would be an effect pretty soon after the introduction. Will step back and read to learn more but in the interim no one is going to mess with my tanks but me and I guess the DEF pump at the truck stop is out even though it is way less costly that the individual 2.5 gallon containers. I pretty much felt that there is not much difference from one type DEF to another.
Be sure to get whatever DTC codes they found, the old parts they replaced and the DEF they drained or at least a sample of it.
Let us know- something about this all just smells fishy....
I also read on another forum where a guy went through something similar with his diesel Ford pickup where they told him his DEF was bad and when it was finally tested with a high priced specialized testing instrument it was fine...
I'm still puzzled by how they said the DEF was fine at the injector nozzle but later said it was bad in the tank.
