To enhance convenience and efficiency for our customers, Marshall Fuels equipped each fuel pump lane with a DEF fluid dispenser. This offers several benefits for truck fleet operators and single owners/operators when it comes to refuelling diesel and filling DEF.
Maximizing Convenience: How DEF Fluid Dispensers at Every Fuel Pump Lane Simplify Refuelling
In recent years, the demand for diesel-powered vehicles has increased significantly, especially in the commercial and transportation sectors. Diesel engines offer greater fuel efficiency and torque, making them ideal for heavy-duty applications. However, these engines require Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) to meet emission standards. To enhance convenience and efficiency, Marshall Fuels equipped each fuel pump lane with a DEF fluid dispenser offering several benefits for truck fleet operators and single owners and operators.
In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of DEF fluid dispensers and how they streamline efficiency, cost control, and customer experience. Here are some of the key advantages of having a Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) fluid dispenser at each fuel pump lane.
#1 A Streamlined Refuelling Process: Convenience and Time Savings
Having a DEF fluid dispenser at each fuel pump lane eliminates the need for drivers to navigate a separate area or queue, saving time and effort. With this convenience, refuelling diesel and filling DEF can be done simultaneously, improving the overall refuelling process and reducing waiting times.
Marshall Fuels has multi-lanes which expedite truck traffic and ensure a more efficient refuelling process, further reducing downtime and improving fleet productivity.
#2 Reducing the Risk of Contamination
DEF fluid is highly sensitive to contaminants, such as dirt, dust, and improper handling. When a separate dispenser is used, there is a higher chance of contamination during transfer or accidental spillage. Contamination of DEF can lead to malfunctions in the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system, affecting emission control performance.
Having a dedicated DEF dispenser at each fuel pump lane reduces the risk of cross-contamination, as drivers can dispense DEF directly into their trucks. Integrating the DEF dispenser into the fuel pump lane minimizes the risk of contamination, ensuring a cleaner and more reliable supply of DEF fluid.
#3 Enhanced User Experience and Satisfaction
Finding the right DEF fluid dispenser can be confusing and time-consuming. By having DEF dispensers conveniently located at each fuel pump lane, drivers can easily identify and access the dispenser they need enhancing the overall customer experience.
At Marshall Fuels, we’ve noticed that our customers appreciate the convenience of refuelling both diesel and DEF in one location, avoiding the need for separate trips or extra steps. This provides a more user-friendly and efficient refuelling experience for our customers.
#4 Cost Control, Accurate Dispensing, and Availability
Individual DEF fluid dispensers at each fuel pump lane incorporate precise measurement systems, ensuring accurate dispensing of DEF. This eliminates overfilling or spillage, preventing unnecessary product waste and associated costs.
Sometimes, DEF dispensers can run out of stock or malfunction, causing inconvenience for truck fleet operators and single owners and operators. By equipping each fuel pump lane with a DEF dispenser, Marshall Fuels can ensure a more consistent supply of DEF fluid. This availability contributes to a smoother and uninterrupted refuelling experience, minimizing potential delays.
#5 Canadian Emission Standards Compliance
DEF fluid plays a crucial role in reducing harmful emissions from diesel engines by converting nitrogen oxides (NOx) into harmless nitrogen and water vapour. To comply with federal emission standards, diesel trucks are equipped with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems that require a steady supply of DEF fluid.
By providing DEF dispensers at each fuel pump lane, Marshall Fuels is demonstrating our commitment to compliance with environmental regulations. This proactive approach ensures our customers have convenient access to DEF, which encourages proper usage and reduces the likelihood of non-compliance.
