TravelCenters of America has invested in combined diesel and Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) pump dispensers at the forecourt. Demand for new bulk DEF installations and the strategic location of outlets led to the decision to install the new 1+1 pumping systems at Amarillo, TX and Hammond, LA, according to a company spokesperson.
The pumping equipment, supplied by Gilbarco as part of their Encore Diesel Exhaust Fluid range, allows users to refuel diesel and DEF simultaneously, and pay for both products in the same transaction. At the time of writing, DEF was selling at $3.07 per gallon at the Amarillo travel center, and at the Petro branded location at Hammond, DEF was retailing at $2.83 per gallon.
TravelCenters of America now has seven locations equipped with bulk DEF pumps, of which four can be found at Petro branded stopping centers.
