Australia had the DEF problem when imported supply was stopped, so now it is manufactured locally and no more problem. I am fortunate that my 2012 Cruze diesel never had the DEF tank and I have a full size spare tyre in that position.

I work for a major lubricants distributor in New York,there is a shortage of DEF.There are two reasons.The #1 reason is farmers are being forced in many states to use Urea as a fertilizer instead of other chemicals.#2 The war in Ukraine where 40% of the worlds Urea comes from.Urea is about 37% of DEF.
its always the overconfident ones that get it wrong, lol

So if DEF is not DEF than what else is it? I am curious to know.
Don't have a good answer other than additives/filler.
I received a refund from Peak for the Platinum DEF.
As I said, it is a known issue with the 2.8L in the Colorado/Canyons.
