Default DEF bottles Jag XE 20D

We are the new owners of a 2017 XE 20d. Does anyone know of an online source for DEF bottles that will fit the def filler on the XE 20d? I have seen such bottles on Ebay and such but they do not appear to fit the Jag.

I went to the local Jag dealer today and bought a DEF bottle. I was surprised to see it was filled with DEF. Cost: about $20 for one half gallon. I asked if the bottle is refillable and learned it is NOT! The parts department said some people said they cut off the bottle and use it as a means of getting DEF into the tank as a funnel?

Has anyone had experience with this? Its obvious Jag wants the poor dumb customer to take the car in for oil changes and also to fill the DEF tank while there at a relatively high cost for what, pig urine?

Ebay has a listing for DEF bottles priced lower however it appears they are also filled with DEF and not refillable? Is this correct?

I am thinking the whole DEF mandate is being used by the car makers as a way to make more money by selling the pre filled and unrefillable bottles to make more money. Any work arounds? I refuse to pay the dealer to put in pig urine when I am capable of doing it myself.

You can go to a truck stop with one of those red gasoline containers and fill it up with DEF. Last I checked the pump price is around $2.50 a gallon.
