AdBlue Technology is now present in the majority of TDI (diesel) models in the Volkswagen range. AdBlue helps to protect the environment by cleaning exhaust gases which also means that vehicles comply with the new EU6 exhaust emissions regulations.
AdBlue is a non-toxic,non-flammable; bio-degradable urea and water based liquid based additive that processes the gases in a car exhaust system to remove harmful nitrogen oxide emissions. The AdBlue solution is stored in a tank positioned next to the vehicles conventional fuel tank. This is normally accessed via a cap in the rear of the vehicle, however the positioning may vary depending on model. The system works by injecting minute amounts of the solution in the exhaust system when the engine is running. The chemicals in AdBlue help break down the polluting chemicals into harmless water vapour and nitrogen gas.
The rate of consumption of AdBlue can vary depending on driving conditions, driving style, journey types, and environmental conditions. However most passenger vehicles will only consume approximately 1.5 Litres every 1000km.
A light will appear on your Dashboard when the AdBlue tank needs replenishing. It is important to keep in mind that the vehicle will not start when the AdBlue tank is empty.
