AdBlue® 

AdBlue in a diesel Petrol Tank

To help with our environment, some Volkswagen TDI models are now fitted with AdBlue® advanced emissions control equipment that cleans exhaust gases to comply with the new EU6 exhaust emissions regulations.

AdBlue® is a non-toxic, non-flammable; biodegradable urea and water-based liquid additive that processes the gases in a car exhaust system to remove harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions.

How will I know if my car has AdBlue®?

AdBlue® is currently available on selected TDI models only; if you are unsure whether your car is affected please contact your local retailer. (link to find a retailer)

How will I know when my system needs a top up?

On average, a car consumes around 1.0 – 1.5 litres of Adblue every 620 miles, dependent on model and driving style and needs to be topped up at the required times.

You will be notified when a top up is required by the car’s driver information system.

Our technicians are fully trained to handle AdBlue® and we top up with specifically-designed adaptors to ensure there are no spillages that could damage your car. AdBlue® top-ups at Volkswagen are charged by the litre, so you only pay for the amount you need. For further technical information on AdBlue®, please click here
