What is AdBlue?
AdBlue is a clear liquid active cleansing agent added to the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system in your Volkswagen TDI Clean Diesel to help it further reduce NOx emissions. Proper maintenance of the SCR system ensures optimal performance of the TDI Clean Diesel engine—producing ultra low emissions without compromising performance.
Is it safe?
Yes. AdBlue is completely safe when handled by the maintenance team at your dealership although it can be potentially corrosive to the exterior paint or interior materials after prolonged exposure. For this reason the bottle has been specially designed to make it virtually impossible to spill AdBlue during refill.
How do I know if I am running low?
A warning light will first appear advising you to “Please refill AdBlue!” when you have approximately 2,400 km of driving capacity remaining. You should schedule a visit with us soon. A second warning will appear when you have 1,000 km capacity left.* At this point you should avoid making a long journey until your dealer has refilled the tank with AdBlue.
How do I fill it up?
Autobahn Autohaus can top up your TDI Clean Diesel engine with AdBlue with every scheduled maintenance visit. We recommend doing this every 15,000 km.
