Technology in the tank
Volkswagen models with AdBlue®
In addition to their low NOx emissions, AdBlue® models can be recognised by the separate filler necks. Depending on the model, this is located either next to the diesel filler neck, in the luggage compartment or the engine compartment – as a operating fluid, AdBlue® has to be filled separately. We have pulled together a number of tips on topping up with AdBlue® here.
Warning lamps: refill AdBlue®
Depending on your driving style and the model, your Volkswagen consumes an average of 1.5–2.8 l of AdBlue® per 1,000 km. A warning signal will indicate when it’s time to refill – both 2,400 km and 1,000 km in advance.
