A bottle of AdBlue®: easy to refill
Fewer emissions with little effort

AdBlue® is an odourless urea solution. It reduces harmful nitrogen oxides in diesel vehicle emissions. What do you have to do? Simply refill AdBlue® after a few thousand kilometres and enjoy the benefits.

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.

Yellow VW warning light: AdBlue® must be refilled

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.
