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.

  • Economical:
    A passenger vehicle requires 1.5–2.8 l AdBlue® per 1,000 km. The tank holds between 11 and 19 l – depending on model.
  • Easy to refill:
    Inquire with your Volkswagen Partner, use our refill containers or head to the dedicated dispensers at gas stations.
  • Controllable consumption:
    The consumption of AdBlue® depends hugely on your driving style. Drivers who hit the gas a little harder will have to refill more often.
  • Ready for nearly any temperature:
    An automatic heating system ensures that AdBlue® is at the right operating temperature. Important: Do not fill the AdBlue® tank with an anti-freeze agent or any other liquids.

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.
