Toyota models and AdBlue®
Land Cruisers and AdBlue®
The Land Cruiser is currently the only Toyota passenger vehicle to be equipped with AdBlue®. The 2015 model is equipped with a 2.8-l diesel engine. An SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system works by injecting AdBlue® into the exhaust gas to produce ammonia, which reacts with the nitrogen oxides (NOx) in the SCR catalyst to produce nitrogen and water. This system can eliminate up to 90% of NOx emissions, one of the main causes of air pollution. This helps vehicles to comply with the latest Euro VI standards established by the European Commission.
How often do I need to fill up with AdBlue® ?
A full tank of AdBlue® will last around 9000 miles (15,000 km). However, this depends on the road conditions and the driver’s driving style. Always check the warning system on the dashboard of your Toyota, which will let you know when AdBlue® levels are low. If your vehicle needs more AdBlue®, your dashboard will emit different warning signals. The first warning occurs when you have around 1440 miles (2400 km) of range left. You will receive a second, low AdBlue® level warning when you have around 480 miles (800 km) left. This will be an audible and visual signal indicating that the engine will not restart in case of failure. The third warning, if the tank is empty, indicates that the engine can no longer be restarted.
