Volkswagen models and AdBlue®

Volkswagen wants to fit all its new diesel models with AdBlue® tanks following the scandal uncovered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency

The majority of new Volkswagen models are equipped with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology, which uses the additive AdBlue® to purify exhaust gases. AdBlue®. Unlike fuel, this liquid is not injected into the engine, but directly into a specially modified part of the vehicle exhaust. A reaction occurs before the gas flow is released, which eliminates most of the resulting nitrogen oxides. The main Volkswagen models (Passat, Touareg etc.) are already equipped with AdBlue® tanks.

Several models are equipped with SCR technology: Passat, Passat Estate, Tiguan, Touran, Sharan, Touareg. The size of the AdBlue® tank in the diesel cars varies depending on the model. Many factors such as annual mileage, type of travel, driving style and environmental conditions can affect the quantity of AdBlue® consumed. A passenger car consumes approximately 1.5 litres of AdBlue® every 60 miles (100 km).

How will I know when I need to fill up my AdBlue® tank?

A series of warnings will be given via the driver information system, accompanied by messages displayed on the dashboard. The first message is displayed when the remaining range is approximately 1440 miles (2400 km) and then every 60 miles (100 km) until the range reaches 480 miles (800 km). The warning turns orange. This warning is repeated every 30 miles (50 km) and is accompanied by an audible signal. If these warnings are not acted upon, the warning will turn red. This indicates that the car will not restart once it has been switched off. You will then need to completely refill the tank in order to return the electronic system to full working order. Additional information is available in the vehicle manual and on the website infodiesel.fr.
