Adblue

Post by Tojo136 » Thu Jun 15, 2017 9:28 am

Have any of us Dervites had to top up Adblue yet, or had any issues with Adblue warnings?

Yep. Warning at 1500miles left, then everytime you start the car until you top up. It's AdBlue, it's the same everywhere as long as it meets the standards. Paid £14 for 10l in Halfords and that will fill the tank on the Kodiaq.

Every 5000miles. 'Only' a small tank on the VW group cars.

My Superb will do about 9K between fill ups.

Find a petrol station that has adblue pumps (they will be by the HGV pumps) as it is FAR cheaper (69.9p per litre IIRC in Kent)

No, the filler is next to the fuel cap, so easy enough to fill up yourself.

They'll fill it but prob charge twice what you can get it for.
That's interesting about it being on tap at lorry services. I do like a bargain. Hence why I'm getting a Kodiaq.

I've been doing this for the last 3 years on my A6 ultra before getting the Kodiaq.

I've been buying ad-blue in 15 litre bottles from the same seller on eBay for years, easy to do yourself and a lot cheaper then Audi or garage prices.

Just check the description number for conformity.
