Please ensure that you comply with the legislation of your country.

It is important to remember that failure to respect regulations in force could lead to legal action being taken against the vehicle owner.

Operating principle

The reagent is intended for diesel engines fitted with the SCR (selective catalytic reduction) system.

Using the reagent reduces the quantity of nitrogen oxides in exhaust gases.

Reagent consumption in real time depends on vehicle usage conditions, the equipment fitted, and driving style.

Reagent quality

Use only reagents which conform to standard ISO 22241 and in accordance with the mark on the tank filler cap.

Topping up

Useful capacity of fuel tank: 4.4 gal (20 litres) or 6.2 gal (28.2 litres) approximately (depending on the vehicle).

Ignition off, open the front passenger door to open the cover 2. Unscrew the cap 1.

Note: Ammonium hydroxide vapour may escape from the cap opening when the tank temperature is high.

Vehicle fitted with the Stop and Start function

To fill up with reagent, the engine must be stopped (and not put on standby): you MUST stop the engine STOPPING, STARTING THE ENGINE.

If the “xxxKM failure Top up AdBlue” message appears, fill the reagent tank and refer to the filling instructions.

Risk of immobilisation of the vehicle.

Filler cap: this is specific.

If you have to replace it, make sure it is identical to the original cap. Contact an approved Dealer. Do not wash the filler area with a high pressure washer.

Precautions for use

The tank can be filled at the pump. In other cases, it is essential to read the information shown on the reagent container (e.g. the can or bottle).

When filling, handle the reagent carefully. They can damage clothes, shoes, bodywork components etc.

If the reagent overflows, or contaminates any paintwork, clean the affected area quickly with plenty of cold water and a soft cloth.

Note: If the reagent crystallises, use a soft sponge.

In extreme cold weather conditions

In frosty conditions, fill the reagent tank as soon as the warning light and the “TOP UP AdBlue before 1500 km” message, or, depending on the vehicle, the “TOP UP AdBlue before 1200 km” message is displayed on the instrument panel.

Special cases

The reagent fluid freezes below about -10°C.

In these conditions, do not attempt filling when the fluid is frozen. In the event of needing to top up or fill the tank with reagent ( on), park the vehicle in a hotter location if possible so that the reagent becomes liquid again. Otherwise, have a qualified professional top up or fill up with reagent fluid.

The reagent must not come into contact with eyes or skin. If it does, wash the affected area with plenty of cold water. If necessary, consult a doctor.

After filling the reagent tank, check that the cap and cover are closed, start the engine and WAIT 10 seconds with the vehicle stationary, engine running, before setting off again.

If this operation is not carried out, the filling of the tank will not be taken into account automatically until after several dozens of minutes of driving.

The message “--- TOP UP AdBlue” and/or the warning lights will continue to appear until the filling has been registered by the system.

No work whatsoever is permitted on any part of the system. To prevent damage, only qualified personnel from our network may work on the system.
