What is AdBlue®?
Some vehicle models are now fitted with AdBlue® advanced emissions control equipment that cleans exhaust gases to beyond current legislation levels.
AdBlue® is a non-toxic, non-flammable, biodegradable urea and water-based liquid additive that processes the gases in a car’s exhaust system to remove harmful nitrogen oxide emissions. AdBlue® may also offer a small fuel economy advantage by optimising the engine’s combustion process.
The AdBlue® solution is stored in a tank positioned near the car’s conventional fuel tank, accessed through a screw-cap usually found next to the car’s fuel filler nozzle. The system works by injecting minute amounts of the solution into the exhaust system when the engine is running.
Am I responsible for AdBlue®?
It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure AdBlue® is kept topped up and to pay any costs associated with doing so.
Days Fleet treat AdBlue® as a consumable, similar to fuel and does not form any part of a maintenance contract unless specifically agreed.
It is important that levels of AdBlue® are maintained as the vehicle will not start if the tank ever runs empty.
What happens at the end of my contract?
Take a look at our video which will explain everything you need to know.
