Protect the environment with AdBlue® at NWF Fuels

What Is AdBlue?

AdBlue is a trademarked brand name for Diesel Exhaust Fluid; a solution used in Selective Catalytic Reduction systems of modern diesel engines. A colourless liquid mixture of urea and water, it’s an exhaust fluid stored completely separate to your vehicle’s fuel. When diesel fuel is burned by the engine, AdBlue is injected into the SCR to convert nitrogen oxide into harmless nitrogen, water vapour and carbon dioxide.





How To Know If You Need AdBlue

If you have bought a new diesel vehicle in the last few years, it’s highly likely that it uses AdBlue. To find out if this includes your vehicle, have a look under the fuel cap cover; if there’s a smaller, second cap which is blue or black in colour next to your main fuel cap, then you will need AdBlue.

This system has been developed to help reduce air pollution and to meet Euro VI emissions legislation. AdBlue has a very important role to play in the future of diesel vehicles; whether that’s road vehicles, construction machinery, agricultural tractors, boats or static machinery such as generators and pumps.

How Much AdBlue Do I Need?

How much AdBlue you need depends on the type and size of vehicle, how often it’s used and your load; so always check your manual or with the manufacturer.

Your AdBlue should last for a few tanks of diesel, as only a small amount is injected into your exhaust system compared to the amount of fuel. After a short period of use, you should be able to estimate when you might need an AdBlue top-up. It is worth remembering if you run low on AdBlue, your engine may stop working as most vehicles require a minimum amount before the engine will function again.
