AdBlue® quality.

To prevent contamination, it is essential that foreign materials do not come into contact with the solution.

Using contaminated AdBlue® can damage the SCR system and catalyst.

The AdBlue® trademark is currently owned by the German Association of the Automobile Industry (VDA), who ensure quality standards are maintained in accordance with ISO 22241 specifications.

Ensure that you only buy AdBlue® from a manufacturer with the registered trademark (®) on the product label and one who is registered with VDA.

Using CleanAirBlue® AdBlue® guarantees the correct specification required for use with your vehicle or engine.

How much AdBlue® will I use?

Average consumption of AdBlue® in a Euro 6 engine is approximately 4 to 6% of diesel use, so 4 to 6 litres of AdBlue® per 100 litres of fuel burnt.

How should I store AdBlue®?

AdBlue® has a shelf life of a minimum of 1 year if stored in a cool and dry location and away from direct sunlight.

The ambient temperature affects shelf life.
