Diesel engines are now required to meet tough NOx standards to help control air pollution. The preferred method involves injecting a high purity fluid called Diesel Exhaust Fluid (AdBlue™) into the exhaust system. AdBlue™ works seamlessly with absolutely no effect on the performance of your engine - your driving experience will remain as enjoyable and as efficient as ever.
When your vehicle is utilising AdBlue™, the Nitrogen Oxide produced by your diesel engine will be converted into nitrogen and steam. This considerably reduces the emissions of harmful Nitrogen Oxides, a considerable source of atmospheric pollution.
AdBlue™ is a harmless substance, and very easy to use. It is not a fuel, nor a fuel additive - it is a simple but eff ective high purity urea solution. It must be used in a dedicated tank on your vehicle, and refi lled when required. It is essential that you refi ll prior to depletion, as your vehicle will not run without it.
You can refill your AdBlue™ yourself, although we recommend that you ask your Toyota Dealer / Authorised Repairer. Here is a step by step guide for refilling your AdBlue™
It's important not to use any urea solution other than AdBlue™.
Refill AdBlue™ slowly so that it does not spill. Do not remove the bottle until it is empty.
When using AdBlue™ there are some clear rules that should be followed. The vehicle will not start if the AdBlue™ level is too low.
Observe the following precautions. Failure to do so may result in damage to the vehicle parts, paint, etc.
Observe the following precautions. Failure to do so may result in damage to vehicle parts, paint, etc., and changes in the chemical compounds of AdBlue™ may cause unpleasant odors.
