Banshee365: FWIW the AdBlue level in VCDS is actually a ghost value if you will. It doesn't mean anything and doesn't change. The level sensor in the NMS Passat only knows when it's getting to low to set the warning. It doesn't know or care above that. On some models like the Touareg this value is actually accurate.
Amei Adams: Thanks for the video. It saved me from going to the dealer again. I got 5 gallons of Peak Blue DEF for less than 28 dollars and had no problem using the hose included to fill up the tank on my 2010 Audi Q7. Those Kruse bottle are a neat idea though not necessary on my vehicle with the fill tube right next to the diesel fill tube.
Rick Chan: So, fill this one for each 10k miles?
Daniel Lona: How many bottles will it take to refill for a 2014 TDI Passat at 20k miles.
Owrang Moshtael: It already is in the UK VW's. MY VW CC has it.
Nicole Green: Is there a brand specific to car brands or does adblue work for any diesel that needs it?
Mick Taylor: So after cutting the Ad Blue bottle to make a funnel is there any way to make sure I do not fill the tank and end up having to unscreww the funnel when it may be full of fluid. That VCDS is about a hundered bucks so I would rather just try to figure a way to not end up trying to unscrew a full funnel.
tiptop0: Knew it was only a matter of time before pigs piss made it into cars. Reduced emissions by pumping urine into your exhaust
Carl Favorito: JUST took delivery of my new Passat TDI 2014. What does the warning light look like when the diesel exhaust fluid is running low?
Matias Myntti: okay now, AdBlue i do know exist for trucks with euro5 and euro6 engines, but i never heard of AdBlue in regular/personal cars
superkunk2: who ever thought of this, (def) didn't live in northern states. My wife was stuck in -5 temperatures, I had to go get her this fluid was frozen solid in the tank.. I could get my truck to move only 5 mph. I called the dealer he said let it idle longer so the heating element could melt it better. 1 hour and 45 minutes I was able to get her. They need to do something about this cause the manual says no prolong idling. Now what? By the way, its going down to -20 without wind chill tonight. check weather for Chicago on this date 1/28/14
Jack Jones: I have a VW Sharan 2.0TDI which I've had for 2.5 years and it requires Adblue. It's a pain in the butt - needs to go back to the dealer every 15,000 miles or so for topping up. "Not a customer refillable item" they say. I now have a Nox sensor fault which says I don't have enough Adblue even though I do. The dealer says my car could turn the engine off at any point and refuse to restart, and I should no longer drive it on a public road.
Next car I get will NOT have Adblue if I can help it. Pain in the ass.
Kempton Page: To the best of my knowledge, the European diesels do not have the Adblue system. It is installed in American cars to meet US emissions specs....I believe that this is true for Mercedes diesels as well...
Nguyễn Thành: I have ad :

Melanie Sauer: Wow, thanks for responding. I really appreciate it.
myturbodieseldotcom: Either the tank wasn't full or they didn't adapt the tank or fix the system correctly.
Melanie Sauer: My Passat TDI was rear end one month after I bought it brand new. The entire right rear side was smashed in and the body shop had to take it to the dealer several times to get the exhaust working correctly. It has been 6 months since this repair was completed and I have 5500 miles on the car. I just saw an adblue notice on the panel this even. Is it a coincidence that this came on or could it be related to the accident or is it normal to have that light come on before the first oil change?
gaae2000: So should be added at 9000 just to be on the safe side?
Wheelin98: thanks this was very helpfull!
01fastrace: I am sure that the system can easily be defeated and simply reactivated when it is inspection time. Not a deal killer for me.
