For BlueTEC vehicles only.

The BlueTEC exhaust gas aftertreatment must be operated with the reducing agent AdBlue® in order for it to function correctly. AdBlue® is topped up as part of the service. Under normal operating conditions, a full tank of AdBlue® should last until the next service due date.

Depending on how and where the vehicle is used, there may be an increase in the AdBlue®consumption, resulting in the next service due date being brought forward.

Certain display messages show that AdBlue® must be topped up, e.g.

Refill AdBlue at workshop See Owner’s Manual

Refill AdBlue at workshop No start in .. km

A warning signal also sounds.

You can no longer start the engine when the AdBlue® supply has been used up more.

Before taking a trip with your vehicle outside Europe, have the AdBlue® supply checked at a qualified specialist workshop. If necessary, have the AdBlue® topped up. Before using your vehicle for an extended period in countries outside Europe, contact a qualified specialist workshop.
