Filling

Capacity of the fuel tank: 3.52 gal 

(16 litres) approximately.
With the ignition switched off, open the 

cover A, then unscrew the cap 1.
Note: Ammonium hydroxide vapour 

may escape from the cap opening 

when the tank temperature is high.

Please ensure that you comply with the 

legislation of your country.
It is important to remember that failure 

to respect regulations in force could 

lead to legal action being taken against 

the vehicle owner.

Operating principle

The reagent is intended for diesel en-

gines fitted with the SCR (selective cat-

alytic reduction) system.

The use of reagents reduces exhaust 

emissions by transforming the pollut-

ants into water vapour and nitrogen.

Reagent quality

Use  only reagents which conform 

to standard ISO 22241 and in accord-

ance with the mark on the tank filler 

cap.

REAGENT TANK 

(1/4)

A

1

Fuel filler cap: this is spe-

cific.
If you have to replace it, 

make sure it is identical 

to the original cap. Contact an ap-

proved Dealer. Do not wash the filler 

area with a high pressure washer.

Vehicle fitted with the Stop and 

Start function

To fill up with reagent, the engine 

must be stopped (and not on 

standby): stop the engine (please 

see “Starting, stopping the engine” 

in Section 2).

If the “XXX MILES (XXX 

KM) Failure Top up AdBlue” 

warning message appears, 

fill the reagent tank and 

refer to the filling instructions.
Risk of immobilisation of the ve-

hicle.

1.99

In extreme cold weather conditions
Fill the reagent tank as soon as pos-

sible when the warning light 

 

and the message “Top up AdBlue 

before 1200 km” are displayed.
The reagent fluid freezes below about 

-10°C.
In these conditions, do not attempt fill-

ing when the fluid is frozen. In the event 

of needing to top up or fill the tank 

with reagent (

 on), park the ve-

hicle in a hotter location if possible so 

that the reagent becomes liquid again. 

Otherwise, have a qualified profes-

sional top up or fill up with reagent fluid.

Precautions for use

When filling, handle the reagent care-

fully.
They can damage clothes, shoes, 

bodywork components etc.
If the reagent overflows, or contami-

nates any paintwork, clean the affected 

area quickly with plenty of cold water 

and a soft cloth.
Note: If the reagent crystallises, use a 

soft sponge.

The reagent must not come 

into contact with eyes or 

skin. If it does, wash the af-

fected area with plenty of 

cold water. If necessary, consult a 

doctor.

REAGENT TANK 

(2/4)

No work whatsoever is 

permitted on any part of 

the system. To prevent 

damage, only qualified per-

sonnel from our network may work 

on the system.

After filling the reagent tank, check 

that the cap and cover are closed, 

start the engine and WAIT 10 sec-

onds with the vehicle stationary, 

engine running before setting off 

again.

If this operation is not carried out, 

the filling of the tank will not be 

taken into account automatically 

until after several dozens of minutes 

of driving.

The message “--- Top up AdBlue” 

and/or the warning lights will con-

tinue to appear until the filling has 

been registered by the system.
