AdBlue Diesel Exhaust Fluid | Ford New Zealand


What is AdBlue®?

Many new diesel vehicles, including Ford Everest, now require the use of a Diesel Exhaust Fluid, commonly referred to as AdBlue®. This fluid is automatically injected into the vehicle’s exhaust system to help reduce oxides of nitrogen emitted from vehicle, in order to meet the latest Euro 5 emissions standards. AdBlue® is stored in a small tank and, just like diesel fuel, the driver must ensure that AdBlue® is kept topped up in their vehicle. Further information on AdBlue® can be found in the applicable Owner’s Manual.

How often is AdBlue® used?

Your usage of AdBlue® depends on your vehicle use and driving style. As a guide, a tank of AdBlue® typically lasts 12,000 to 16,000km of normal driving.

When your AdBlue® level is low, a warning lamp and message will illuminate in the dashboard’s information display. You’ll receive further reminders to top up as the fluid level reduces. The vehicle will not start if the tank gets to empty. Filling up with AdBlue® is a simple process you can do yourself.
