By further optimising the BlueInjection system with the latest software, we will continue to reduce harmful NOx exhaust emissions in everyday driving. This update will also ensure that your vehicle meets forthcoming emission standards that become effective in September 2017.
HOW TO ADBLUE®?
WHEN TO REFILL?
Cars fitted with the BlueInjection system need regular AdBlue® top-ups between recommended service intervals. An indicator in the dashboard will inform you when levels are running low.
Each AdBlue® tank is equipped with sensors that trigger a series of messages when the fluid is running low.
There will be three intervals:
- When the remaining range equals 2,400km to 1,750km - a warning is briefly displayed on the on-board computer.
- When remaining range falls below 1,750km - a warning will be displayed every time the ignition is turned on.
- When the remaining range falls below 900km – a constant warning will show until you top up.
Attention! If the AdBlue® tank is emptied, the system will need a full top-up before the car can be restarted.
HOW TO REFILL ADBLUE®?
Top-up the AdBlue® tank yourself using one of the AdBlue® containers available on many garage forecourts. Alternatively just go to your local Opel dealer for a refill.
- The AdBlue® tank is located next to the diesel fuel filler (or behind an opening in the rear bumper in the case of the Antara).
- The AdBlue® filler cap is coloured and is opened just like the fuel filler.
- Top-ups are easily done using passenger car compatible containers available at many garages or other outlets. Alternatively you use one of the AdBlue® refill pumps available on some garage forecourts that are specifically designed for passenger vehicles. Do not use truck / commercial vehicle AdBlue® pumps.
- If AdBlue® is spilt on the vehicle’s paintwork, wipe it off and rinse the area with water.
