EURO 6, DIESEL ENGINES AND SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION: WHAT IS DEF, HOW TO REFILL AND FAQs

WHAT IS DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID/AdBlue®

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) also known as AdBlue®, is a non-toxic, colourless, odourless and non-flammable fluid. Stored in a dedicated tank in your car, it is injected into the exhaust system to clean exhaust gases. Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology is fitted to all Land Rover diesel vehicles from 2016 Model Year. It enables Land Rover to meet EU6 emissions legislation by reducing the levels of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emitted from the exhaust system by up to 90%. In addition to a new generation of catalytic converter, SCR Technology requires the use of DEF.

HOW WILL I KNOW IF MY DEF/AdBlue<sup>®</sup> LEVELS ARE LOW?

HOW WILL I KNOW IF MY DEF/AdBlue® LEVELS ARE LOW?

The message centre displays a series of messages when the DEF level becomes low.
1. The first message states that the DEF level is at a level where a Top-Up is advised.
2. The second message is accompanied by an AMBER warning icon and states to refill the DEF tank.
3. The third message starts a countdown of the distance remaining until the DEF tank is empty, after which the vehicle will fail to start.
4. The final message is accompanied by a RED warning icon and is displayed when the distance remaining is zero and states that no further restarts will be possible until DEF is added to the tank.

WHAT IS EURO 6?

Euro 6 is a piece of European Legislation aimed at making cars more environmentally friendly by limiting their exhaust emissions. The legislation sets restrictions on how much nitrogen oxide (NOx) and hydrocarbon gases may be emitted per kilometre by a road vehicle.

Petrol and diesel cars are subject to different restrictions under the new Euro 6 legislation. For diesel cars, the permitted level of NOx emissions has been brought down to 80 mg/km (from 180 mg/km), while the permitted level of hydrocarbons emissions has been brought down to 170 mg/km (from 230 mg/km). The permitted level of NOx emissions for petrol cars remains at 60 mg/km, while the permitted level of hydrocarbons emissions remains at 100 mg/km.

Along with other car manufacturers, Jaguar is legally obligated to comply with these new regulations by the following dates:

From 1st January 2018, all newly introduced vehicles must meet Euro 6 standards in Singapore. This includes any new models on the market.


For more information on AdBlue® please contact your local Land Rover Retailer or refer to your Owner’s Handbook.

*When the AdBlue® level becomes low, a notification message displays in the message centre. Refill the AdBlue® tank at the earliest opportunity. A Land Rover Retailer/Authorised Repairer can be contacted to arrange a full AdBlue® refill.
If required, AdBlue® can be topped up using non-drip refill bottles available from a Land Rover Retailer/Authorised Repairer. An average consumption of AdBlue® is 800km (500 miles) /1 litre. However, consumption can vary greatly depending on your driving style, the weather and the condition of the road.
