Just been to Iceland and noticed the garages have AdBlue on draft. Felt smug 'cos not yet needed to top mine up. Got back to Manchester and collected the DS from the airport carpark, and guess what message came up on the dash.

Yes, I was out there in December and noticed them. Quite why the UK haven't got around to installing them on forecourts is beyond me, given the amount of Euro 6 vehicles we have on the roads now.

Got 3500 in my new DS MY19 and currently got the warning saying 650miles left and needs 10liter+ adblue top up.

Anyone knows what sort of cost I should be expecting from a LR dealerhsip for topup?

I wouldn’t bother with the dealer. Adblu is cheap enough from Halfords, Costco or from Amazon and filling the reservoir is easy to do.

I think it’s £30 if you don’t have a service pack, free if you do.

Bought all mine off ebay for between £6 and £10 for 10 litres, and filled it myself, takes about 5 minutes, dead easy!

But don't overfill, or it's a trip to the dealer with red face. This should be covered somewhere above.

Yes let the range drop to around 1000 miles or a bit under, then you can throw in 10 litres without worrying.

Thanks all,

Computer tells me I’ve got 600miles left so it’ll be 10 liter then.
