AdBlue for your Land Rover

From 2016 model year, all Land Rover diesel models feature AdBlue® emissions reduction technology. These new generation Land Rover diesels reduce Nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 90%, in addition to being fuel efficient yet powerful.

How does AdBlue® work?

AdBlue® solution is contained in a reservoir within the vehicle. As the vehicle is driven, tiny amounts of the solution are injected into the exhaust system - this breaks down Nitrogen oxide emissions into water vapour and harmless nitrogen gas. Your driving experience is not affected in any way.

How long does AdBlue® last?

Typically a litre of AdBlue® solution lasts around 10,000 miles, so for most drivers a refill will be needed roughly once a year. Your Land Rover's message centre will warn your AdBlue® level is low with ample time to organise a refill.

For further peace of mind, you may also like to pick up a 1.89 litre non-drip AdBlue® top-up bottle from us. The Land Rover sales or service teams will be happy to show you the location of your Land Rover AdBlue® reservoir.

AdBlue® checklist:

  • Only use genuine Land Rover AdBlue® refills – commercial vehicle AdBlue® pumps at fuel stations may damage your Land Rover's reservoir or cause spillage.
  • Your Land Rover message centre will inform you when to refill. Don't leave it until empty; your vehicle will not then start until you refill.
  • If you have any questions about AdBlue®, please contact us.
  • AdBlue® is the registered trademark of the Verband der Automobilindustrie e. V. (VDA)

    It’s important that your Land Rover's supply of DEF is maintained, as EU legislation means that you cannot start the engine without it. Your car’s message centre will give you advance warning when your DEF level is low and will alert you in plenty of time to book a refill. Your local Land Rover Retailer/Authorised Repairer will also refill the tank as part of your scheduled maintenance. Please refer to your Owner's Handbook for more information.


    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.
