AdBlue on Tap
In 2005 the legislation on diesel vehicles in Ireland and the rest of Europe demanded a drastic reduction in NOx emissions. As a result of this, most new vehicles come with SCR technology (Selective Catalytic Reduction).
If you have purchased a new diesel vehicle that is manufactured to meet Euro IV, V or VI standards it may require AdBlue®.
AdBlue® on Tap:
The Glen Fuels Kilmacanogue depot has AdBlue® on tap at our drive-in pump. The pump is open to everyone during business hours Monday - Friday 08.30 - 1700 and Saturday 08.00 - 13.00. If you have a Glen Fuels account, you simply sign at the counter. If you have a Glen Fuels Fuel Card, present your card at the counter to be swiped. We also accept cash and all major cards.
The AdBlue® tank is generally located:
- Beside the fuel filling point. It will be a smaller filling cap.
- In the car boot (look for DEF identifier).
- Under the car bonnet (look for DEF identifier).
AdBlue® is essential for the cleansing and reduction of harmful emissions before exhaust fumes are released into the atmosphere. It is stored safely within a separate tank creating the cleansing and catalytic effect. AdBlue® consumption is typically around 3%–5% of the diesel consumption for a typical vehicle, dependent on weight and other relative factors.
