From April 2016, all Jaguar diesel models (including XE) will feature AdBlue® emissions reduction technology. As well as being powerful and fuel efficient, these new generation Jaguar diesels reduce Nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 90%, using the innovative AdBlue liquid, so you can be confident that it is better for the environment than ever.
AdBlue® solution is stored in a separate reservoir in your vehicle and, as you drive, small amounts are injected into the exhaust system, breaking down harmful gases like Nitrogen oxide emissions and turning them into water vapour and nitrogen gas without affecting the performance or safety of your Jaguar.
Usually a litre of AdBlue® lasts around 1,000 miles, so for most drivers a refill will be needed roughly once a year. Your Jaguar's message centre will give you an advance warning when your AdBlue® level is low to give you ample time to organise a refill. You’ll be given plenty of warning before the system reaches zero, but please be aware that if you ignore these warnings and the countdown reaches 0 miles, your Jaguar will not restart after you switch off the engine. Please pay careful attention to these warnings and do not let the level reach its minimum point, as if you do we cannot guarantee a quick refill of the system, due to the need for your car to be plugged into SDD, Jaguar’s vehicle diagnostics system.
may also like to pick up a 1.89 litre non-drip AdBlue® top-up bottle
from your local Harwoods Jaguar dealership. The Jaguar sales or
service teams will be happy to show you the location of your Jaguar's
AdBlue® reservoir and how to fill it up.
The recommended AdBlue® specification for your vehicle is ISO 22241-1. It is of vital importance that you use the correct Jaguar approved AdBlue® when topping up your Jaguar’s system, as versions of this fluid offered at petrol stations and other retailers can often be harmful to your vehicle and could nullify your warranty if damage does occur.
