How to: Putting AdBlue On Your Land Rover

Land Rover is investing billions of dollars in developing the most technologically advanced and responsible vehicles in our history. Land Rover Diesel powertrains utilize a Diesel Exhaust Fluid known by the brand name AdBlue® to help achieve the highest level of emissions standards. Learn how this advanced technology works with your Land Rover, pushing the combination of performance and efficiency to new levels.

New rules and new technologies mean the latest Land Rover vehicles are better for the environment than ever. One way our engineers have achieved this, is with Selective Catalytic Reduction. A special Diesel Exhaust Fluid called AdBlue is added to your exhaust system. AdBlue turns harmful Nitrous Oxide emissions into water and other harmless gases.

To work properly, the AdBlue levels in your Diesel Exhaust Fluid tank have to be maintained.

We’ll top up your AdBlue as part of your service plan, but you may need to do it yourself, especially if your mileage is higher than average. So, if you see one of these warnings on your message center before your service is due, you’ll need to purchase an AdBlue refill from your local Land Rover retailer.

Remember, if you ignore these warnings, your vehicle will prevent you from starting your ignition. You’ll get plenty of notice before this happens.


  1. To top up your AdBlue, open your hood and find the filling cap. Remove the cap and take the lid off your AdBlue refill bottle.
  2. Insert the bottle and turn it clockwise until you hear a click. Then, push it down until it’s empty.
  3. Turn the bottle anti-clockwise, remove the empty bottle and, finally, replace the cap.
