OWNER INFORMATION - ADBLUE®
Your car's new environment-friendly technology
New diesel engines have an SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) catalytic converter which uses AdBlue® to limit nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions.
AdBlue® is not a fuel additive; it is a water and urea solution kept in a special tank, which must be refilled periodically when required. This technology ensures compliance with Diesel emission requirements without reducing your car's fuel-efficiency, handling, torque and power.
AdBlue® is available with Wrangler JL diesel models.
When do you need to top up the AdBlue® tank?
AdBlue® consumption depends on your driving style. The instrument panel will alert you by means of a warning light, a symbol or a message when your car needs an AdBlue® refill.
We advise you to top up with AdBlue® regularly, especially before long journeys.
If the AdBlue® tank is empty, you will be unable to start the engine!
Where can I purchase AdBlue?
AdBlue is available in pack form (usually 1L or 10L containers), sold at most major fuel stations and automotive stores (e.g. Repco, Autobarn, Supercheap Auto)
AdBlue is also available at the pump at some fuel outlets; most fuel suppliers have a fuel selector on their website that allows you to check the availability of AdBlue in packages and at the pump.
How do you fill up with AdBlue® ?
You can fill up yourself following this simple procedure, or contact your nearest authorised Jeep Dealership.
Always remember to refer to the full instructions provided in your Owner's Handbook.
1. LOOK OUT FOR THE ADBLUE® ALERT MESSAGE OR WARNING LIGHT
If the AdBlue® level is low, the warning light or symbol illuminates and a message advises you to top up with at least 5 litres of AdBlue®.
2. FIND THE CAP OF THE ADBLUE® TANK
The cap is next to the fuel filler cap.
3. FILL THE ADBLUE® TANK
You can fill up the Adblue® either by containers, or at the pump for fuel stations that are equipped as shown below. Remember always to fill the tank with at least 5 litres of AdBlue® If AdBlue® spills out of the filler neck, clean the area thoroughly and continue filling; if the liquid crystallises, remove it with a sponge and warm water.
4. WAIT FOR THE MESSAGE TO DISAPPEAR OR THE ADBLUE® WARNING LIGHT TO SWITCH OFF
After filling up, with the ignition device in the START position, wait for the warnings on the display to go out before starting the engine. If the reservoir was empty before filling up with AdBlue®, you may need to wait for up to 2 minutes.
