Available at BP sites for Fuel Card customers

If your fleet’s vehicles require AdBlue, it’s good to know BP PLUS and BP PLUS Bunker cardholders can pick up a 10-litre can at any BP site. That’s enough solution for an SCR-fitted vehicle to run for 250 miles. 

AdBlue is also available at special pumps (to be dispensed like fuel) at selected BP sites .

What is AdBlue?

Also known as diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), AdBlue is a urea solution made with 32.5% high-purity urea and 67.5% deionized water. It works in conjunction with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology to remove harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) from diesel emissions.

Most new diesel trucks and vans are now fitted with SCR technology and so have an AdBlue tank that needs to be refilled regularly.

How does it work?

AdBlue is injected directly into the exhaust pipeline. The urea vaporizes, leaving behind ammonia and carbon dioxide. The SCR catalyst uses the ammonia to turn NOx into harmless water and nitrogen, which are then released via the exhaust. 

What’s the advantage of AdBlue for fleets?

Vehicles fitted with SCR technology tend to be more reliable and go longer between oil changes than those without. Over a truck or van’s lifetime, this can add up to significant cost savings.
