How much AdBlue will I use?
The average consumption of AdBlue for commercial vehicles will depend of the type of vehicles that you are driving (truck, bus, coach, van, refuse truck…), as well as its level of use. The type of journey you are driving will also have an impact on how much the engine needs to work and therefore on how much AdBlue you will need.
In general, expect a consumption of AdBlue of between 4% to 6% of the diesel consumption. In other words, you will use about 5 litres of AdBlue for every 100 litres of diesel, or about 1.5 litres of AdBlue for every 100 km on the road. This means you will fill your AdBlue tank much less frequently than your tank for diesel.
We offer a calculator for the consumption of AdBlue that will be more precise based on your requirements. Please contact us for an estimate of the approximate consumption of AdBlue for your fleet.
