AdBlue Warning

Hi, Iím a new Touareg owner and I just got my first add AdBlue in 1000 miles warning. How much AdBlue is needed to fill the tank? I have a 2016 LUX TDI.

I believe the tank is under the spare but I donít know how much AdBlue to use to fill the system.

I believe the tank capacity is very close to 5 us gallons. It will require you lifting the cargo cover, removing the spare, removing the rubber plug that seals the floor and then unscrewing the def cap. You will need a funnel or else make a mess with the jug nozzle. Wipe up any spillage asap as it crystallizes quickly.

If you use a proper bottle or filling method, you won't spill any.
