G’day, does anyone know where you can purchase Adblue for V10 in Australia, other than VW dealers?
Cheers

Are you sure it is ad-blu you need?

I ask because a number of V10s used something called Eolys fluid.

The fluid was intended to last :sick:100,000 miles or it had to be drained and changed after 5 years.

It is nasty stuff so any waste had to be properly disposed of.

From memory the Eolys fluid filler is under a rubber flap by the diesel tank filler cap.

Buying Eolys fluid from the dealer is very expensive and a refill is several $100s but other makes such as Peugeot also used it and their Eolys fluid is a lot cheaper.

I can't remember the tank capacity but a search on here should bring up old threads.

However if it is definitely ad-blu then any ad-blu from any supplier is fine - just make sure the use-by date is good.

Yep, it’s that stuff you talk about, with filler located under rubber around fuel tank filler. The independent guy I take it for service, last time ordered it from either Peugeot or Renault. Was tricked from over east, as cannot be on plane.

Yep I realise it’s not the “normal” adblue, but that’s the name that gets used generally- thanks for passing on the correct terminology

Renault, Peugeot, Citroën and maybe others used it.

From memory a VW dealer Eolys refill headed toward $1,000! It was a cost the first owners of V10s probably never discovered but came as a nasty surprise to subsequent owners.

I remember someone on here filled their Eolys tank with ad-blue in error and then had to drain the system pronto!

Thanks Drag, I actually contacted them yesterday. $91 per litre, but almost half that if the independent mechanic wants to keep some in stock👍
