Ok background, leaving on a trip tomorrow AM and of course my car decides to be temperamental.
Reductant Consumption Too Low
Add Blue 200 mi countdown (just added 2.5 gal 2 days ago)
I am trying to come up with a list of things I can check or do first. pressed for time and I admittedly have not searched yet as I’m hoping for a targeted list. I appreciate the help!

Sounds like you may not be leaving for that trip in the Touareg or else the likelihood of being stranded is high with that issue.

Pssstttt... What's the date? When was "tomorrow morning"? He's already gone and possibly stranded by now 😅
I noticed once it was far too late

Alright! Im back and was able to make it happen last minute. On a whim I decided to pull the DEF that I had in the car. I had just put in 2.5 Gallons in ( did not know the car holds 5 ) any way I learned 2 things, Capacity and DEF does have a expiration date. I noticed when I put the new stuff in, the Amonia smell was MUCH stronger than the stuff I siphoned out. I got every last bit out and dropped some fresh stuff in went around the block, cleared the codes and after 1000 mile trip, no lights and all is well. I also just replaced the Fuel Filter and seriously feels much better! Not sure if it is a placebo. I am going to clean up the OG post to hopefully help anyone that comes across this.
