Ad blue Russian roulette

Hi,
I have been driving around with the adblue low warning for a couple of weeks now...

Does anyone know what the countdown starts at when it does start please?

Starting to get twitchy about it now hoping it does give a countdown before refusing to start!!

I want to get it as low as poss as the 10litres wont go in and I have mild OCD about these things!


Thanks for any knowledge..

Has no one had the ad blue countdown?

If so how many miles did it say you had remaining when the countdown commenced?

OCD.

Its like Father Christmas ... I have heard about the countdown but it seems that no one has seen it.... so I may have to follow your advice.
Every time I have filled it from the first warning it only takes 8 litres until it spills out over the paintwork.... so Iíll keep punching on until I see the countdown or it wonít start.

EIther way it will take the 10 litres next time.

I've just ordered a Euro 6 N-Guard to replace my current NP300 Euro 5 model and was told if it runs out of adblue it has to be recovered as the motor will not run. The issue isn't mechanical its legislation and if it continued to run it wouldn't meet the emmission standards needed (and I suppose if it did continue to run no one would add it anyway). Maybe they were over egging it, to me recovery seems a tad strong, I thought of it ran out and the motor stopped adding more adblue would sort it unless what Bristol Street said is correct and it needs some sort of dealer reset to protect and ensure the emissions standards.

It doesnít just stop!

You get a countdown... mine is still not showing a countdown but I havenít moved it in over a week now as Iím not working currently.


Once the countdown is at zero and you turn off the ignition it will not restart.
It will continue to run at zero until you end that journey by switching off the ignition, or you stall or run out of fuel.

It will not just turn off.


As for the restart, the previous Citroen we owned just needed the adblue refilling and it would then restart. Iím hoping they are all the same.

I wonít let mine get to zero anyway.... I just want to know the amount of miles displayed when the countdown commences

I would suggest you ignore any comment from the people in the Nissan showroom....
