Halfords AdBlue Check & Top Up

If you have a newer diesel car, you may have noticed that your car uses something called AdBlue, which helps to reduce harmful emissions. At Halfords we're now offering to check and top up your AdBlue for €5*, on demand. Simply pop into your local store and ask one of our colleagues who'll be happy to help.

*Purchase required.

What is AdBlue?

AdBlue works with SCR (selective catalytic reduction) technology to reduce harmful nitrogen oxide and nitrogen dioxide emissions, and has been present on buses and lorries since the early 2000s. Thanks to stricter emissions regulations coming into force with Euro 6, most newer diesel cars are now sold with this technology.

AdBlue is a solution of water and urea, and the SCR works by injecting small amounts of this solution into the exhaust gasses. The heat from the gasses makes the urea release ammonia, and this is the catalyst that turns harmful nitrogen oxides into harmless nitrogen and steam. As nitrogen oxide is one of the causes of pollution and smog, using AdBlue helps to keep our air clean.
