    Default New Peugeot 308 Blue HDi

    I waa at the launch of the new 308 at Bayford City Peugeot last Friday. I noticed that the diesels offered are 110kW Blue HDi and the 133kW Blue HDi.

    It is very interesting to note that these engines use adBlue as the combustion additive rather than Eolys.
    Coles were recently advertising adBlue for $1.00 per liter. Quite a bit cheaper than Eolys.

    It should be cheaper, as it's mainly urea and water. See Diesel exhaust fluid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    I still think the plastic sump on the new motor is a bit iffy.

    You mean all this time we could have been saving money by weeing in a spray bottle and giving the air intake a squirt now and then??!!?

    The ubiquitous ECO mode and now the PEE mode. Sorry no radio, no ignition unless you PEE...

    If anyone wants cheap adblue, I buy it in bulk for our truck fleet. Happy to pass on the savings. Something like 65 cents a litre.

    Just a bit of info.
    The new 308 utilises both the adblue (Urea) and the eloys (Cerine).
    The adblue is injected into the exhaust to reduce Nox emissions and the eolys is added to the fuel as normal.
    The eloys fluid can't be replaced with the adblue in the current cars.

    P-Tec just kicked in, yo.

    Bit devious requiring TWO additives. That wasn't how the promotional video showed things.

    It's a bit sad that nearly all video and text on the BlueHDi system seems to now "gloss over" the DPF part of the new system, but their diagrams still seem to suggest DPF regeneration in the traditional method.

    You'll note the diagram refers to the DPF as an A-DPF or additive diesel particulate filter. I suppose this suggests the additive tank is now larger and has two sections - one for AdBlue and one for Eolys (or whatever the current stuff is).
