    That's a Port Douglas summer. The standard requires a shelf life of a year unopened. Once opened it depends on temperature. Most of us could get 6 months with the lid on tight..

    It's made from ammonia and CO2 and is commonly used as fertilizer. In the case of adblue, because it is being used as a chemical catalyst, it is of vary high quality and purity, so DIYing it is not realy a good idea.
    Urea is a colourless crystalline compound which is the main nitrogenous breakdown product of protein metabolism in mammals and is excreted in urine. So, if you have the kit, you can refine the urea in your own urine to the same standard as "adpiss". Go for it! I have a Renault which costs nothing extra to pass emissions tests.
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    Default To add to the topic-

    I have just purchased a 3008, 2011 year, with the 2 L HDI diesel, it will have the DPF additive and the Adblue.

    Klms just on 80K, so there is another learning curve on several levels and on my learning journey are there any comments about the 3008 (other than 'whatever did you do the for' of course) that might be of use?

    2.0 HDI from 2011 - are you sure about Adblue? This came in with the last Euro emission spec. There is a filler cap near the fuel cap.

    The additive to enable regeneration of the particle filter is held in a tank under the body with some injected into the fuel tank after a top up. Most people get about 160,000 km before a refill, which needs a computer reset at the same time.

    No adblue in any psa before 2014 euro 6 Mazda had it around 06 from memory you said before you had ‘someone’ put it in your eolys tank? The thing to take away from all of this is don’t touch these systems until you get a indication that top up or service required, they are not ment to be serviced just as a matter of fact. The start blocking system gives you enough warning to drive from Sydney to Brisbane and back so relax and enjoy your cars.

    Well, hello, Gary,

    I have just discovered your post (I haven't looked at the site for some months) and it takes me back to my experiences a year or so ago and your ERG question struck a chord with me.

    In my case (2005 407 2 L HDI), at about 180k the engine would begin a process at idle/light pedal pressure of, revs hunting, where they fell about 150 RPM, then would immediately recover, then down again, etc., and this would go on for about 20 minutes. I could not get any useful info to explain this activity, but at the end of the 20 minutes all would be OK again for some weeks, whence it would happen again. Acceleration would stop the 'hunting', and selecting 'N' at lights would stop the car moving about. So in these ways I could control the annoyance factor and live with it, so to speak.

    At some point it was suggested to me that "blanking off the ERG might fix the problem". This was from a "Volvo trained mobile mechanic". This hoped for fix was not effective, unfortunately, and at last I'm about to have the EGR replaced (I got one from a wrecker and have cleaned it up and my very good mechanic will fit it shortly).

    In the interim I have learned a lot about this 'hunting' issue, both from the forum and from Regan Motors Service in Auburn, Melbourne. It is all related to the matter of the DPF regeneration process, which, in my case was that I needed to have more frequent runs of sufficient speed and distance to generate the heat necessary to 'burn-off' the particle filter. AND THE EGR Valve plays a role in this process, which is inhibited by it's being blanked off. So, whilst I don't expect the un-blanking of the EGR valve will fix the 'hunting issue' it will play its part and this, together with my 'driving sensitivity', will likely allow me to control it better as I now know why it is happening!

    Together with a very good auto service business here in Perth (which happily is near where I live) there is now a far better understanding of this DPF process and this is something that occurs in the trucking industry, apparently, and there is a company who cuts open the DPF casing and then 'roasts' the inner filter in a high temp oven and then reassembles/rewelds the casing and that should return the filter to new/empty condition. And as my 407 is now past 200,000 Kms and going very well it should go one for another 200,000.

    In the mean time I have just purchased a 2011, 3008 with the 2 L HDI engine and at 80,000 Kms I will now research what the DPF treatments are for it...................wish me luck!

    Wordy, but I hope this helps a bit.

    Regards,

    Notrog

    Thanks for your post, so the 3008 then, essentially, has the same treatment as the 3008, the eolys installed by PSA, good. And yes I did have the warnings that the 'additive was running low' and that was where the 'story' really got interesting!

    Whoops, that should have been 3008 then, essentially, has the same treatment as the 407
