Hi,

   Im awaiting my kuga which has the 1.5 diesel engine, my parents spoke to some one at halfords about adblue (for a van they have) the person said all new diesel engines will use adblue. Is this right or is it a load of rubbish as i have never heard of a kuga using adblue?

      Thanks

Ford are rolling out the "EcoBlue" engines which utilise Urea Injection but I wasn't aware that the Kuga had one yet.

It's probably also not true that all diesel engines will have to use  urea injection; it's just one way of meeting NOx emission standards.

Looks like ecoblue engines are only available in the Transit at the moment.

Is Adblu a patented solution or something synonymous with say "Hoover".  If the former then if and when all diesels are required to use it, it sounds like a stitch up

Lots of manufacturers use this system but what I do not like about it if you get the message saying Adblu top up required ( which is at set intervals of mileage) the car will not run until its topped up. This could be very inconvenient if your caught short without any, plus some cars ie Picasso , are a nightmare to top up. My neighbour has one and he has to empty boot to access a hatch behind rear seats to do it

On all the Fords I've seen with it the filler is next to the normal fuel filler.
Also Fords don't go into limp home mode when out of Adblu (or so I was told by someone that works on the Transits)

Ad blue is injected into the exhaust manifold to lower nox imisions going to atmosphere
Engines with this system can use less exhaust gas recirculation or in some cases none at all the way the viecle is being used determines how much is being used the hotter the exhaust gas the more it uses .

Trucks have been using it for years. It will help bring car tax down a lot..hopefully !
