AdBlue is a new diesel fuel additive which has been introduced to help eliminate the harmful emissions released by heavy vehicles used daily on our roads. As an official supplier of this diesel additive, Crown Oil can supply it to you at incredibly low prices and in any quantity you require from packs to bulk.
Through a process called Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), AdBlue reduces the harmful emissions which are released from diesel engines as the fuel is burned. AUS32 (Aqueous Urea Solution 32.5%) is the official name for AdBlue although the majority of people who use this additive call it AdBlue. It consists of 32.5% high purity urea and 67.5% of de-ionised water giving it its name AUS32.
Crown Oil is an official AdBlue supplier for the whole of the UK. Our company focus is on great customer care and reliable deliveries throughout England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. The AdBlue trademark is currently held by the German Association of the Automobile Industry (VDA – Verband der Automobilindustrie).

Modern heavy goods vehicles fitted with SCR technology are required to use AdBlue by law. As of October 2006, all vehicles above 7.5 tonnes are manufactured with this technology. This includes industrial vehicles, buses and trucks. Your diesel fuel will never come into contact with the solution because it is stored in its own designated tank with a sensor system and gauge. It is sprayed onto the exhaust fumes soon after combustion and works from there.
Is AdBlue A Fuel Additive?
AdBlue fluid is an additive used after after the combustion process and isn’t always considered an additive in the literal meaning. As a fuel additive generally defines a liquid which is added to the fuel itself, whereas AdBlue is added to the exhaust fumes before they’re released into the atmosphere.
Consumption and Emission Reduction
The rate of consumption for AdBlue is approximately 1:20 of the rate of diesel fuel usage on standard Euro IV, Euro V and Euro VI trucks. AdBlue solution is sprayed into the exhaust stream of modern diesel engines as a post combustion process.
Water vapour, nitrogen and carbon dioxide are released from the vehicle’s exhaust when AdBlue is used. NOx (nitrous oxides) are usually released from a vehicle’s exhaust which is damaging to the environment. Through the process of SCR, the AdBlue solution breaks down the NOx emissions and outputs much cleaner and safer levels of emissions.
To reduce the pollutant levels across Europe, using SCR technology has become a legal requirement when manufacturing heavy goods vehicles. Purchase AdBlue in packs or in bulk through Crown Oil and be assured of receiving the best product, customer service and price.
Using AdBlue diesel additive will surely help to reduce your diesel fuel consumption, which in turn will decrease the cost of fuel to heavy goods vehicle drivers and transport companies. Not only will you be saving money on diesel costs but, the environment will also benefit from you using AdBlue in your diesel vehicle.
AdBlue is available to buy in packs and bulk of litres (l):
- 10 l – A small amount for light usage!
- 210 l – Enough AdBlue to keep you going for a while!
- 1000 l – AdBlue delivered in an IBC
- 5000 l or more – We’ll send a dedicated tanker!
Don’t worry if you haven’t got room to hold 5000 litres of Aus32. Here at Crown Oil, we also provide Adblue storage tanks which are perfect for keeping your AdBlue clean and safe.
In more detail: How does AdBlue work?
As the diesel burns within your vehicle’s engine, it is forced through the exhaust system and expelled out into the air that we breathe. Before the emissions are released, the AdBlue formula is sprayed onto the harmful gases and the SCR Catalyst breaks down the bad stuff (Nitrous Oxides). Once that’s done, all that’s left is nitrogen, water and CO2 to be expelled from the exhaust system. Struggling to picture this miracle? Then check out the diagram below detailing the workings of AdBlue’s Nitrous Oxide reduction.
We also supply a wide range of tanks & pumps to store AdBlue diesel additive. Both hand and electric pump options are available depending on your dispensing needs. If you require any assistance regarding the storage of AdBlue, please speak to one of our knowledgeable staff for further advice and information regarding the ecological and economic benefits.
Please note: To increase the lifespan of your SCR, you need to handle and store it correctly using the appropriate storage and dispensing equipment. AdBlue is very susceptible to contamination from foreign matter as well as incorrect material selection. Buying reliable storage tanks and pumps from Crown Oil will save on future costs of storing and handling your AdBlue incorrectly.
