Found 25th Jun 2017
I have a car which uses Adblue (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) to keep emissions legal (Euro6); most newer diesels will need it too. Last year I had to top it up for the first time and this deal got some interest then so, having used that supply up, I've found Unipart's deal is still the best. Cheapest if you can collect from store but I've ordered two 10 litre cans for the single shipment price of £3.75, which seems OK given the size/weight of them.

Car takes 12 litres to fill. Local franchised dealer wanted £3.50/litre to fill it bulk in their workshop or £8 for each 1.89 litre bottle to 'take away'. Terrible rip off and I've heard some places charge much more. Shell fuel station wanted £10 for 1.89 litres!

I did some shopping around and cheapest place I could find on the high street was Halfords: £14.99 for 4 litres.

Internet search came up with Unipart Autostore still doing a half price deal: £9.99 for a full 10 litres. Cheaper than the others by mile.

Consumption varies according to vehicle usage but I'm finding my car uses a litre in around 1,000 miles. It's a bit of a pain having to use this stuff but it makes a massive difference to the emissions and these Euro6 vehicles really aren't the villains that earlier diesels can be.

ordered 2 for £9.18 each with 5.25% cashback on top = £8.72 for 10 litres

much better than OP's deal

Like I said in post: used that up and this was still the best deal I could find. There must be a lot more cars out there needing it now and it's a shock the first time the warning light comes on and you discover how much some places charge. It takes a minimum of 4 litres to put the light out on mine so if i don't plan ahead it would cost around £30 just to do that a fuel station.

Thanks. That link seems to be at least 3 years old - will they still do it for £9.99 and will they do it for other makes?
My peugeot is a 66 plate so i have not checked yet.
I have printed this off to hand in if I need a refil.To get the price on their web site.
I dont think they will do it at this price for non peugeots.
It would just be a quick call to find out ?.
If you have access to Halfords Trade it's £10.50 for 10 Ltrs.

Depends on the make and model. Some have it in the boot, some have it next to the diesel inlet on the side of the car.
The cap is coloured blue if that helps.

Just googled it and it's next to the diesel cap. A little blue cap. I think you fill it up then turn on ignition for 30 secs to reset it. Then start car.

The main reason to own a diesel car is long mileage efficiency of which it's still the number one power source. Hybrid cars and electric are better around town and for anything under 15K miles a year, then it's petrol. I do 7K miles a year, a diesel would be a very stupid purchase for me. The number 1 problem with diesel cars is emissions, driving a diesel car means you're contributing to respiratory illness.

sciencedaily.com/rel…htm

The diesel boom started in the 1990's and was supported by the governments of the time, now we have more data they want to reduce the amount of diesel traffic on the roads due to adverse affect on the health of the population.

The reason for Adblue and BlueTec aqueous solutions is to try and reduce known health risks of diesel cars. It should be obvious that driving a diesel car is a public health nuisance. Many people invested in diesel won't like this evidence and will refute it, due to financial and cognitive factors, no one likes to learn that they made a purchase which has negative connotations to it.

ucsusa.org/cle…tml

It's entirely unrealistic to ban diesel transport from roads, as there's no effective alternative solution as of yet, a diesel scrappage scheme is costly and politics gets in the way. My last diesel car purchase was in 2008 and I will never be buying one again for any reason, that's because I can afford not to require one, many other people aren't in this position.

nope - the number 1 problem is diesel is 1p more expensive than petrol
picked this up in a Tesco fuel station last week £8 for 10 ltr
petrol gives its own emissions which are just as bad

Quite correct ,if diesels are so polluting why is car tax system based on lowest emissions lowest payment Eg.
VW golf R32 450 a year .
Renault Clio DCI .20 a year .
Based on co2 emission.
99% of goods delivered by derv vehicle ,not seen a petrol lgv vehicle .
Yes ban old buses spewing fumes with 2 people on between 10 and 3.
These reports are scaremongering ,how else will we move goods without derv wagon.

Are petrol cars any cleaner in reality? After a string of diesels, 4 with DPF) I have had a Golf R for the past 2 years. Pre-DPF diesels give out particulates and pretty much no NOx, DPF equipped diesels run hotter to help the DPF warm up and stay hot enough to combust the captured particulates - by running hotter, NOx is formed. Pre-DPF diesels and petrol engines run cool enough to not form NOx. Most direct injected petrol cars give out finer soot particles which are more mobile than those given out by pre-DPF, meaning they get deeper into the lungs when you breathe them in. My R has sooty exhaust tips, its predecessor (a GTD) did not. See the sooty exhaust tips on plenty of other cars too (Minis, Fords, Vauxhalls etc.)

Arguable, a bang-up-to-date DPF diesel with Adblue requirements is cleaner than a bang-up-to-date direct injection petrol car. £1-2 spend per 1000 miles on Adblue is nowt to worry about.

Electric is just as polluting when you take into account manufacturing requirements for those batteries and the fact that we don't generate much of our electricity via hydroelectric dams, solar, wind power etc. If everyone switched to electric within the next 5 years, this country's national grid would be on its knees.
