Just top it up when it asked for it. Donít ignore it though as the engine wonít start if it runs out!

Really? I thought it just reduced engine power to match the emissions of the engine running with adblue?

Its injected into the exhaust stream post cat to reduce NOx ,
Don't spill it on your alloys tho as it WILL make a mess , despite the can saying " non toxic and harmless " .

My understanding, performance is cut back as you say 'while driving'. After switching off, some engines won't start again until AdBlue is added.
