AdBlue sources for DIY refills
More information than you really wanted to know...but should know!
Mercedes Benz Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) additive Requirement:
Other key specifications for other AdBlue are:
Per Mercedes maintenance Manual Page: 13 "Emissions System Maintenance":
DISCLAIMER: Improper filling and contamination of the AdBlue system WILL result in failure and EXPENSIVE damage to the emissions systems! Any attempt to repair, refill or tend to the system MUST be done with every reasonable measure to insure not external contaminant enters the AdBlue system! NEVER mix anything with the AdBlue additive! The system detects actual NOx output, therefore additive with ONLY the appropriate ISO 22241 Approval can be used to insure proper dosing of the catalysts. Diluting the additive WILL result in damage to the catalysts and a very expensive repair bill.
With that said, here is a listing of suppliers of the AdBlue additive:

almost made the mistake by buying online, $59 for 4 bottles and $69 to ship to house.. I think I will just go to a VW dealer and get it there...

I live in MN, just called VW and they quoted $8 for 0.5gallon, then Mercedes who said it was $9 for the same. My GL has a 9.5 gallon tank but at 10,000 miles should only need 7gallons to fill it up (according to the dealer). Nice video on you tube shows how easy it is to do youself (about 4mins in).
Dealer quoted $250 to fill the tank at the 10k service, so even if I buy it in 1/2 gallon jugs saves $170.

Exactly the same ISO number - the dealers (MB,BMW & VW) are just trying to make a huge profit on those 2 liter bottles.

$22.00 Ad Blue refill
Today I purchased two, 2.5 gallon jugs at Autozone for $11.00 each. I also bought a 1 liter bottle from The VW dealer for $8.00. I just wanted to try the official bottle with the no spill neck, The official bottle worked great. I used about four gallons altogether.
I broke the lock on the neck of the official bottle so I can refill it from the 2.5 gallon jug and make topping off the reservoir allot cleaner next time. It would be great to get the no spill neck fitting on the 2.5 gallon jug. Hey for the money I saved I don t mind the extra step.

+1 on this I did the same thing after buying a 2.5 gallon jug at a truck stop. Then I found it for $11.50 at Wal-mart...I highly recommend using the official bottle but filling it from the larger container. You DO NOT want to spill the Adblue as it will cause electrical issues with connections at the refill point and cause a mess in your MB.
