Are you sure the message is "Not Low Adblue"? That's a typical message for when the Adblue needs topping up. If you've recently filled the Adblue up it can take several engine restarts for this to register properly.

That message is ONLY displayed for the SCR system faults and UREA. There will be one or a combination of warning lamps, including the service lamp, an audible warning and / or a message. In your case it will be UREA-related (Adblue) as this is the only system to give a mileage remaining warning before the starting of the engine is inhibited due to legislation.

So it will be a combo of wither the UREA warning lamp and the SERVICE lamp (and these can be fixed or flashing) or:
The UREA, the SERVICE and the MIL (Engine Management Lamp) again either flashing or fixed.

For the warning message and mileage you have indicated (700 miles), that would seem to be the UREA and SERVICE light (fixed, on switching on the ignition, accompanied by an
audible signal and a message indicating the remaining driving range). So the Adblue needs topping up - either at a Peugeot dealer or you can do it yourself.

The warnings I indicated may only show up momentarily after switching the ignition on - so I suggest you check again when the car is cold, switch the ignition on and quickly check the warning lamps before they go off as you already know the message.
