DPF additive warning

Post by Cupra to DS5 »

Hi all
I've had the DPF additive fluid low warning come up on my dashboard and am just trying to verify that it's the tank I have rather than the bag

I've got a 2013 DS5 2.0 Hdi Sport

It's in for a service next week but the garage asked me to double check

Thanks ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

You have a reservoir, not a pouch system.

Of course. All DS5 Diesels have a DPF system and therefore have a DPF additive used with it. Being a 2017 model, your DS5 will almost certainly have in addition to the DPF system, an SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system to treat NOx. So you will have separately, and in addition to, an Adblue tank for this purpose.

The filler access for the Adblue will be under the boot floor on the rear left hand side if you have the Blue HDi engine, shown here:
