What happens if you run out of it ?
A lot of people think that engine will be damaged when you run out of AdBlue but it is not entirely true. The engine performance will be decreased a lot and it may put additional strain on transmission but because the engine will not shut down, the on board electronics will automatically limit engine performance when AdBlue supplies are depleted. If the engine has SCR technology, the vehicle will lose power and go into Limp mode to reduce its emissions according to legal standards.
Running vehicles on limp mode are not advisable and serious damage may occur.
