Vauxhall offers fleets free labour for AdBlue refills for Euro 6 vehicles

Vauxhall is offering its fleet customers free labour when filling with AdBlue under its Fill4Free initiative, which is part of the manufacturer's Service4Fleet standards.

Emission regulations mean most Euro 6 compliant diesel vehicles will need to be equipped with a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system, which utilises AdBlue to reduce NOx emissions.

Current Vauxhall models that feature the technology include derivatives of the Insignia, Cascada, Zafira Tourer, Vivaro and Movano.

“We are delighted to offer ‘Fill4Free’ to our fleet customers,” said James Taylor, fleet sales director at Vauxhall.

“We’re always looking at ways to make life easier for our customers and this is another great addition to our excellent Service4Fleet Programme.”

    Sadly, this will be another marketing action from Vauxhall which wont work to get more business for their dealers. Many leasing companies wont be covering for Ad-blue top ups, which means most drivers wont go to the main dealer even if the labour is free. The cost for Adblue from a dealer vs Halfords is miles different. Also if leasing companies are paying for top ups they won't send their vehicles into Vauxhall but to their cheaper suppliers. I can see another Life time Warranty marketing flop

      67.5% water and Halfords charges £20 for 4 litres of the stuff. How much does a Vauxhall dealer charge then?

    It's a wise decision not to let drivers fill up themselves because of the issues with cross contamination (very expensive repairs follow!) but why only offer this free service to fleet customers? And what do Vauxhall consider to be a "fleet customer"? But more importantly what about the second owners of these cars when they come to the end of their fleet life? Won't this affect residual values if used buyers have the added financial burden of paying a labour charge to top up AdBlue? I know the volume of AdBlue consumed is nowhere near as much as diesel but why does AdBlue have to cost almost as much as diesel when it's mainly 67.5% water and 32.5% urea?
