Consumer blog slams US DEF price

Laura Cross - 4 January 2010

A consumer web site in the US has complained about the high costs of DEF. The Consumer Reports blog found the cost of AdBlue was $32 per Gallon from a dealership, when it filled its Mercedes-Benz GL320 BlueTec for the first time. The blog, called "Feeling a bit AdBlue over spending a lot of green", said: "The total bill just for adding AdBlue? A stunning $316.99. We were down to 18% full on the additive at 16,566 miles. It took 7.5 gallons to fill the tank, costing an eye-opening $241.50 for the fluid alone."
