Total launches AdBlue on first five forecourts 16 June 2010

Total UK is now offering AdBlue HGV additives from a pump dispenser on five of its UK forecourts.

The five are Total at Kings Lynn, Barthomley (Junction 16 M6, Cheshire), Godmanchester (Cambridgeshire), Appleby Magna ( M42/A42, Derbyshire) and Thickthorn (A11/A47 Norwich).

Peter Hollister, retail fuels development manager at Total, makes the point that, to date, dispensers of AdBlue have mostly been set up on fleet premises, at a cost of several thousand pounds.

As more HGV manufacturers turn to SCR (selective catalytic reduction) to reduce NOx emissions from their diesel engine vehicle exhausts, Total, he says, wants to reduce costs and offer a convenient alternative for operators.

"Not only do the pumps offer real benefits to drivers in terms of convenience, they also provide a welcome cheaper alternative solution to fleets with HGV," says Hollister.
