AdBlue® cheat systems – and why it’s not worth it!

If you’re a road haulage operator or fleet manager you’ll no doubt be aware of certain websites and businesses offering a modification that effectively bypasses the AdBlue® CRS system in your vehicle. You pay one price and that’s it – no more AdBlue®.

You’d think it was a no brainer wouldn’t you? However, as some operators are finding out, the consequences of paying for this system can be disastrous in more ways than one.

With this in mind, I thought it could be a good idea to outline the reasons why using an AdBlue® ‘cheat system’ on your vehicle or vehicles is a really bad idea.

The garages who fit these systems are criminals

The work to bypass the system is often undertaken by dodgy backstreet garages operating outside of the law. Would you take your own car to a garage where they knowingly install illegal equipment to vehicles? The AdBlue® cheat devices are illegal and any work done will be unguaranteed and without any sort of warranty or assurances.

The AdBlue® Cheat system can damage your vehicle

If the system is installed incorrectly or even correctly, it’s very easy to cause damage to the highly complex technology that works within an AdBlue® system. Try taking your vehicle to an official dealer and telling them you fitted an illegal AdBlue® cheat system to your vehicle. One thing is for sure, apart from running the risk of being reported to the police it isn’t going to be cheap to put right.

The systems are illegal

Police forces together with the DVSA have been stepping up UK roadside checks on vehicles specifically looking for illegally fitted AdBlue® cheat systems on commercial vehicles. A recent article by commercial found that one in 12 vehicles stopped had an illegal AdBlue® cheat system fitted. Hauliers then had 10 days to remove the system or face a heavy fine. Offenders can also risk losing their operators licences and several have.
