    My 14 plate ML uses Adblue so I'd be surprised if yours doesn't. A quick look on Google suggests it might be in the boot in the where the spare wheel would have lived ... :confused:

    Mine is in the boot area but I have never added any as it’s topped up at services.

    I’d be pretty sure a 2017 car is BlueTec.

    I'd have thoughts so ...... very carefully! :D
    The second video with the squeezy bottle looks easier .... mine is next to the fuel filler cap & I just pour it in

    Yeah I've just watched that using the mb squeezy bottles. I thought it used a lot but a full tank can last 2 years . Worry over.

    Not sure on the tank capacity on mine? but the light came on mine after 10k miles (mostly motorway at the time) it came on soon after I got it, added 20 litres, then 10k later it was on again? I just used normal 10litre jugs of the stuff from Tesco...added very carefully..

    i can see the benefit of using a tube system... but least I know how or what they do for the ‘drain’ process... I’ve a powered pump from Aldi which hasn’t been used to suck out oil which could easily be user for that.. is the 24k mile drain really required I wonder

    I'd think only if ad blue had been unused after 24k later from a full fill.

    I believe with the lateys updates more adblue is used to improve emissions.
    I used to get around 8-10k on my 2016 W213 from the ~20ltr adblue.
    Mine went back before the software updates so I can’t comment on usage after updates - just what I’ve read.

    Anyone know if the top comes off the 1ltr bottles so I can refill it again and again from a 5ltr can. ?
