In fueling stations with dispensing equipment, I have seen prices (on line) of $2.99 per gal AD BLUE. That would make 2.5 gals app $7.48 (sans containers). That would drop the CPMD: ad blue to .000997 cents.Amazon sells AD Blue (I.E., 2.5 gal container) and with FREE shipping !! (over $35.00), IF you don't want to shop in a brick & mortar.
Amazon wants $13.97 for the 2.5 gallon jug of Peak DEF. Same thing a Wally World is $11.97. I look for it to get cheaper before I have to service my own. It is not anything real exotic. Urea is widely used in fertilizer as a good source of Nitrogen. Harmless to humans and animals. I am glad the Germans came up with a cheap way to cut NOx in diesel engines. Hopefully Mercedes & BMW do not gouge customers on service. Some have been denied AdBlue top off at BMW dealers on their 50k mile free service. And horror stories about only getting 5000 miles with their 6 gallon tank. This is rather disconcerting:
Follow SI B16 01 09 to properly drain and/or refill the active and passive tanks of the Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) system. Current BMW models require approximately 6 gallons of DEF during refill. The system must be drained and filled with fresh DEF at every oil service.
Actually it is good to know that! IF folks are considering BMW's diesel's, that issue would certainly be one of the questions to bring up BEFORE buying, to either the servicing dealer or shop they would use.

I am not sure if this is accessible.
..."Yes, but does it come on before you start the car? If not the adblue will be a popsicle for almost all of my in town winter driving. I rarely go over 2 miles at a time unless I leave town - not enough time to thaw much of anything."...
From a (gasser/diesel).02 cent perspectives, if this situation is not tailor made for an EV, what is? (albeit, much more expensive than it has to be) Or,... when is Uber coming to your town?
Subaru on the LEFT coast has an almost cult like following.@ruking1
You either need to lobby for Subie diesels or and AWD TDI Golf for me. Although the way this winter is going, If I wasn't so lazy I could definitely get by with snow tires & 2WD (either FWD or RWD). It is already February and we've got the threat of snow until maybe the middle of March?
And you have seen me post that I thought Subaru WAS/ is probably one of the best made (Japanese) line in American markets. Too bad they do not see fit to bring in their diesels.
