I think this is a Particle fluid tank that I found on my 407. It is located near the front of Rear Passenger Side tire and holds a fluid in a plastic reservoir, the fluid is very similar to Automatic Transmission Fluid. It was in red color, my tree shed mechanic who owns a garage did not know what it was but I have to give him credit as he did the half job and and remove the tank for me and I saved my starched white shirt and I finished the job. The small pipe was leaking so I fixed the pipe from the scrap that he had in his shop(Saved a trip to the dealer by buiyng a special pipe) any way I put two clamps on both sides and problem solved. The fluid did not feel toxis or dangerous as I was able to clean it with soap and water after wards. Need to find out what is this fluid anyone has any info

Adblu is nothing like Eolys fluid – it is the equivalent of putting beer in your rad instead of Antifreeze. The only thing that Adblu and Eolys have in common is that they are liquids.

The active ingredient of Eolys fluid is Cerium (III) Oxide. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cerium%28III%29_oxide There is no Cerium (III) Oxide in Adblu at all – None… zero… zilch…

Eolys fluid is only mildly toxic after it has done its job in the exhaust system http://findarticles.com/p/articles/m...5/ai_78395835/ but this is being measured in parts per million.

Actual contact of Eolys fluid with the skin (or any other body part) where the concentration will be higher is to be avoided. The Hazmat warnings say that skin irritation, lesions and sensitivity to heat may result.

the 307 eolys tank is under the car just forward of the passenger side rear wheel. It is covered by a heat shield.
Adblue is used by trucks to lower emissions-made from pig pee . It is not the same as EOLYS!!!
Fleebay is a term for E BAY

NOTE: there are 2 types of EOLYS fluid depending on age of car

Default eolys fluid choices.

The time has come to top up my fluid, No warnings as yet but i think my filter is starting to block,(engine ecu reports high pressure when read with PP2000) a forced regen didn't help matters so i guess the tank is empty but the ecu still thinks it's got a couple of shots left. visually it looks empty.
I have a later 2003 and the fluid has been confirmed as eolys 176. i have read that this fluid is being phased out and Citroen are using "Infineum F7995" in place now and peugeot are phasing in "eolys powerflex" both of these apparently have been shown to be more effective at DPF regeneration and extending the life of the filter.
does anyone know if it is ok to just add these to the tank and let the ECU get on with it?

The additive ecu need to be reset after filling the additive tank.
