I too would like to know if my DPF sips on pigs wee wee or not. (Pig wee is main ingrediant in eloys fluid)
So is the bottle in the engine bay or near the fuel tank in the rear ?

Best answer, call your local dealer/s and give them your number plate / VIN, if your car has it, they should be able to tell you.

If not... try another dealer!

The EOLYS fluid is added after a certain amount of fuel is input into the tank. its injected straight into the fuel tank, and so, needs to be close to the fuel tank. If you look up from the underside of the car, up to the area where the fuel door is then you should see it around that area.
