This could be many things but the most common are as follows

1. It might just be low on the eloys oil in the diesel additive tank and needs topping up to cure the problem.

2. there might be a magnetic counter switch on the fuel filler flap. The purpose of this is that every time you put diesel in the ECU assumes you have filled up the tank, from this information it calculates how much eloys oil to inject into the exhaust system to burn off soot particles.

If you fill your car up say 5 pounds, ten pounds here and there, the ECU assumes that the additive tank may be empty but in reality it is not, this can only be re-set by using diagnostic equipment throught the 16 pin EOBD diagnostic socket.

Pjl I always thought it simply determined this by way of the fuel sender unit level.
Simply as they surely couldnt expect people to fill there tank fully every time.
However I'm no expert on this I just know some of the basics but I was curious e.g. a before fill up reading by the ecu and the after fillup difference.

I THOUGH YOU JUST HAD TO TAKE IT FOR A HARD RUN OUT TO CLEAR , CLEAN IT , IE DRIVE IT HARD AND IT CLEANS THE SYSTEM OUT , RESETS IT , IT WORKS ON THE 307 HDI , THE FUEL ADDITIVE LAST ABOUT 48,000 MILES AND IT HOLDS 5 LITRES .

The oil is a bit dear and isnt terribly handy to do either, quite why a remote resevoir for filling this up wasnt made is beyond me.

Yeah basicly the add blue does much the same thing as the eloys but I'm not sure if the two are compatible.
Last time I checked it was 20 odd quid a litre from a dealer but you may be able to get it aftermarket cheaper than that nowadays.
The fluid is stored in a tank next to the main fuel tank.
The biggest problem for most people with this is even if you refill the little eloys tank, your meant to reset the ecu and unfortunately not many of the aftermarket tools seem to be able to do it.

All you need to do is take it for a good long run drive it hard , it cleans the system out and resets its sell , about 40 mile run will do it , what miles is on the clock because after 70k you diesel additive will need refilling cost £130.00 @ peugeot
