The garage may be talking about eloys fluid this is different to add blue i doubt your 2011 vehicle has add blue, the add blue tank would be behind the drivers seat and needs filling every month or so. The eloys fluid bag is under the vehicle and need changing anywhere from 75k onwards. When the bag is replaced you do need to reset the ecu to tell it it has eloys fluid refilled.

I would call Citroen any local one will do and get a price to do the complete job.

You could try a independent Citroen specialist who should be much cheaper than Citroen and can do the whole job , I.e. refill and reset .

Mark Lightfoot is in Ilkeston about a hour away from you could do the job, there may even be another specialist closer to you.

The EURO 5 diesel did have eloys fluid,
the EURO 6 diesel started with add blue around 2015.

IIRC the number of times the fuel cap is opened gets counted & after a certain number is reached, the EML will come on for the fluid change & counter reset. I think there's a thread on here somewhere about making sure the contacts are clean around the fuel cap to prevent false readings.
It's an odd way to do things as filling up with smaller amounts will raise the counter more quickly.

Euro6 motors have both, EOLYS and Adblue.

Thanks for the recommendation guys.
A 2011 vehicle will not be adblue.
We have recently had some success refilling the pouches with fluid, this is much cheaper than replacing with a new one.
Unfortunately the pouches often leak, so a new one must be purchased, they are very expensive.
Perhaps someone will start selling empty pouches, could be a great opportunity for making a few quid.

You could use any other strong plastic bag as a pouch like a camelbak for water.
