Any opinions on Eolys .
#1
Does anybody think it’s worth replacing the tank( mainly for the new pump) when replacing the Eolys. Has anybody replaced the Eolys and then got another 100000 mls out of the pump? Any pointers opinions welcome.

The length of time it takes to run out will depend on how much you stop/start in your driving. Mine ran out at 50K. A replacement tank is ridiculously expensive. My local garage took the box off and replaced the fluid with a kit that came with a pump to fill it. When it was refitted it threw up a number of low pressure warnings. The solution was to tell the car that a new box had been fitted. You'll need the Citroen software to do this as deleting the error code won't make any difference. The pump does not die when the fluid runs out. 

Personally I think filling it is the equivalent of putting third party cartridges into your printer and the printer not using them properly or not working because the manufacturer doesn't like it. It's unlikely you will get 100K out of a full tank.
Incidentally it cost me £95 for the garage to refill it. A new tank and pump is around £400.

You can get original part tank complete for £185. The Eolys seems to be about £65. I have diag box to reset. Is it worth paying the 185 for new part or will the original part do another turn. Just seems like if it’s done 102000 which it has will it do that again without failing. Are the pumps reliable? Thanks for the input.

Can anyone tell me if there is a bladder contained within the plastic casing or whether the casing is the container itself.

2015 was a flip flop year for pouch or tank, from 2016 on, all are tanks. Before 2015 all should be a pouch.

Have seen pictures of the plastic pouch. Is that contained within the plastic tank The tank is https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/374463801277. or is it just contained within the plastic tank. Just thinking that if it has a plastic pouch in the plastic tank might replace it as pouch will probably degrade? Might leak? What do you think.

That's the one mine has. It had a level sender, unlike the pouch system. They aren't exchangeable. That's not the pouch version as the pouch had only a plastic cover.

I.e. if you have one version, you can't fit the other. On the ones with a pouch, Citroen fitted a separate additive pump ECU, on the ones with a tank and pump, the engine ECU has the additive control integrated into it. They're not compatible with each other

On the pouch system, the "tank" looking bit is a 5 sided cover and when it's off, the pump and pouch are visible.

On the tank system, it's all integrated into the tank unit and can't be seen. It only has a hose and a plug, the hardware is inside. When the tank is disconnected, the whole lot comes off as a one-er
