Does the AdBlue range change depending on driving style?

I recently bought a used 2017 Mercedes GLC and I noticed that the AdBlue gauge doesn’t seem to change from 3100 miles although I have driven about 500 miles since I last checked. Is this a fault or does the gauge move in large increments?

The consumption of AdBlue will vary depending on the vehicle and the style of driving, but it is possible to travel anywhere between 5000 and 10,000 miles without requiring a top up.

If you are unsure if the gauge is operating correctly you should get this checked by your dealer, but most cars will provide a warning indicator if the AdBlue tank is running low.
