At Shell we love what we do. And providing our consumers with a gasoline that can improve their cars' performance is not just our passion, it's who we are. It's why we constantly test our gasolines against the competition, both in the lab and on the road, to prove that there is a difference in the gasoline you choose.
The Shell Difference
Low-quality discount gasoline can allow performance robbing gunk to form in your engine. All Shell gasolines stop gunky build-up on critical engine parts to help cars perform at
their best. While Shell gasolines contain more that twice the cleaning agents required by government standards to help keep your engine clean, low-quality discount gasolines contain only the minimum amount. And Shell V-Power, our premium grade gasoline, has more than five times the amount of cleaning agents required by federal government standareds and can clean up the gunk left by low-quality discount gasolines.
We conducted several tests including a 5,000-mile dual-fuel engine test.
By using a special test vehicle, in which one half of the engine ran on Shell gasoline, we tested two gasoline products in a single engine under identical conditions. In addition, we performed an open-road test using two identical
cars, one filled with Shell gasoline, the other filled with low-quality discount gasoline. We set out on a 5,000-mile journey to prove the difference in fuels. The results of both engine and road tests were that the engine using low-quality discount gasoline built up at least eight time more gunk than the engine using Shell gasoline.
Remember, the next time you need to fill up, there is a difference in the gasoline you choose. Stop gunky build-up in your engine. Use Shell.
