Want to start spending less on fuel? Shell has introduced Shell FuelSave, that helps your fuel last longer

Drivers all over Kenya looking to make their fuel last longer now have a helping hand – and it requires no more effort or expense than stopping at Shell and filling up.

Their solution comes with the launch of Shell FuelSave Unleaded and Shell FuelSave Diesel, two breakthrough Regular priced fuels which are designed to last longer. They represent Shell’s most advanced fuel economy fuels ever but cost no more than the current Shell Unleaded Extra and Shell Diesel Extra that customers buy from Shell forecourts. They will be available in the country at 132 sites from 25th June 2014.

Polycarp Igathe, Managing Director Vivo Energy Kenya said: “Drivers now have a more fuel efficient option available to them at the pump; something we know they have been asking for. Both Shell FuelSave Unleaded and Shell FuelSave Diesel are Regular priced fuels designed to last longer, therefore helping you to reduce your fuel consumption and costs. All you have to do to start making your fuel last longer is look for the signs and fill up. And it won’t cost you anything extra.”

The innovation behind the new fuels lies in their instantaneous fuel economy formula, which helps improve fuel efficiency from the very first tank.

Shell FuelSave Unleaded is designed to reduce energy losses by lubricating where engine oils are less effective, such as the upper piston ring. It is also designed to keep inlet valves clean, prevent deposit formation and improve engine efficiency.

Shell FuelSave Diesel is designed to ignite and burn more effectively, helping to produce more efficient combustion in your engine. It is also designed to help protect against the build-up of deposits.

To show drivers the benefits of Shell FuelSave Unleaded and Shell FuelSave Diesel, Emma Wyatt, Shell Scientist conducted a demonstration  which  explained how using the new fuels and making a few simple changes to driving habits can help drivers reduce their fuel consumption and costs. Also present at the event were Shell fuel expert Mike Zacharias and Oscar Mbala, Technical Services Manager Vivo Energy Kenya
