Shell V-power is a high octane car fuel’s technical specification.Shell scientists uses the Formula One as a laboratory for fueldevelopment.Fuel Composition- Friction Modification Technology(FMT) which is formulated toreduce friction between the cylinder and piston rings, a criticalarea of the engine where lubrication is difficult to achieve. FMT isdesigned to help the engine turn more freely, and so supportmore efficient energy transfer from the fuel to the wheels.
-High octane, Shell V-Power has high octane unleaded petrol (99 RON)designed to help maximize the performance of many modern engineswith adaptive spark timing capacity.-Powerful Cleaning Technology, developed to help enhance everydaydriving performance and responsiveness. These cleaning componentsare designed to prevent the build up of power-robbing inlet valvedeposits and to help remove those which may have been left behind byother fuels. For over 60 years, Shell and Ferrari have shared a passion for performance. The dedicated team of scientists in Shell’s Centre for Fuels Development use the Formula One environment as a laboratory, testing fuels and lubricant formulations under the most extreme conditions. We work on many factors that affect a car’s engine, then use these insights when formulating Shell V-Power, helping to benefit drivers in many countries.
