Problems with Shell Fuel Save Diesel

Posting by “schnitzer” 16 August 2010

We have a 2003 Facelift Freelander TD4 HSE, it has run normally and as expected until we filled the vehicle with the new Shell Fuel Save Diesel on Saturday 24th July, 2010, since then the revs are all over the place, the vehicle hesitant when start/stopping at places like roundabouts, struggling at higher speeds on the motorway, really feels bad. The car was checked on Saturday last, no faults were highlighted on the computer, but you could hear that the vehicle was not happy.

Then a BMW X3 diesel came in ! same engine, same Shell fuel, same problem, also nothing reporting on the computer system.

Hopefully, a tank of the Sainsburys taste the difference will clear the Shell. Fingers crossed.

    i have recently filled up with shell diesel……landrover discovery tdv6 …….the motor doesnt like this fuel at all…..i have re filled the tank after almost running empty…..still sluggish and irratic……apparently its gonna take 3-4 clean tanks to work its way out of the system………do not use bio diesel or this new shell diesel if you have a landrover
