Fines assessed by the National Competition Authority (GVH) just keep on coming: Yesterday the body announced a HUF 25 million penalty on Shell Hungary on charges of misleading consumers. Advertisements for “Shell FuelSave” gasoline promised a reduction in fuel consumption, but GVH found that this was not the case for the overwhelming majority of consumers.

In a terse statement, Shell Hungary representatives said they were “very disappointed” with the decision; no word on whether an appeal is forthcoming.
