There was only one small problem. The new wonder fuel ruined many car engines and it did so on an international basis.

This time round, the new fuel is called Shell V-Power NiTRO+. 


The major oil company said the fuel, which replaces its V-Power premium gasoline in the United States, is its “most technically advanced premium” fuel, formulated to protect engines from wear, corrosion and carbon-deposit buildup.

“New Shell V-Power Nitro+ Premium Gasoline isn’t just a breakthrough for Shell; it’s an industry breakthrough in fuels technology,” said Elen Phillips, vice president of Shell Americas fuels sales and marketing. read more and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan.
