What is wear?

What is wear?
Wear results obtained using gasoline modified HFRR ASTM D6079.

Wear can occur when two metal surfaces rub together leading to loss of metal from those surfaces. For example, two metal surfaces sliding against one another, such as a piston moving up and down against the cylinder wall of an internal combustion engine.

Abrasive wear in the piston assembly occurs slowly over time, with potential detrimental effects including higher oil consumption, loss of power and higher emissions.

The new Shell V-Power NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline formulation contains an innovative combination of two key cleaning agents that work together in harmony. This innovation enables inclusion of a new component designed to help prevent wear in critical parts of a gasoline-powered engine.

What is gunk?

Shell V-Power NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline VS Lower Quality Premium Gasoline Intake valve deposit results based on ASTM D6201.

“Gunk” is the carbon deposit build-up on intake valves and fuel injectors.Engines that have carbon deposit build-up, or gunk, on intake valves and fuel injectors, may work less efficiently.

Shell V-Power NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline, with seven times the cleaning agents required to meet federal standards, removes an average of 60% of harmful intake valve deposits left behind by lower quality premium gasoline, starting with the very first tank.

What is corrosion?

Shell V-Power NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline VS Leading Competitor Corrosion results obtained using ASTM D7548/D665.

Corrosion is caused by moisture and other contaminants that can make their way into a vehicle’s fuel tank.

It can impact the fuel pump, fuel lines, and fuel injectors. Furthermore, formation of particles from corrosive processes such as rusting of steel surfaces can contribute to the blocking of fuel filters, impacting overall vehicle operation.

The advanced formulation in New Shell V-Power NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline is designed to protect critical fuel system components from corrosion.
