"I compared the fuel consumption in my truck between this summer and last and I’m impressed with the results! My truck also seems to pull a little better, although the fuel savings alone** have convinced me that Shell Diesel Extra is a worthwhile investment."--Jean-Marc

In his 2012 Freightliner Coronado (which has seen approximately 650,000 km), Jean-Marc drives a route to Quebec to meet the fuel needs of customers. He is someone who is always open to ideas on fuel efficiency improvement, so when Michaud Petroleum, a Shell Branded Distributor in New Brunswick, suggested a more advanced fuel might help, Jean-Marc wanted to know more.

The distributor explained the fuel saving benefits of Shell Diesel Extra and Jean-Marc decided he wanted to give it a try.

The Claim:

The distributor explained to Jean-Marc that he could potentially save fuel by up to three per cent* by purchasing Shell Diesel Extra. This is due to the fact that Shell Diesel Extra contains a detergent that helps to prevent the buildup of injector deposits which adversely affect the spray pattern and combustion process.

The Results:

Jean-Marc has been using Shell Diesel Extra exclusively since July 2014 and carefully observed his mileage and fuel demand.

After observing the benefits of Shell Diesel Extra, Jean-Marc recommended the fuel to a fellow driver who, like Jean-Marc, is now also experiencing a fuel saving benefit from switching to Shell Diesel Extra.

 *Over the lifetime of the vehicle. Compared to regular diesel without a fuel economy formula. Savings may vary per truck/vehicle, driving conditions and driving style.

** Shell Diesel Extra helped Jean-Marc to improve by 4% comparing Q3 2014 and Q3 2013
