Think All Premium Fuels Are the Same?

Shell V-Power® NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline is engineered with four levels of defence against gunk, wear, corrosion and friction to help keep your engine running like new.* This patented formula is our most advanced fuel ever and available only at Shell.

How is Shell V-Power® NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline different?

Shell V-Power® NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline is our most advanced fuel ever.

While all three Shell fuel grades are certified as Top Tier Detergent Gasolines, Shell V-Power® NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline is formulated with four levels of defence designed to quickly get to the surfaces of critical engine components, forming a protective barrier against four threats to an engine:

  • Gunk,
  • Wear
  • Corrosion, and
  • Friction

Shell V-Power® NiTRO+ Premium fuels have been developed through our Innovation Partnership with Ferrari and represent more than 100 years of commitment to high quality fuels production. The Shell V-Power race fuel used in the Formula One Scuderia Ferrari V6 engine contains at least 99% of the same types of compounds used in Shell V-Power® NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline.

Shell V-Power® NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline helps keep your engine running like new* with:
  • Four levels of engine protection against gunk, wear, corrosion and friction
  • The highest octane of all Shell fuels at 91 octane
  • The highest concentration of the Shell Nitrogen Enriched Cleaning System
  • Seven times the minimum amount of cleaning agents required by federal standard
  • 0% ethanol at every station in Canada

Shell V-Power NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline is Engineered with Four Levels of Defence.

  • gunk

    What is Gunk?

    Gunk - or carbon deposits - can build up on intake valves and fuel injectors, making your engine less efficient. Shell V-Power NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline has 7x the cleaning agents required to meet federal standards and remove an average of 70% of gunk left behind by other premium fuels.

  • Corrosion

    What is Corrosion?

    Corrosion is caused by moisture and other contaminants, impacting fuel pumps, lines and injectors. Shell V-Power NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline is formulated with a unique agent that helps prevent the formation of particles from corrosive processes to reduce fuel filter blockage and support overall vehicle operation.

  • wear

    What is Wear?

    Wear occurs through the rubbing of two metal surfaces over time, leading to loss of metal on the piston assembly, fuel pump and fuel injectors. Shell V-Power NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline helps maintain a clean engine to protect against higher oil consumption, loss of power and higher emissions caused by wear.

  • friction

    What is Friction?

    Friction occurs when piston rings move against cylinder walls, generating heat, wasted energy and reduced efficiency. Shell V-Power NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline is formulated with our proprietary Shell SmoothGlide Technology to protect against friction by filling in rough spots in your engine, forming a protective layer to reduce friction and improve efficiency.
