Power at your Command through cleaning your engine as you drive.

When you use ordinary diesel fuel, deposits can be formed inside the engine that can affect the spray pattern from the fuel injectors. This can impact the mixing of fuel and air in the cylinder, which can negatively affect the combustion process in the engine. Shell V-Power Diesel has been specially formulated to not only prevent the build up of these deposits but to even remove existing deposits. Shell V-Power Diesel can therefore, help to improve the combustion process in the engine, giving you power at your command.

Diesel engines have become much more sophisticated over the past few years. Shell V-Power Diesel fuel is developed to protect the metallic components in your engine against corrosion. Furthermore, Shell V-Power Diesel forms a protective layer over the injector nozzles, which can help them to last longer.
