13 Sep The difference with other fuels and its advantages
The superior quality of Shell Diesel Extra contributes to good engine performance, prevents corrosion of the fuel system while reducing maintenance costs over the useful life of a vehicle, machinery or heating equipment.
Economical and environmentally friendly, this fuel with recognized energy efficiency saves up to 3% on fuel, prevents corrosion of the fuel system and reduces emissions and smoke.
Just like gasoline, diesel comes from the refining of crude oil. Their chemical characteristics and the type of engines they power constitute their main differences.
Gasoline is made up of a mixture of light hydrocarbons while diesel is made up of heavier hydrocarbons. Several transformations carried out on the products resulting from refining make it possible to improve their quality. Subsequently, synthetic molecules (additives) are added to gasoline and diesel to optimize performance.
V-Power gasoline, recognized as a “premium detergent gasoline,” also contributes to engine cleanliness, and helps optimize emissions levels, fuel consumption and vehicle performance.
