About Shell FuelSave
Our regular priced fuels designed to last longer
Our scientists started to develop ideas for new, more efficient standard fuels because our customers told us they were looking for ways to save on fuel.
The results are Shell FuelSave Gasoline and Shell FuelSave Diesel - specially designed, efficient fuels which have replaced our standard Gasoline and Diesel fuels, at regular fuels prices.
From the moment Shell FuelSave Gasoline reaches your engine, you could start to benefit from its advanced fuel economy formula. Its instantaneous fuel economy formula is designed to improve your fuel efficiency from the very first tank.
Previous fuel economy formulations have been solely based on keeping critical engine parts clean, such as intake valves. We continue to add special detergents to our Shell FuelSave Gasoline formula, to help keep engine parts clean, so Shell FuelSave Gasoline can help give you improved engine efficiency, and ultimately, better fuel economy.
Shell FuelSave Gasoline has been specially formulated by our scientists to lubricate where normal engine oils are less effective, which helps the engine to turn more freely.
This allows more of the available energy to drive the wheels. We have also added special detergents designed to help keep engine parts clean. Shell FuelSave Gasoline can help give you improved engine efficiency, and ultimately, better fuel economy, from the first tankful.
From the moment Shell FuelSave Diesel reaches your engine, you could start to benefit from its advanced fuel economy formula. Its instantaneous fuel economy formula is designed to improve your fuel efficiency from the first tank.
Shell FuelSave Diesel is our efficient fuel scientifically designed to ignite and burn more effectively than standard diesel, thereby helping to increase the efficiency of your engine and improve fuel economy.
When diesel is injected into the engine, there is a time delay between the fuel droplets meeting the hot, compressed air and the start of combustion.
Shell FuelSave Diesel is designed to reduce this time delay and thereby help the engine achieve more optimum combustion, which can help to increase fuel efficiency and to improve fuel economy from the first tankful.
Shell FuelSave Diesel is also designed to prevent the build up of deposits on fuel injectors. In heavy duty trucks these deposits can reduce engine efficiency and lead to poorer fuel economy in the longer term.
It also includes special detergents formulated to help keep fuel injectors clean and prevent deposits building up in your engine.
Heavy duty vehicles
For heavy duty vehicles like trucks, buses or off-road vehicles, diesel fuel works differently.

About Shell FuelSave
Enriched with Efficiency Improver, Shell FuelSave is designed to help improve fuel economy by reducing energy loss. It helps prevent the build-up of deposits in the engine, leaving more of your fuel’s energy to power the wheels, providing you with improved fuel efficiency.
About Shell V-Power Nitro+
Shell V-Power Nitro+ is designed to improve performance in any car you drive. Its unique double action formulation is designed to actively clean your engine and protect vital engine parts to help deliver more powerful performance.

It can take years of scientific research to design new fuels and identify the right formulations that make a difference. Shell FuelSave fuels are the result of an extensive research and development programme aimed at discovering and designing fuels to help improve engine efficiency and so make fuel last longer.
Improving fuel efficiency
Energy losses can occur in different parts of your engine. By identifying fuel-engine interactions which may cause these energy losses, we were able to develop ways to improve engine efficiency and make the fuel last longer.
Development and testing
To select an efficient composition of our Shell FuelSave Gasoline formulation we carried out more than 400 development and validation tests on chassis dynamometers, on 20 car models from 12 different manufacturers. Those designated fuel consumption tests accumulated over 9,000 km.
During the development of Shell FuelSave Diesel we carried out more than 400 development and validation tests on chassis dynamometers, on 9 car models from 8 different manufacturers. Those designated fuel consumption tests alone covered a total distance of 4,500 km.
From the moment you fill your car with Shell FuelSave Gasoline, you could start to benefit from its advanced fuel economy formula. That’s because it’s enriched with Shell Efficiency Improver, combined with a special detergent package, designed to improve fuel economy from the very first drop.
How does Shell Efficiency Improver work?
Previous fuel economy formulations have been solely based on inlet system deposit control over extended mileage using detergent additives.
This advanced additive formulation combined with the Shell Efficiency Improver component works by lubricating where normal engine oils can’t easily reach. This can help engine components to turn more freely, resulting in more of the fuel’s energy being made available to drive the wheels.
The result? This helps you get the most out of every drop of Shell FuelSave Gasoline. Potentially even more when used together with our Shell FuelSave Tips.
