Shell send me a V-power mag every 3 months.
Had problems getting some in Devon last week, managed to get some on the M5 on the way home, £1.31 a litre.
I love V-Power and if they've developed a new type then they're being very quiet about it - unless anyone's found an article anywhere? Just rumours at the moment. Down here on the South coast there's loads of it.
Wonder if there's money to be made tanking some up to you guys in Scotland? Lol
£1.21 in Kirkcaldy Fife, or was last week.
Still can't find any v power! wat the ells goin on
Hasn't anyone of you up there asked the garage staff? Unless it's a comnspiracy, their area manager would have foreseen all this hoo-haa and told them why there was going to be a shortage, temporailly.
Just being logical, lol.

And I found this comment somewhere (lost the webpage but the text was on my clipboard - lol), sorry I can't provide the link. Anyway ... :
"The refinery that supplies the shell garages has been taken over by a new company. As part of the takeover, they initiated QC checks in the plant. V power, which is marketed at 99ron failed the octane tests and as such has been pulled from distribution until the refinery sorts it out and get's it back to 99ron."
I'm a member of the Shell "V-Power Club" which includes a nice magazine, special offers and, for me, about a £9 rebait every three months.
I found some info on the Shell Italy site - Looks like 100 octane!:
