    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

    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.

    I Am The Man!

    Read this - http://www.shell.com/home/content/g...eature_opportunities_for_refineries_0109.html

    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."

    Next???

    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!:

    This new formulation is designed to improve performance and maximize the performance of your car, whatever it is and from the first supply.
    Why is Shell V-Power Special

    Instant Performance Technology (IPT) is a new technology developed by Shell escienziati, the same involved in the development of race fuel.
    Worked directly on the molecules of the new Shell V-Power, selecting specific hydrocarbons able to speed up the combustion process.
    The special molecular formulation of Shell V-Power works the same way both in racing engines than in every day, helping the engine to release the maximum energy available.
    Three important features

    Friction Modification Technology (FMT), the same used by Ferrari Formula One circuits, is designed to reduce friction between piston and cylinder.
    This frees up precious mechanical energy, which is normally lost as heat, and place more efficiently to the wheels.

    Shell V-Power is also designed to remove the valves and injection systems all those deposits that norms have a negative impact on performance and consumption.
    The benefits in guid adi tuti day
