Shell V-Power (Diesel or Petrol) 10p off a litre, minimum fill £40

265
Found 7th May 2013
Went to fill up petrol at Shell Gillette Corner, they have a free attendant service. I was going to put in £50 of unleaded and he said that he could give me a voucher for 10p off a litre, but it had to be V-Power...which worked out 1p cheaper a litre than unleaded. Was told that this should be avilable at any station with attenedant service. Offer ends 2nd June 2013.

Update: for those asking, I was given voucher before filling.

Thanks, wasn't aware of that! The attendant was kind enough to give me an extra voucher :-)

have some heat

Excellent stuff, I hate having to pay over the odds for higher octane fuel

Also at non attendant stations, Filled up yesterday

For me the V Power Diesel always seems to last longer

My local (Bolton BL1) shows as attended on the spreadsheet but is not and has no knowledge of vouchers.

Phone yours before you go.

How did you find this out - Also do you need a voucher prior to filling up, or is it deducted at the till when you pay?????

Went to my local garage on the A580 (Manchester), they were at the till, the guy gave me a vouchers and deducted 10p per litre off at the till.

I run this through my MX5 from time to time, gonna be all over this offer.

I would imagine it's to promote their new V-Power Nitro+ branding?

I needed voucher prior to filling up and was scanned which made the deduction.

This is a quality deal, next time I'm getting a full tank will definitely go for this. People who don't appreciate premium brand fuels need not apply

This should be scorching hot!

A-wesome deal for V-power fuel.

theres two near me, i have never seen an attendant at either of them though :s

Probably cos they've just started this.

Awesome - my car only runs on VPower/Tesco Momentum so I'll grab a tank-full

Good deal for fuel - on a side note, terrible idea by Shell. There is always a queue at several of their stations near me and rush hour you have 5 cars queuing into the road causing traffic jams.

Shell’s new Forecourt Attendants will offer basic car care advice i … Shell’s new Forecourt Attendants will offer basic car care advice including checks on oil levels, screen wash levels, tyre pressure and tread.



Can't see this causing anything but grief - fuel attendants with card payment machines YES. checking oil and screenwash levels and generally increasing the time a car in on the forecourt NO!

Is this National no vouchers provided in Enfield?

I get 100BHP and 20MPG increase when I run V-Power in my 335D.

Might just treat her when i need to next!!

i am not sure but i thought you have to spend £40 on V-Power first

then you get the voucher, so you can use it on your next purchase (which would have to be minimum £40 again)

can the op tell me if this right or wrong


(if thats the case then, the price you pay is an average of the two purchases or something, anyway i couldn't work it out in my head how much extra or less it was on the spot =p, and petrol prices have changed since then)

If you drive a diesel, get yourself a bottle of pure 2-EHN

trinity-research.co.uk/pro…=49

and a bottle of Millers Diesel Power Plus Additive, add both in very small doses to normal regular fuel and you have much the same thing

This deal is good whilst it lasts and puts the price in the same ball park as normal stuff, but there are cheaper ways of boosting Cetane and cleaning your injectors than paying over the odds for premium fuel.

2-EHN is often added to forecourt diesel fuels in order to boost Cetane.

Is Vpower actually any better/???

In a word - yes, 1 of the best fuels you can buy

OP were you given voucher for your filling up there and then or after filling up? Hot either way though!

and pigs can fly

Voted cold, I have been filling up with V power at least twice a week, each time spending £40+ and never been given a voucher by anyone, only sent vouchers by Shell (not 10p/L).

and pigs can fly



Indeed. Try cutting off a zero from both of those and you'll be closer to the real figures from the tests I've seen.

Yes it is a higher octane fuel.

If you have a beast of a car you should get better MPG and more bhp.

If your driving a corsa 0.1L you prob won't notice.

Probably because it's so expensive you dare not drive the car when filled with V-Power.

Good for your pocket & good for your engine.

that's because your tank is normally empty and therefore not going anywhere.

100BHP and 20MPG sounds about right for a BMW 335D.

What about a 1.6L Corsa?

2L and above turbocharged engines to actually notice a difference.

Ah this old chestnut; fuel.

I only run my S3 on super unleaded, the price of super unleaded tends to be 5-6p a litre more expensive than regular unleaded so on a 60L tank it costs roughly £3.60 more to fill up so that doesn't bother me as I only fill up twice a month.

For those driving a 1.6 Focus for example are unlikely to tell the difference but for performance cars it's much better using super unleaded.

Evo ran a dyno test on various fuels a while back, one of the cars was a Golf GTi, here's the stats:

BP 95
Max power 204bhp
Max torque 242lb ft

BP Ultimate
Max power 212bhp
Max torque 252lb ft

You'll have to buy the mag to see the article but here's a topic on it on a forum: Here 8bhp and 10lb/ft increase isn't shabby at all.

See it in action:

BP Ultimate: 97 octan

Shell V-Power: 100 octan

The two fuel is nowhere near to each other. It always makes me laugh how little ppl know about fuel in this country
