|In line with its ongoing efforts to encourage consumers to be more fuel-efficient, Shell Malaysia has launched its FuelSave Diesel Euro 5, which is designed to last longer per tank.|
The launch of the new diesel also builds on Shell’s previous initiatives for the local fuel market, such as the recent FuelSave Challenge and FuelSave College Competition, both of which are aimed toward building awareness for fuel-saving. The new Euro 5 diesel also aims to provide consumers who want a high quality fuel that is compatible with modern diesel engines that require low sulphur content.
Shell FuelSave Diesel Euro 5 is now available at selected sites throughout Peninsular Malaysia, in accordance with the company’s plan to ensure that high quality diesel is available for its customers. Shell aims to invest into its expansive network to quickly extend availability at more locations throughout the country.
In its efforts to encourage drivers to be more fuel efficient on the road, Shell Malaysia is also partnering with premium automaker BMW Group Malaysia in creating awareness on the importance of fuel efficiency and emissions responsibility on the road.
Shell FuelSave Diesel Euro 5 features Active Efficiency Ingredients, which is designed to improve engine efficiency from the very first tank, helping vehicles use fuel less quickly. It also has a special detergent designed to maintain engine condition by helping prevent the build-up of injector deposits.
The fuel has an ultra-low sulphur content of only 10 parts per million (ppm) of sulphur compared with 500 ppm in Shell FuelSave Euro2M. When used with compatible Euro 5 engines, the Diesel Euro 5 enables the advanced engine and emission control systems to perform optimally, just as they were designed for, while reducing emissions.
Shell Malaysia plans to roll out the Euro 5 Diesel at selected stations in the next few months. Presently, the new diesel is available in five stations, which are situated at the following locations:
Shell NKVE-Damansara Highway, Selangor
Shell Tapah Rest Stop, Perak
Shell Tanjung Malim Layby, Perak
Shell Bandar Ayer Keroh, Melaka
Shell Pasir Gudang Highway 2, Johor
