BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN – After much fanfare, Brunei Shell Marketing (BSM) has launched two new high-performance motor fuels at 14 retail stations throughout the country.

It has been almost 20 years since a new motor fuel has been introduced to the Brunei market, and the advent of the Shell V-Power products has been an exciting prospect for BSM.

Shell V-Power gasoline and Shell V-power diesel are high-performance fuels designed to deliver enhanced engine performance and efficiency by reducing deposits and friction.

Three stations, Mar’azmala Station in Jerudong, Pakatan Station in Tutong and Rozana Filling Station in Seria, were the focal points of the launch on Sunday.

In Brunei-Muara district, BSM Managing Director Muhammad Norshafiee Dato Paduka Hj Abd Jalil was on site at the Mar’azmala Station in Jerudong, as well as owner of Mar’azmala Petrol Station & Trading, Pehin Orang Kaya Lela Pahlawan Major General (Rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Hj Mohammad Jaafar Hj Abdul Aziz.

BSM said that the Shell V-Power gasoline and Shell V-Power diesel will supplement, and not replace, the motor fuels currently available on the Brunei market.

The pump price for V-Power is currently valued at 82 cents per litre and will fluctuate based on crude oil market prices.

Shell’s other fuels — Shell Premium, Shell Super, Shell Regular and Shell Diesel — will still be available at the current subsidised prices.

V-Power is designed to protect car engines and increase efficiency by maximising energy and improving engine conditions.

Several car enthusiasts from the local motoring society showed up for the launch at Mar’azmala Petrol Station, eager to try out the new V-Power fuels.

Foreign-registered vehicles will also be allowed to purchase the V-Power products, said BSM.

With every purchase of Shell V-Power, motorists will stand a chance to win a Porsche Macan S until June 30. The first few customers will also receive attractive gifts while stocks last.

Shell V-Power gasoline is available at 14 retail stations while Shell V-Power Diesel is available at seven retail stations.
