This is an FYI. I own a new XGen C-store and I sell Shell gas. Several months ago all dealers in the New Orleans and Cincinatti areas were trained to introduce the new V Power from Shell. While I cant answer the specifics on its 'New Chemistry"

I can say that our octane was rating higher than posted. The state test all stations for water , octane , pump accuracy....

Well I was getting 88 on 87, 90 on 89 and 94 on 93. So in class they instructed us that the new premium was going to a higher octane and it would cost me $.04 per gallon more. Well it does in regards to both above. Apparently enough people in both city's metro area bought the new fuel that it is going nation wide.

So now you can get the higher octane at your Shell once it displays new V power.

For those who boost .....a better fuel with higher octane may give a peice of mind.

Whats the deal with shell and texaco? They are changing some and not others around here. Did Shell buy Texaco, or texaco, shell or did they just merge.



Sorry for the off topic.

Art, since learning of your 94 octane I've been fueling up with Shell at Vets. and Causeway by lakeside shopping center and noticed the V-Power sticker but still has a 93 octane rating. Are they just waiting on new stickers or is the high octane gas not yet available ??
