Isn't Total Excellium and Shell's V-Power just marketing gimmic? Kenya's fuel is sourced in bulk and KPC pumps it inland and at Industrial area Nairobi everyone collects their share from KPC and distributes. In essence Kenol Kobil/Shell/Total/Oilcom...all have the same fuel barring adulteration. OR just maybe they adding those tablets that falsely claim to increase mileage per litre...

V-power is a global brand and at least for the US and EU markets those advertising claims have to be proven to the regulator.

Well,...the story with V-Power is their claim that they add "cleaning and anti-knock chemical agents to the fuel". The "advantages" are supposed to be "smoother running engine, cleaner engine" ..something abut "reduced carbon deposits" and "reduced risk of knocking". I drive a Subaru and Shell agents think all Subaru drivers are idiots who will fork over an additional ~25/- per liter over the normal fuel chasing after this mysterious "extra-performance" (Toyota, Nissan, Mazda people,...do you get this constant V-Power cross sell from attendants?); So I asked, and I got this half-baked explanation. I also did try a full tank of that V-Power once (for the sake of science,..also before the fuel prices tanked and the difference was 10/- a liter) on a drive to and from the country and didn't notice any difference in engine performance or increased smoothness.
Unless you have one of those Jap performance cars with sensitive turbos and requires sijui those 99 RON fuel rating, you are being had by Shell...Laughing out loudly Laughing out loudly Its BS in my opinion ....plus, what is to stop unscrupulous station operators loading normal fuel and pumping it out of the V-Power nozzles and collecting a cool extra 25/- per liter?

When Shell launched it's V-power, Gavin Bennett did an article in Sunday nation that unless you are racing on Formula One you will not get any performance increase with V-power on our 50 kph roads and bumps on 'super-highways'.

Anyway Total are questioning why you spend extra on Shell's V-power while you could get same fuel at cost of normal unleaded petrol

Such kind of informative posts make me stick to wazua, day in day out.

there have also been numerous reports of several shell stations selling adulterated fuel, esp shell kileleshwa, limuru road, thika road and many others.

Total,our good NSE friend KK and National oil are much more ideal especially for the peace of mind

I've tested both V-Power & Excellium.

In both cases the car consumed MORE fuel than with normal premium petrol!
