Shell Named Top Gas Brand by 'Popular Mechanics'

HOUSTON -- Shell was named the "Top Gasoline Brand" in the 2009 Popular Mechanics Reader's Choice Awards. Among five brand choices, Shell was voted No. 1.

This is the first year the magazine conducted the survey to determine readers' favorite consumer products across 30 categories. More than 7,000 Popular Mechanics readers participated in the inaugural survey that voted Shell as their favorite gas brand.

Shell is "passionate about providing drivers with high-quality gasolines that can help improve their vehicles' performance," stated Karen Wildman, Shell North American brand and communications manager. "Everyone at Shell is thrilled to receive an honor like this that helps reinforce our message that all gasolines are not the same."

In March, Shell introduced its Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines that contain a unique patented formula designed to clean critical engine parts with the most advanced Shell technology to date, according to the company.

Shell V-Power, the brand's premium grade gasoline, boasts the highest concentration of the Shell Nitrogen Enriched cleaning system, with five times the amount of cleaning agents required by federal government standards.

All Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines have also been successfully tested against the TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline standard and have been certified as a TOP TIER gasoline—a standard that was introduced by BMW, General Motors, Honda and Toyota for enhancing detergency performance of gasoline. Volkswagen and Audi have since become additional sponsors of this standard, which is more stringent than the government standard for detergency.
