Shell V Power Diesel or similar.

Postby Devils Advocate » Fri Sep 01, 2017 9:59 am

Is this widely available on the continent guys?, or is it a bit of a search to find it? Any other lesser known brands that do a similar offering. Scarce enough in the UK so I'm assuming it'll be harder to find on this jaunt, or I could be pleasantly surprised!

Thanks once more in advance.

Gas Oil "A" at our local shell only. I use BP Ultimate Diesel it's probably similar and more readily available. You could check the difference on a web site..

Gasoil A. I'll remember and thanks very much CB, very helpful!! Yep, Ultimate will be fine too if Shell sites are scarce.

Many thanks once more.

Gasoleo A is the standard diesel. Premium diesel is available at many gas stations under various names depending on the supplier.

Just wonder what the difference is, is it performance/milage or both?

Both wollie depending on the engine and usage. I've also noticed it keeps the oil cleaner too.
