HOUSTON -- Shell continued its efforts to educate consumers about the benefits of using its high-quality fuels by giving away thousands of gallons of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines to drivers Friday.
The oil company hosted "Protect Your Engine" gasoline giveaways in four markets: Miami, Chicago, Dallas and Seattle. In each of these markets, one selected Shell station provided each participating vehicle with up to 20 gallons of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasoline for free.
"At Shell, we believe educating drivers that all gasolines are not the same is key to helping them keep their vehicle's engines running at their best. After all, a vehicle is typically the second costliest investment people make," stated Karen Wildman, Shell North American brand and communications manager. "Since drivers depend so heavily on their vehicles in today's economic climate, Shell is dedicated to providing them with valuable information, products and opportunities that will help them get the most out of every drop of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines."
According to Shell, all grades of its gasolines contain a unique, patented Nitrogen Enriched Cleaning System designed to clean up the "gunk" -- also known as carbon deposits -- which lower-quality gasolines can leave behind. The system also acts as a protective barrier to shield and protect engines from performance-robbing gunk, helping engines run at their best.
Houston-based Shell Oil Products US -- a subsidiary of Shell Oil Co. -- has a network of approximately 6,100 branded gasoline stations in the Western United States.
