NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 25 – Vivo Energy Kenya, the firm that distributes and markets Shell fuels and lubricants, has revamped its fuels products by launching the Shell FuelSave Unleaded and Shell FuelSave Diesel aimed at reducing fuel consumption.

The two products will now replace the current Shell Unleaded Extra and Shell Diesel Extra fuels respectively.

Vivo Energy Kenya Managing Director Polycarp Igathe said the innovation behind the new fuels lies in a fuel economy formula, which helps reduce consumption.

Shell FuelSave Diesel is designed to ignite faster and burn more effectively, to enhance fuel economy in a car engine. It is also aimed at protecting against the build-up of deposits at the injector nozzles as well as promote, quicker ignition compared to regular diesel.

On the other hand, Shell FuelSave Unleaded is designed to enable the engine to turn more freely and make more of the fuel’s energy available to drive the wheels, by lubricating where engine oils are less effective, such as the upper piston ring.

It also helps keep inlet valves clean, prevent deposit formation and improve engine efficiency.
