Multiple use through September 2, 2018 - Shell is offering an additional 5 cents off when you fill a min of 5 gals on your next NiTRO+ Premium Gas purchase Max 20 Galllons per fill.

Good deal for those whose cars require premium gas. Not all cars need Premium gas though. Check your owner's manual

10¢/gal Shell V-Power® NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline Offer
*Restrictions apply. To qualify for this offer you must 1) be a Fuel Rewards® member and 2) swipe your Fuel Rewards® card or enter your Alt ID when you fuel at a participating Shell station. Each time you purchase at least five (5) gallons of Shell V-Power® NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline between April 2, 2018 and September 2, 2018, you will receive a 5¢/gal reward. Rewards will be added to your Fuel Rewards® account immediately after making a qualifying Shell V-Power® NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline fuel purchase. Rewards earned will stack with rewards available from Gold/Silver Status for savings of at least 10¢/gal for members with Gold Status and 8¢/gal for members with Silver Status. The Fuel Rewards® savings earned through this offer expire on the last day of the month immediately following the month in which they are earned. Redeem Fuel Rewards® savings with your Fuel Rewards® card or Alt ID at participating Shell stations. Fuel Rewards® savings are limited to 20 gallons of fuel per purchase, per vehicle, or fraud limits placed by Shell and/or limits placed on their financial card by their financial institution, each of which may be lower. Fuel Rewards® savings must be redeemed in a single transaction. Once you begin to dispense fuel using your Fuel Rewards® savings, you must dispense to the 20-gallon limit or you forfeit any remaining discounted gallons of fuel. For example, if you only pump fifteen (15) gallons of fuel, you would abandon the remaining five (5) gallons of discounted fuel. If you have a rewards balance greater than the current per-gallon price of fuel, the price will roll down to the maximum capability of the fuel equipment, and your remaining rewards will be saved for a future fuel purchase. It may not be possible to combine multiple discounts and/or rewards in a single transaction. Dispenser may require a price of up to 10.9 cents per gallon.

Very few cars require premium gas. The "hot deal" for most would be to avoid this deal.

With that said, my car does require 93 octane premium...but all the Shells in my area only carry 91 as premium...so just my luck Cool

While that's true. Most luxury or performance cars do. And another small portion thinks by using premium, they get better performance or cleaner engines regardless of what the manual says.


As I said, check your owner's manual. If it says to use premium as per your owner's manual, the additional savings adds up since this is multiple use thru September.

Well, that small portion would be incorrect unless their car's ECU is modified to accept the higher octane ratings that (usually) comes with "premium" fuel.

If not, it's a placebo effect.

Never said it wasn't a placebo effect but there are people who still do, regardless.

I have a sports sedan that says premium fuel. I have downgraded to 91 then 87. Performance difference is barely noticeable. Everything runs smoothly for couple years. Savings of 40-60c pg.

Nothing interesting about that, since that is what it is meant to do (ECU auto-adjusts down on modern cars).

It should not "hurt" your car (unless you are using bad gas). You just won't get full performance if your car requires premium.

Well, you do have to accelerate to highway speeds from time to time or pass another car who's going to slow in traffic don't you? It's not always about driving fast but accelerating safely when needed.

Just b/c you don't feel any difference doesn't mean you can't damage your pistons and cylinder walls if your ECU can't adjust timing enough to compensate for the lower octane and you constantly get pinging and knocking you can't hear at your age.

Sure you can save 40-60c/gal but if you keep the car long enough, a new engine may cost more than any money saved.

Not saying it's happening in your case, but saying what you can't see/hear may hurt you in the end. Not keeping your car for long then no big deal. It's the next owner's problem.
