Default Shell v-power diesel

I thought I would let everyone know what additive that shell uses in their v-power diesel. It's an additive called nemo 2061 and shell mixes it at a ratio of 4L of additive for every 4700L of diesel fuel.

Anyone know anything else about nemo 2061?

The additive would vary from region. Just like all fuel.

I'd doubt that the additive would vary. Its added at the pump via 4L bottles, and the pump mixes it with the diesel as you fuel up.

Wrong.

The fuel is made by different refineries all over the country. Like here in Saint John. Irving makes fuel for...Irving, Canadian Tire, Co-op, Petro-Canada, Esso and many more. They put the additives in while it's being made. I've seen it with my own two eyes, several times.

Shell here in Saint John is made in Nova Scotia and shipped in.

It's the same drill across the world my friend.

I've seen the additive being added to the diesel fuel at the pump. This particular shell has one tank for diesel, and then mixes at the pump to differentiate it between v-power and regular diesel. The bottle is shell branded and definitely added at the station.

I've seen countless times pump jockeys add stuff to tanks. That doesn't mean that's what makes it premium.

They probably were adding a water emulsifier or whatever.

The additive is added at the pump that is mixed as it is being pumped. The basic diesel and v-power diesel are from the same underground tank.

I agree that the additives in the basic diesel are the same across the coutry. If the v-power additives are added at the distribution location, then the basic and v-power diesel are one in the same. That would not make any sense.

Just to clarify, this is for Ontario. Shell could use a different system in the east. Also this station has the choice of regular diesel and v-power diesel while pumping. Forgive any format/spelling errors, this is from a cell.

Oooooh I see what you're saying!

I'm going to check on my next fill to see how many tanks they have.

Anyone got that?

I have a Shell Truck Stop here in Traverse City, MI. It sells two forms of diesel at its pumps. One is #2 Diesel and the second is Premium Diesel it is usually 3-4cents more. I am wondering if that is "V-Power" Diesel. It has all i have been using for 2 months now as the word premium caught my eye as no one else offers it in town and there is no BP Diesel offerings in town either.

Any idea on what i am buying at shell?

my suggestion is to get ahold of the fuel distributor that serves that pump and ask them what the Premium Diesel has that makes more expensive.

Oddly enough the V-power here is the same as regular diesel elsewhere. Their regulair diesel is about 2-3 cents less per liter.
