Owning a motorbike is more than getting from Point A to Point B, it’s an experience, a truth felt in the hearts of riders around the world.

When it comes to refueling, you are faced with a life changing decision.

Do you go for the normal unleaded fuel or do you splash out on Shell’s V-Power unleaded?

It seems from the results of our recent twitter poll just over half of our voters have questioned if the advanced fuel it is worth the extra money.

Based on the response we thought it only fair to find out to share our experience with our readers.We did a real life test to see if it’s worth the extra cash. We topped up a 250cc Yamaha X City scooter with 7.94 liter of Shell V-Power unleaded.

At current prices a liter of Vpower is £1.25

We reset the odometer and monitored the ride closely to log any improvements in mileage, ride quality, noise and throttle response. Watch out for our full report to follow soon.

Here’s a bit of useful info

Shell has been harnessing science and technology to pioneer the world’s most innovative fuels. Shell claim the V-Power fuel

“Helps to reduce engine friction”
“is designed to help restore your engine’s performance”
“it helps to clean and protect, giving you our best cleaning power for your engine.”

What is DYNAFLEX Technology I hear you ask?

DYNAFLEX Technology is the name of Shells fuel formulations for V-Power unleaded, designed to help clean and protect your engine.DYNAFLEX Technology is a complex blend that Shell has specially designed and enriched with powerful cleaning agents to help maintain the cleanliness of key fuel system components and protect them from.

So from my understanding this basically means Shell have added cleaners and boosters into the fuel.

So this may justify the price difference…

Now we have a little background on the fuel lets see how well it performs compared to regular unleaded. Part 2 coming soon….
