Love Your Engine

Caught the very interesting video for the V Power ad at the cinemas and YouTube. It definitely reminds me a lot of the movie Transformers. One of my faves that I actually don't mind rewatching it for a good laugh. Here's the video in case you didn't catch it!

Of course beyond a good laugh and entertainment values, there is much value in fuelling our cars correctly and using the right engine lubricant. It is similar to us eating well to stay healthy and strong. 

In my last post, I shared the husbter and my thoughts on Shell V Power Racing. On our other regular rides, we opt for Shell V Power offers. This fuel is designed to protect the engine against gunk and corrosion to help keep the vehicle performing like new. Engine ‘gunk’ are carbonaceous deposits that can form in the fuel intake system of the engine. These gunk corrode the engine. In the long run  then causes a lost of power and sluggish car. The protection from Shell V Power forms a protective layer on metal surfaces, helping to prevent the corrosion of fuel system components – ultimately delivering more power to the vehicle.

Beyond the protection against gunk and corrosion that is provided by Shell V Power fuels, the folks at Shell have launched a campaign Shell Helix Extended Warranty (S.H.E.W). This is also the very first engine warranty programme in Malaysia!

All you need to do is to service your vehicles with Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology, to benefit from a warranty against lubricant-caused engine failures for up to 12 years or 200,000 km from the vehicle’s manufacturing date, whichever comes first.  The free warranty also applies to purchase of Shell Helix HX7.

S.H.E.W. is available to personal passenger vehicles that are registered to operate within Malaysia which are eight years old or less with mileage of less than 100,000 km.  Registering for S.H.E.W. is quick and simple.  All you need to do is:
1: Complete an oil change at any authorised S.H.E.W. workshop where the trained mechanics will be able to assist with registration.
2: If you opt to perform their own oil change elsewhere, you can also purchase your preferred Shell Helix Ultra and Shell Helix HX 7 motor oil from any Shell Petrol station and contact the S.H.E.W. Customer Hotline or self-register online.

Customers who have registered under S.H.E.W. will receive helpful reminders so that they never miss an oil change. They are also assured of genuine Shell Helix products when purchased through authorised S.H.E.W. workshops and at Shell Petrol stations.

Note that S.H.E.W. remains valid as long as the vehicle continues to use Shell Helix Ultra and Shell Helix HX 7 motor oil every six months or according to the manufacturer’s specified oil change interval, whichever comes first. The warranty is also transferrable to the new vehicle owner to help protect the resale value of the vehicle, provided the new owner maintains copies of the last receipts to prove the continued use of Shell Helix Ultra or Shell Helix HX7. 

This warranty S.H.E.W. covers the costs of repair or replacement of 15 engine components that may fail if it is ascertained that the Shell Helix motor oils fail to provide proper lubrication and protection. Eligible vehicle owners who have registered for S.H.E.W. can claim up to RM15,000 (for Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology users) and RM8,000 (for Shell Helix HX7 users) in repair costs.
