Rainer Buckel, Owner of Buckel Farm

Switching to Shell FuelSave Diesel for his four commercial farming vehicles in 2009, farm Rainer Buckel achieved the following benefits:

  • On average, an additional 2.5 hours of operation per tank of fuel, therefore extending refuelling intervals
  • Considerable reduction in fuel consumption
  • Steady engine performance under various conditions

Shell FuelSave Diesel has also been designed to help:

  • Keep injection systems clean, which helps to reduce maintenance costs
  • Protect the engine from corrosion

Spread across the entire fleet, this could result in:

  • An annual fuel saving of approx. 1,514 litres1
  • A reduction in CO2 emissions of approx. 3,982 kg – this is roughly equivalent to the amount of CO2 emissions produced annually by one passenger car2

We are very satisfied. In particular, we are convinced by the very good value for money that Shell FuelSave Diesel offers. And the fact that, as well as fuel, we can also save CO2 emmissions is, of course, all the better.
