Shell introduces new grade of premium gas

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) -

Shell gas stations nationwide are now selling a new, more expensive grade of premium gasoline.

It's called Shell V-Power Nitro Plus.

Shell claims the high-end fuel's benefits include longer engine life and improved performance.

No independent analysis is available of Shell's claims.

According to a report in USA today, independent experts say Shell's assertions seem plausible until there's independent evidence to support or disprove them.

Your vehicle doesn't need premium gas unless the manufacturer recommends or requires it.

If you're not sure, check your owner's manual or the label inside the fuel door.
