SHELL FUELSAVE CHALLENGE CROWNS ITS CENTRAL REGIONAL CHALLENGE WINNER
Shell Malaysia held the second regional challenge of the Shell FuelSave Challenge 2013 in Kuala Lumpur, crowning Amirul Fadzil Abdul Malek from Kuala Lumpur with the Central Regional Winner title. Amirul walked away with a cash prize of RM2,000 and a chance to compete in the Grand Finale to be held in October. Shell brings to life the much anticipated nationwide event that demonstrates the full potential of Shell FuelSave 95 through a challenge along a stipulated route of 92 kilometres.
Amirul clocked in 20.80 km on one litre of Shell FuelSave 95, competing against nine other contestants from the Central region. The Shell FuelSave Challenge aims to demonstrate to Malaysian motorists just how much further they can go on a full tank of Shell FuelSave 95 coupled with the use of the Shell FuelSave Tips. Malaysians are becoming more conscious on savings and actively seek ways to reduce spending while ensuring the lifestyles they enjoy are not compromised. The Shell FuelSave Challenge which presents real life driving conditions does just that by inculcating and rewarding good habits to encourage more Malaysian motorists in becoming fuel savers,” said Christine Liew, Head of Retail Marketing, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Brunei, Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn. Bhd.
Amirul expressed, “Participating in the Shell FuelSave Challenge has definitely been an exciting and educational experience. Practising Shell Fuel Save Tips in combination with using Shell FuelSave95 clearly improved fuel efficiency for me and it led me to become the Regional Champion. I am really looking forward to take up the challenge again in the Grand Finale with the other two Regional Winners.”

Loke Ean Bee, Shell’s very own Fuels Scientist.
