“Shell has over 100 years of experience in developing the technology and services that make us a leading provider of innovative and new fuels today. We believe that not all fuels are the same and as issues of fuel costs and the environmental impact of motoring begin to increasingly affect our lifestyle, it is important for our customers to be well informed and to make smart fuel choices. Since we first introduced Shell FuelSave here in March this year, the support from our friends from Sarawak has indeed been encouraging. It signifies how many people are interested in becoming a more fuel efficient driver,” said Mr Leslie Ng, National Retail Sales Manager, Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd.

“Passionate about helping the world’s motorists get the most out of every drop, we want to use the expertise inside Shell to help drivers become expert fuel-savers themselves. The 1 Litre Challenge reflects this and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to educate motoring communities to be more fuel efficient and savvy.”

Sarawak’s1 Litre Challenge State Winner George A. W. Chapman was thrilled to have clocked the most kilometres at the challenge, “This experience has been an enriching one. Not only have I truly experienced the effectiveness of adopting FuelSave tips as well as using the right fuel. I also now know how far 1 litre of fuel can take me.”

More than 2050 Malaysian motorists registered to join in this leg of the competition that challenged how far ordinary Malaysians can travel further using only 1 litre of Shell FuelSave Unleaded petrol.
