  • So if you're like me you want your engine to be a tip-top shape and to last a long time
  • Performance is a big deal. You want your engine to perform at its highest level.
  • Are you just wasting your money buying a premium level gasoline?
  • Or should you just buy a generic gasoline and save yourself 40/50 cents per gallon.
  • We're gonna be comparing shell v-power nitro against a generic 87 octane gasoline to see if it does perform better
  • Shell V power nitro claims that it has seven times the amount of detergents
  • and it makes a lot of other bold claims saying that it's much better than the competition
  • So let's get the testing under way and find out just how good this product is
  • We will be using this engine with the see-through cylinder head and comparing the flame color to cheap gasoline
  • So it'll be interesting to find out if both of these fuels have a different amount of ethanol content
  • so I'm going to do is add two ml's of water to 10 ml's of
  • Gasoline and what this allows us to do is see how much of the ethanol in the gasoline separates out.
  • I'll do the same thing with 20 ml's of water added to 100 ml's
  • So it's the same proportion and we'll see how much of it separates out
  • so after I add the water
  • I'm going to shake this up a bit and then we'll give it about 15 minutes and we'll come back and see where the line
  • is at
  • This is the shell v-power Nitro+ water was added up to the 20 ml's you can see the line is currently between
  • 25 and 26 of this approximately 5% ethanol content in the shell v-power nitro
  • So 2 ml's of water were added to this graduated cylinder as you could see the separation is occurring between two point four and two point five
  • So there's roughly four to five percent ethanol content in the cheap gas
  • We're gonna use this generator to measure whether or not shell v-power nitro
  • will give us better fuel efficiency than the cheap gasoline and doing so i will be using kilowatt device
  • This gives us some great information on Watts amps volts and Hertz again I'm not sponsored by these guys
  • I bought this with my own money and I like to use it to just see how the engine is performing in terms of generating electricity
  • This is the space heater
  • I'll be using I'll be using this at the medium setting just to make sure it doesn't shut down from overheating on us on a
  • Hot day like today and we're gonna see how long it'll run on the shell v-power nitro, and compare it against the regular unleaded
  • We're going to start and run this engine for a while and once it's warmed up
  • Then I will top it off and then we'll see how long the engine will run
  • Okay, the engine is fully warmed up so I'm going to fill the fuel tank all the way up to the point where it's overflowing
  • And we are going be using the shell v-power nitro first
  • And then we're gonna test regular gasoline
  • I'm gonna start the engine then I'm gonna shut it off to make sure the fuel bowl the entire fuel system has filled up and
  • Then I'll fill it all of it at the top to make sure we have a fair test
  • To my left is some cheap gas and to my right is some shell v-power
  • we're gonna soak some greasy bolts one each in each of the
  • Gasoline's and we're going to come back in a few hours and see if there's any visible difference
  • So shell v-power Nitro+ claims that it can prevent wear, it removes gunk and it prevents corrosion
  • So on this small engine we're going to test whether or not it can remove gunk
  • Once we test this fuel to see how well it does at removing carbon deposits
  • we're going to actually clean this engine up real well and just run the fuel through it to see if
  • Deposits actually form using this fuel and we'll compare this to standard 87 octane
  • Ethanol 10% fuel to see if one provides a cleaner burn than the other
  • We just tested the compression and saw we had around 100 psi
  • and that was before cleaning the combustion chamber and what calm and I see a lot is that
  • If I clean the carbon out of the combustion chamber that the psi is going to drop significantly
  • So let's put that to the test and find out if we're going to see a big drop
  • Okay, we're still at 100 psi
  • We cleaned the combustion chamber in this engine and ran a full tank of shell v-power nitro through it
  • as you can see it looks like there's very little carbon build up on part of the piston
  • the exhaust valve is extremely clean and it looks like there are parts of the head that looked fairly clean as well
  • So the shell v-power nitro is on the right, and the cheap gas is on the left
  • As you can see the shell v power nitro has a lot more of a dark color to it
  • Appearing that it's actually done a better job of dissolving the grease
  • So let's take a closer look and just see if there is any difference
  • It also looks like there's a little bit more dirt accumulation in the shell v-power nitro than the cheap gas.
  • so what im gonna do now is go ahead and remove both bolts and take a closer look at them
  • So this is the cheap gas
  • This is the expensive gas as you can see when I placed both of these bolts on top of the paper a lot more residue
  • Was left behind where the cheap gas was used
  • Indicating that it did not do as good of a job as far as cleaning the bolt.
  • The shell v power nitro is on the right, the cheap gas is on the left.
  • The shell v power nitro did a far better job than the cheap gas as far as cleaning
  • Also the color of the fuel is much different after allowing this fuel to sit for 24 hours
  • The show-up is still a lot darker in color
  • Indicating that the detergents are suspending a lot of the contamination that it removed from the bolts.
  • So does shell v-power nitro deliver on the promise that it does a better job of cleaning than cheap gas
  • I think the answer to that is yes as we saw in the dirty bolt competition in to the far superior job removing dirt and grime
  • Compared to the cheap gas. What does this mean for your fuel system?
  • If you use this product
  • It's likely to help clean the fuel system in its entirety
  • Including the intake valves as well as the injectors which makes a big difference regarding fuel efficiency and performance
  • Now regarding whether or not this product is better than using some additives out there
  • I really don't think it's better than using seafoam Marvel Mystery Oil Tech Ron and that's just to name a few
  • I think there's some other better products out there that can deliver the same results
  • So the question is is it worth an extra 50 cents per gallon?
  • I don't think it is if your vehicle is designed to run on 87 octane fuel
  • What was very interesting was we compared the fuel efficiency between shell as well as a cheap gas?
  • because the
  • Engine we used was designed around 87 octane. And the ethanol content was the same for both fuels we didn't see any benefit
  • So why spend the extra fifty cents per gallon?
  • why not just use some sort of fuel additive and ultimately save a lot of money and achieve the same results finally a big
  • Thank you to everyone recommended this video. I really appreciate it. I read your comments and I do videos on them
  • Please keep those ideas coming and I'll keep making videos. Please. Take care and look forward to next time
