Shell claims the new petrols have “more cleaning and friction-reducing molecules” than its previous range, allowing them to remove – in the case of its highest grade of petrol – “up to 80 per cent of performance-robbing deposits”.

The company said the new range was a result of more than five years of research involving more than 250 cars clocking a total of over three million kilometres.

This was in response to a trend towards smaller engines which are turbocharged and high-compression.

These engines operate at higher temperatures and speeds, making them more prone to carbon deposits building up in crucial areas, according to Shell.
