Whether you use Shell gasoline or diesel on your car or not, we're pretty sure you've heard of the "V-Power" fuel brand. And if you're like us who have ever-inquisitive minds, you must have wondered at any time or another what the "V" in V-Power actually stands for. In fact, we have no doubt you think you know its meaning. We did, too--until we asked Shell's technology manager for premium fuels, Michael Grundy, when we paid the Shell Technology Centre in Thornton, UK, a visit. Boy, were we wrong.
