What is gunk?

Gunk is another name for carbon deposits that can build up on intake valves and fuel injectors which can make your engine work less efficiently. Shell V-Power NiTRO+ has seven times the cleaning agents required to meet federal standards and removes an average of 60% of performance-robbing gunk left by lower quality premium gasoline, starting with the very first tank.

What is corrosion?

Corrosion is caused by moisture and other contaminants that can make their way into a vehicle’s fuel tank. It can impact the fuel pump, fuel lines and fuel injectors. Furthermore, formation of particles from corrosive processes such as rusting of steel surfaces can contribute to the blockage of fuel filters, impacting overall vehicle operation.

What is wear?

Wear can occur when two metal surfaces rub against each other leading to loss of metal from those surfaces. This can occur in the piston assembly, fuel pump and fuel injectors and can cause higher oil consumption, loss of power and higher emissions. Go to to learn more!


What’s the Power of Techron?

Protect your performance

Chevron fuel contains Techron, a unique additive designed to protect your engine from harmful deposit buildup that can interfere with your car’s performance. Keeping an engine clean with Techron maximizes mileage and helps prevent loss of power.

Clean us from the inside

Techron uses a polyether amine (PEA)-based chemistry that’s unbeatable at cleaning and protecting your engine. So you can keep your car as clean on the inside as it is on the outside.

Cleaner air

Intake valve deposits from low quality gasoline and any fuel injector deposits can increase tailpipe emissions. Keeping your engine clean with Techron helps to lower these emissions.
