Shell Australia Media Release:

The phase out of Shell V-Power RACING was a carefully considered decision. We took into account a number of considerations, including the need to meet changing market requirements.
 
Moving forward, Shell V-Power will be Shell's premium performance fuel, available at selected Coles Express sites in Qld, NSW, VIC and SA. Shell V-Power is developed with Ferrari and is designed to improve the performance of many modern engines. Shell V-Power’s Friction Modification Technology (FMT) aids this. FMT is designed to help the engine turn more freely, and so help transfer energy from the fuel to the wheels more efficiently.
 
To help with the transition please refer to the question and answers below. For further information on this change, please feel free to contact Shell on 13 16 18.

FMT is designed to help the engine turn more freely, and so help transfer energy from the fuel to the wheels more efficiently.

    Shell V-Power Racing has the same engine cleaning properties as Shell V-Power but is formulated with 5% ethanol and is a 100 octane fuel.
