Shell gas and Nitrogen

Anyone hear about this? Shell is "enriching" their gasoline with nitrogen.

I used it in my last tank switched to BP and actually noticed that the Shell gas made the engine run smoother. Anyone else notice this?

I typically use Shell because it's convenient to home. Seen the ads but can't honestly say I notice any difference. My guess is that it could help long term, who knows.

Odd, my gas filler cap says "Ford recommends BP fuels"...haha

I have Shell available a few miles from home, so I use it. I've seen the commercials, so all of that is fine with me.

My "stock" ST likes regualar just fine, so any Shell additive is a bonus. I guess we will see how this works out.

I do applaud Shell for staying ahead of the curve.

Eh I have always used Shell gas. Just saw it on a sign and wondered "what the heck". Interesting. Maybe someone good at chemistry can enlighten us as to whether or not this would truly work.

Well this is news to me...I just put shell in my car yesterday. And my car started acting weird, first off I thought for sure the amount I put in would fill it up but it didnt, my idle seems kinda low and as if the engine isnt running like it was. I mean I did just clean my air filter and the MAF figured it was something with that, but maybe its the gas. I'll run this tank dry, fill'er up with a different brand and see what happens lol.
