    Shell Have just introduced a new OCTANO Super high Octane Fuel for high performance cars.

    Available next month in the garage pump will give Ferrari an extra 30% power increase, the rep told me that Shell engineers and Ferrari have used this mixture to provide optimium performance from Ferrari Engines. It also contains an additive as used in rocket fuel which coats the bores with a secret liquid teflon that ensures minimium engine wear.

    Its on Sale at a cheaper intro rate of 70p Litre, It also makes the car sound more like an F1 car too!!

    Carnt wait to fill up on this stuff.

    It can also be used in both petrol and diesel engines, leaded and unleaded

    I've heard that it also has a new ingredient that makes you irresistable to women. Aparrently the secret ingredient has been extracted from the bile duct of the Bolivian pangolin.

    It is also going to be a superb sexual lubricant, but seeing as I have just conrtacted myself as a Franciscan monk for the next sixteen years, I'll have absolutely no use of these properties.

    Seeya tonight Joe (if the Abbott let's me)

    They've been selling this as 'Formula V' in Germany for some time. It's 100 octane, and it's about bloody time they spread the joy, frankly.

    I'm so sad, and probably stupid, that I actually did a quick search on the web to see if Shell Octano was mentioned anywhere else.

    All I established is that octano is spanish for octane.

    They probaby need to do 100 octane in Greece because the petrol station owners dilute it to make more profit so you loose the extra octains anyway. I am greek by the way and once I filled up a Merc 200E which promptly refused to go up the next hill becasue of all the water in the petrol !!!
