  • Shell Recharge Simpang Pulai north-bound DC charger – 180 kW CCS2, book via ParkEasy, RM4/min

    Shell Recharge has launched its fifth highway 180 kW DC charger on collaboration with Porsche in Malaysia. The fifth site is located north-bound on the PLUS highway at Shell RTC Simpang Pulai (Rural Transformation Centre), which is located just before the Simpang Pulai north-bound R&R.

    Booking and payment for the charger can be made with Shell’s ParkEasy app. In the app, choose Shell HPC Northbound and then choose Simpang Pulai, Ipoh. Use our referral code R88W3N2T when you download the ParkEasy app and you’ll get some free credits to try it out.

    As with the other Shell 180 kW chargers, although the hardware (and the corresponding physical parking) features dual CCS2 guns, only one can be used. The single gun is configured to output a maximum of 180 kW charging power. If Shell chooses to activate the second gun in view of higher utilisation in the future, each gun will probably output a maximum power of 90 kW each.

    With the base level membership that has no annual fee, the 180 kW charger is priced at RM4 per minute with a minimum ParkEasy balance of RM200 required before you can start charging. You can reserve the charger 10 minutes in advance. You can also collect BonusLink points when you recharge.

    Shell Recharge Gold & Platinum members can reserve the charger up to 1 hour in advance and charge at a cheaper rate of as low as RM1 per minute, but there is an annual membership fee to pay.

    The other Shell Recharge 180 kW chargers are at Pagoh north-bound, Seremban north-bound, Seremban south-bound and Tangkak south-bound.

  • Filling up slowly gets you more fuel compared to doing it quickly, fact or fiction? – Pak Cik Shell experiments

    Shell Malaysia Trading managing director Shairan Huzani Husain, who is more affectionately known as Pak Cik Shell, is back to tackle another myth relating to refuelling a car. This time, the focus is on whether filling up slowly will net you extra fuel compared to doing it quickly.

    In a recent video posted on his official Instagram account, Pak Cik Shell is seen using a fuel pump set to deliver 10 litres of RON 95 petrol to fill a canister. While he’s filling up rapidly by fully depressing the handle on the fuel nozzle, another Shell employee (called William) is filling up another canister at a much, much slower rate.

    After both canisters are filled, it is revealed that both contain exactly 10 litres of RON 95 petrol, so it doesn’t matter whether you’re filling up slowly or quickly, the amount coming out of the pump is the same.

    If you’re getting a sense of déjà vu, that’s because Pak Cik Shell conducted a similar experiment last March when a theory went around social media claiming that fully depressing the handle on a fuel nozzle will result in customers getting less fuel than what they paid for – that was also disproven.

    Such theories arise due to the notion that petrol vaporises very easily, so when the fuel is pumped at a faster rate, it is believed that more of it will be “lost” to the air. Yes, fuel evaporation does happen when refuelling and can be affected by temperature and other environmental factors, but its impact on the volume delivered is miniscule, as the experiment proves.

    Of course, there’s no harm if you want to refuel slowly at the pump, although you’ll probably be wasting more time than necessary. There’s nothing significant to gain from doing it and those waiting for their turn to fuel up may be less than pleased.

  • Shell Motorsport Collection limited edition set of 7 Bluetooth remote control cars in Malaysia; RM30 each

    Shell Malaysia has today launched the Shell Motorsports collection of remote controlled cars, which are modelled after the racing cars of teams in partnership for various high-level international motorsport series.

    Here, the Shell Motorsport Collection offers a selection of Bluetooth remote control cars representing various marques campaigning in partnership with Shell in motorsport, joining storied Italian supercar marque Ferrari in this collection of remote control scale models.

    A total of seven Bluetooth remote control cars are on the Shell Motorsport Collection roster. In a similar fashion to previous scale model collections offered by Shell Malaysia, the complete set of seven cars in the Shell Motorsport Collection will not be offered for sale all at the same time; instead, the models will be offered one at a time on a weekly basis, from October 8 until December 8, 2022.

    The following is a list of the cars and the dates that they will be available:

    • Ferrari SF90 F1 (8 Oct to 8 Dec 2022)
    • BMW M4 Motorsport (8 Oct to 14 Oct 2022)
    • Nissan Formula E Gen 2 (15 Oct to 21 Oct 2022)
    • Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC (22 Oct to 28 Oct 2022)
    • Australian Supercars Shell V-Power Racing Team Ford Mustang GT (29 Oct to 4 Nov 2022)
    • Team Penske Indycar (5 Nov to 11 Nov 2022)
    • NASCAR Team Penske Ford Mustang GT (12 Nov to 18 Nov 2022)

    These die-cast 1:41 scale models have been developed with BrandBase, and all are products officially licensed by their respective constructors and teams. The remote control aspect is via Bluetooth control, which enable users to control the scale models through their mobile devices.

    What will these cost? To purchase these scale models individually, customers will need to purchase a minimum of RM50 in Shell fuels, in order to be eligible to purchase the models at RM30 each. These however do not include the smart battery which is sold separately at RM30, which enables Bluetooth remote control of the models.

    With the purchase of a four-litre pack of Shell Helix engine oil, customers will receive the exclusive Ferrari SF90 F1 scale model for free, along with the Bluetooth smart battery. Meanwhile, purchasing a minimum of RM80 worth of Shell V-Power Racing petrol (at participating stations) will make the buyer eligible to purchase the exclusive collector’s box for RM80.

    In conjunction with the launch of this Shell Motorsport Collection, Shell Malaysia will be holding events at KL Sentral from October 17 to 23, as well as at the Mid Valley Megamall from October 26 to 30, and these venues will be where the public will get to try out all seven remote control scale models on a specially designed course.

  • Pak Cik Shell shows why you shouldn’t be in a fuel tanker truck’s blind spots – the driver cannot see you

    Earlier this month, a video of a fuel tanker truck colliding with a Perodua Myvi went viral on social media. In the short clip, the driver of the Myvi had entered the blind spot of the fuel tanker truck as it attempted to join the road, which resulted in the driver of the massive vehicle being unable to spot the hatchback and both making contact.

    It’s an unfortunate (and costly) accident, and the lesson here is to be cautious when being around large commercial vehicles such as a fuel tanker truck. The blind spots of such vehicles are a lot more substantial compared to a regular passenger vehicle, as Shell Malaysia Trading managing director Shairan Huzani Husain, who is also known affectionately as “Pak Cik Shell,” demonstrates in a video uploaded to his Instagram account.

    In the video, Pak Cik Shell climbs into a fuel tanker truck and shows a first-person view of what a driver sees from within the cab. It may look all clear looking out, but upon exiting, we find that there are several cars and motorcycles around the fuel tanker truck, with some being several feet away.

    Commercial trucks have four blind spots which are called “no zones,” and if you drive behind, directly in front or on either side of a truck, the driver cannot see your vehicle. So, please be careful and avoid overtaking such trucks on the left or being in its blind spot. Give them room if you can because it’s better to be safe than sorry.

     
     
  • Touch ‘n Go, Shell Malaysia launch RFID payments at 88 stations nationwide; at 200 stations by year end

    Touch ‘n Go and Shell Malaysia have launched RFID payment functionality at 88 Shell stations nationwide, where customers will be able pay for fuel using the cashless method at selected pumps.

    As the name suggests, the cashless payment method for purchasing fuel at participating Shell stations is enabled through an activated RFID tag. This one-time activation and registration is conducted through the Touch ‘n Go eWallet, and once that is successful, users will just need to drive their RFID-equipped vehicle to the RFID bay at the participating Shell station.

    A preferred refuelling amount will need to be selected by the user beforehand, and payment for fuel will be auto-debited from the user’s Touch ‘n Go eWallet account. The RFID-equipped vehicle will be detected within seconds, says Touch ‘n Go, and the fuel pump will be reserved for the user for 80 seconds from that point.

    Once refuelling is completed and the nozzle is returned, any unused amount will be refunded within 10 minutes of refuelling; however, there may be instances where the refund may take up to two business days to complete, the company said in a written response.

    For customers who have been collecting loyalty points with BonusLink, Shell Malaysia has also integrated the points collection functionality into the RFID payment method launched today. The Touch ‘n Go eWallet app will prompt the user for a BonusLink card before refuelling, and one BonusLink card is supported for each RFID tag.

    At this time, Touch ‘n Go’s partnership for RFID implementation for fuel purchase transactions is only with Shell, group CEO of Touch ‘n Go Group Effendy Shahrul Hamid said.

    Each of the 88 Shell stations nationwide currently have two RFID bays per station, and this number may grow to include more pumps per station if uptake of the RFID payment method is encouraging, said Mobility for Shell Malaysia and Singapore general manager Seow Lee Ming.

    “We are fortunate to have found a like-minded partner in Shell, who aligns with our ambition to provide customers with a cashless, contactless driving experience, and is helping us pave the way towards delivering more innovative offerings for both sets of our customers,” the Touch ‘n Go group CEO said.

    The pilot programme for making payment with RFID for fuel purchases was announced in May 2021, and began with five Shell stations in the Klang Valley from July 13 to August 12 last year. In May this year, RFID availability was expanded to 35 Shell stations in the Klang Valley.

    See the full list of Shell stations supporting RFID payments, here.
