Title: Fuel Journey Video
The following script contains voice over delivered by two characters; one male, one female.
The female voice over (V/O) provides very short status updates, alerts and technical information throughout the journey. Tonally, it will have the feel of pre-recorded messaging, with clear, impassive delivery i.e train station announcement, Siri, etc.
The male voice over is the main narrator and your companion for the journey. He takes on the role of mission control, communicating with you over a radio channel and guiding you through the experience.
Ok... Welcome on board.
We’re almost all set here, just relax, take a look around…
That liquid surrounding you is Shell FuelSave Diesel.
You’re going to travel along with it as it surges through an in-line six cylinder diesel engine, and some of the most extreme conditions you’ll ever experience.
And we’re good to go... Ready?
Telemetry readings online.
On-screen: Dashboard animates in showing temperature readings at <30°C and 14.7psi
Look down and you’ll see the pressure and temperature readings.
Keep an eye on these. You’ll see when we say extreme conditions…
We really mean it.
Entering fuel tank
Shell FuelSave Diesel is designed to help reduce foaming when refuelling,
so filling your tank can potentially be faster and easier.
That’s the engine starting - hold on!
Up through the fuel pump…
And now into the fuel line…
...There’s the rear wheels, suspension, drive shaft.
On-screen: Dashboard temperature readings at <30°C and pressure rises to 60-75 psi
And coming up on your right, you should be able to get a good view of the engine...
The piston is plunging up and down 25 times a second.
The engine is running at 1500rpm...
...That’s where we’re headed.
Approaching fuel filter
Shell FuelSave Diesel is designed to help to prevent fuel system corrosion
…We’re approaching the common rail pump now.
Here’s where you’re going to see some extreme pressure readings.
On-screen: Dashboard temperature readings rise to 35-75°C and pressure rises to 35,000 psi
Entering common rail pump
On-screen: Dashboard temperature readings rise to 120-145°C and pressure at 35,000 psi
High pressure warning
Injection into the cylinder is an extremely high-speed event.
...Brace yourself, it could be a rocky ride…And we’re off!
You’re hurtling through the injector nozzle
Entering combustion chamber
On-screen at time of injection: dashboard temperature readings rise to 1850-2000°C and pressure at 700-800 psi
Over time, deposits can build up in the
Diesel injector nozzle here, potentially reducing engine efficiency over the lifetime of the vehicle
On-screen post-ignition: dashboard temperature readings rise to 2300°C and pressure to 2700-3000 psi
Shell FuelSave Diesel unique formulation keeps the injector nozzles clean from deposits, thereby helping to improve engine efficiency and save fuel (and therefore in turn can help save CO2 emissions) over the lifetime of vehicle.
High temperature warning
Exiting through exhaust value
On-screen: Dashboard temperature readings drop to 600-800°C and pressure to less than 30 psi
Out of the combustion chamber, into the exhaust manifold...
...And straight into the turbine – see it spinning?
On-screen: Dashboard temperature readings drop to 300-400°C and pressure to 15.7 psi
And finally, onto the home stretch…
...Into the catalytic converter and particulate trap…
On-screen: Dashboard temperature readings rise to 350-500°C and pressure at 15.7 psi
...Onto the silencer...
On-screen: Dashboard temperature readings drop to >200°C and pressure to 14.5 psi
Exiting through exhaust
...And you are clear!....
...After this trip with Shell FuelSave Diesel, how will you fuel your next journey?
Shell FuelSave Diesel - Designed to last longer
Shell FuelSave Diesel is designed to help:
- Save fuel by up to 3% over the lifetime of the vehicle
- Reduce fall-off in engine performance
- Prevent fuel system corrosion
- Reduce foaming when refuelling
- Lower CO2 emissions
* Compared to regular diesel without fuel economy formula. Actual savings may vary according to vehicle, driving conditions and driving style.Internal Shell tests with heavy duty engines used in road transport vehicles have shown fuels savings of up to 3% compared to regular diesel without fuel economy formula.
Actual temperatures and psi’s can vary depending on the system arrangement, ambient temperatures and engine technologies in use.
