Shell Wants To Fuel Your Harley-Davidson

A sponsorship alliance has been signed between the 2 companies. Harley-Davidson recommends premium gasoline for all their motorcycles. Now they recommend that you refuel at a Shell gas station. Harley will soon place all 14,000+ Shell-branded stations on the motorcycle maker’s online Harley-Davidson Ride Planner, where riders will find Shell V-Power premium gasoline. Riders will even be able to get an aerial view of the station and its surroundings prior to the trip. As part of this alliance, Shell also will proudly be the exclusive fuels sponsor of the Harley-Davidson 105th Anniversary Celebration in August 2008. No, refueling with premium gas from another brand will not void your warranty.

    Now if they could get Shell to leave the evaporative sleeves off the nozzles, on at least one of the pumps at a station, so that it fits into a motorcycle without having to pull back the sleeve with your other hand to trigger it…

    The fuels that we are forced buy at the pump today are inherently unstable. The shelf life is very short. If you have vehicles that are not used regularly the fuel gets bad very quickly. Think about motorcycles and Minnesota this time of year.
    We have several Chevrolet work vans in seasonal service in Minnesota. Every fall when the trucks are not in daily service we find that they develop a miss and run rough. The “Check Engine Soon” light comes on and stays on.
    Literally all we have to do to resolve the problem is drive a little out of our way to a Shell Gas Station and fill up with regular leaded fuel. The engines smooth out and run normally within five to ten minutes of freeway travel. Dash light goes out and everything is normal again.
    The Chevrolet Dealership told me this secret years ago and apparetntly it is a regular problem using other fuels in this climate. Shell does not compensate me in any way for promoting their products.
    If you want stable gasoline for your motorcycle go to the airport and fill a five gallon can with 100LL fuel. This is 100 octane “low-lead” fuel that can stay all winter in your motorcycle and be good to go in the spring. The fuel companies cannot mess with the aviation people like they do with the surface people.
