The 2014 Shell FuelSave Challenge, held for the sixth consecutive year by Shell Malaysia, successfully held its Central Regional Challenge on Saturday in Petaling Jaya with the aim of demonstrating to Malaysian drivers how making smarter choices on the road can help them improve their fuel efficiency.
Abdul Hafiz was crowned the Central region winner and walked away with a cash prize of RM2,000 and will represent the region in the National Finals to be held in October in Kuala Lumpur. He clocked 18.88 km per litre on Shell FuelSave 95, beating nine other contestants. All participants drove the Hyundai Inokom Elantra 1.6 Sport, the official car for the Shell FuelSave Challenge 2014, sponsored by Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors Sdn. Bhd, along a stipulated route of 114 kilometres.
A jubilant Abdul Hafiz from Bandar Baru Bangi remarked, “The drive today was very interesting as it showed me how easy it is to improve fuel efficiency by putting to practice the Shell FuelSave Tips, along with Shell FuelSave fuels. I am definitely going to adopt these smart driving habits that give me the most out of my fuel and I’ll use them at the National Finals when I compete with the other three regional winners.”
Shell has also introduced an exciting new online experience, the Shell FuelSave Journey, to engage further with all participants of the Shell FuelSave Challenge and share with them fun and interactive online activities that drive them towards making smarter fuel-saving choices, with the opportunity to win exclusive prizes and rewards.
