At the event Shell representative Taha Magrabi said, “Recently there has been greater demand in the automobile industry for lower viscosity oils that ensures high performing engines. Shell has responded to this demand in Pakistan by introducing synthetic motor oils that are crucial to delivering better fuel economy and higher performance. We’re proud to be a part of events like the PakWheel’s auto show, which bring together so many people who understand and want to know more about what fuels contribute to high performing vehicles.”
