Everyday, four drivers will become the Philippines' first ever Shell Fuel Economy Team. Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation (Pilipinas Shell) is on the lookout for the biggest fuel spenders in the country to turn them into fuel savers.
Four drivers keen to learn how to save on fuel and cut costs will be selected and will undergo training from a team of Shell scientists and fuel economy experts. The training will take place at Shell Eco-marathon Asia 2011 at the Sepang Race Track in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to help turn them into fuel savers. Aside from the all-expense paid trip, 10 finalists will win P10,000 worth of Shell Quality fuels each. The said top fuel savers, through their learning experience, will play a key role inspiring Filipino drivers to save more fuel on the road more often.
Applicants for the search can be anyone who wants to start saving fuel and money right away. It can come from the pool of drivers who drives hundreds of kilometers to visit a loved one, a parent who spends many hours driving their child to school or running errands for the family.
