I switched from Chevron to Shell. Had 2 injectors on my Jetta failed on me. Took the injectors once myself, they were full of deposits.
Talked to my buddy at VW, he recommended to switch to Shell. He had switched couple of years ago, and never had a problem with his cars.

Fashinating video! Not only the test itself, but the host's enunciation. Reminds me of several years back when Sean Connery appeared at the Oscars (Oscarsh?) to announce an award...
