Dear Crissy

Shell holiday gas card

There’s nothing like packing your family and way too many of your possessions into the vehicle for a good old-fashioned holiday road trip.

Of course, you’ll want to make certain that your vehicle is not only safe and road-ready, but that you’ve done everything in your power to ensure that your car is going to get the best gas mileage on your voyage.

More about Shell Gasolines

Did you know that Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines contain 20% more active cleaning agents than before? This helps protect engine’s intake valves and fuel injectors from performance-robbing gunk. No other gasoline protects better!

    Seems like the giveaway question is a typo. How to get beach-ready this summer for a holiday road trip post? Hmmm. Well I suppose we’ll get ready by making it through winter! :)

    I get beach-ready… by not going to the beach lol
