While always a loyal customer Fahrin’s official journey with Shell began when he was asked to be the Shell FuelSave Ambassador for Malaysia in 2009. In May that year, Fahrin underwent intensive fuel saving training with John and Helen Taylor, the Guinness World Record holders for Fuel Economy, in Dresden, Germany.
During his training stint, Fahrin not only learnt why not all fuels are the same, but also how to get the most savings by adopting Shell’s FuelSave tips. Using what he learnt, he then represented Malaysia in the Shell 1 Litre Challenge which simulates real driving experiences competing against Shell FuelSave Ambassadors from six other countries. He emerged champion at the Dresden event after clocking in 21.3 kilometers on just 1 litre of Shell FuelSave!
Since then, he has made it his personal mission to educate as many Malaysian motorists to be as fuel efficient as possible, and in the process putting more Ringgit back into their pockets. The actor, model and television host truly believes that it is important to choose the right fuel for your car because not all fuels are the same.
He also strongly encourages Malaysian motorists to adopt Shell FuelSave tips in their daily driving. The tip he practices most often is to avoid over revving. These tips are simple and practical, but they can make a real difference in fuel consumption – one whole litre for every full tank!
